Aretha Franklin, who reigned as the undisputed Queen of Soul until her death this month at the age of 76, will be buried in Detroit on Friday after a funeral that will include remarks by former U.S. President Bill Clinton and singing by Stevie Wonder.
The iconic singer, who died earlier this month of pancreatic cancer at 76, received almost every major award one could receive during her lifetime.
Fans queued in funeral finery, vibrant dresses or even tracksuits and Aretha T-shirts, oblivious to the hot sun so determined were they to be a part of history, as neighbours stood outside their homes to watch. This website is not intended for users located within the European Economic Area.
Friday's service, however, will feature those who knew and loved Franklin most, such as her childhood friend, singer Smokey Robinson, who talked to CNN soon after Franklin died about their life-long friendship. She was dressed in a sparkling full-length gold dress with sequined heels for her final outfit - the fourth outfit Franklin has worn during a week of events leading up to her funeral.
They are a nod to her 1985 hit "Freeway of Love", an anthem to her Motor City hometown, in which Franklin sang about a pink Cadillac, the vehicle company that was founded in Detroit in 1902. She heard I was there and she summoned me back. When Franklin's casket was escorted into the museum, 46-year-old Sir Diego Brazil of North Miami Beach, Florida, said he couldn't help but burst into a rendition of Amazing Grace.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson comforted actress Cicely Tyson and Franklin's family members comforted one another.

"She was a black woman in a white man's world", Sharpton said, as mourners cheered.

"It meant a lot to her and all of us", Turman said.
