People Can't Get Over Pete Davidson Attending Aretha Franklin's Funeral

Aretha Franklin Funeral Details of Service Including Superstar Guest List Revealed

Also slated to perform are Ron Isley, Chaka Khan, Yolanda Adams, Jennifer Holliday and Aretha Franklin's son, Edward Franklin.

The Queen of Soul, who died on August 16 from pancreatic cancer at the age of 76, is being honored for more than six hours with 18 performers and more than 15 speakers.

The Rev Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan and former president Bill Clinton made quite the lineup next to each other on the dais in front of a gospel choir belting out an extended version of Marvelous.

Aretha Franklin's funeral will take place on Friday starting at 10 a.m. ET.

Details have emerged about Aretha Franklin's star-studded funeral, which is set for Friday.

Faith Hill gave the opening musical performance, singing her own rendition of "What a Friend We Have in Jesus", while Ariana Grande - a last-minute addition to the program - performed the song "Natural Woman".

"This is not the Grammys, this is not the Oscars, this is church, and we're going to send her out just as she came in", Ellis said to the news outlet.

I think the two teams can be compared in this way; both of them have a very fast transition, with very fast players up front. Hughton added: "It's a poor goal, we try and move on from that as quickly as possible".

As the last of Franklin's family members took their seat, Bishop Charles H. Ellis III, who is officiating the service, asked the congregation to stand and applaud them. The Pink Cadillacs outside refer to a Franklin hit from the 1980s, "Freeway of Love". "She worked for us".

The Aretha Franklin Choir and the Aretha Franklin Celebration Choir are also on the program.

Isiah Thomas, the former Detroit Pistons player and a friend of Franklin's, told CNN he could hardly believe the day had arrived to say goodbye.

"There are some girls who haven't been born yet. who will be inspired by Aretha", he said. 'We used to talk about that - we saw a lot of soldiers go'.

Owens said Franklin loved fiercely and was the family's matriarch.

Sabrina Owens, Franklin's niece, said she started putting thoughts to paper about events earlier this year as her aunt's health failed.

While most of the funeral plans have been for public benefit as of yet, Owens said Friday's funeral is more a chance for Franklin's family to grieve privately. "She was a full-service queen".
