Delta Sigma Theta pays tribute to soror, the Queen of Soul

Fans mourn Aretha Franklin at gospel-infused public viewing

The ceremony will apparently be viewable online and would feature performances from Ariana Grande, Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Hudson, Chaka Khan, and others.

Public visitations for Aretha Franklin will begin Tuesday at the Charles H. Wright Museum for African American History in Detroit. And on Tuesday, a local funeral home transported her body to a public viewing in a show-stopping vintage hearse: a white 1940 LaSalle.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the city's local news stations including WDIV-TV and WXYZ-TV will air Aretha Franklin's homegoing service.

"She never forgot from which she came", Penn said.

"I tend to be a very organized person", Owens said.

"During the '70s, anything she made during that time, we were just dancing to and enjoying it", amusing said. "And this is her home", Taylor continued.

The museum, which had been the largest black museum in the US until the National Museum of African American History and Culture opened in Washington, D.C., in 2016, also hosted similar viewings for civil rights icon Rosa Parks after her 2005 death.

"Last week, we lost an irreplaceable force", she told her fans in between sets. Thomas will give a speech at Franklin's funeral this Friday. Right on Franklin's casket were words: "Aretha Franklin, The Queen of Soul". My husband said, I know you're not going to put on Aretha's hat - that hat - and go down there.

"I think this is really doing her really good", said nurse Tremaine Townsend, 38, among the thousands who filed past Franklin's casket on Wednesday, thrilled by the four-day celebration. "For more than six decades since, every time she sang, we were all graced with a glimpse of the divine", the Obamas wrote.

"She was intertwined in all of our lives", she said, adding that her love for the singer "started with 'Respect.'" "We're just feeling good about seeing the Queen".

"Aretha may have passed on to a better place, but the gift of her music remains to inspire us all".

The funeral will cap a week of remembrances for Franklin.
