  • R-E-S-P-E-C-T: Fans pay their last to Aretha Franklin

She came in a white 1940 LaSalle hearse - the most befitting final ride for the beloved Detroit singer.

Journalists from The Associated Press were allowed to document the casket's movement after the public viewing concluded.

Taylor Swift honored Aretha Franklin with a moment of silence during a concert in the Queen of Soul's hometown. She'll be buried on Friday, Aug. 31. The strains of Franklin's gospel recordings echoed in the airy space. I said, yes, I am. "She is the reason why women want to sing". The sorority held a private ceremony for the singer Tuesday night at the museum, as is the custom for the sorority.

"I think it's incredibly significant - she is being honored nearly like a queen at one of the most important black museums in the United States", she said. "It's a real blessing to see her".

According to Gwendolyn Quinn, a spokesperson for Franklin's family, "Aretha was fond of [Grande]". They were standing outside the museum taking video and sharing it with friends on social media.

She was suffering from pancreatic cancer and was in a grave condition from last few years.

Seeing Franklin in her casket rendered Wilson speechless. "And, of course, she was such a unique person who impacted lives, not only in Detroit, but in this country and really all over the world". "I just wanted to stand there".

But Hamilton said being a part of the home-going activities for a star of Franklin's magnitude has been quite different.

Delana Kidd said she woke up Wednesday and knew she had to go to the museum. "That's why you've got this big turnout". She couldn't be closer to the truth; women have longed to follow in the powerful footsteps of Franklin for decades, looking up to both her vocals and her entire being. "She looked at peace".

Ms Jefferson remembers lying in bed, listening to music, when her CD began to skip and repeat one particularly famous Franklin refrain: "R-E-S-P-E-C-T, find out what it means to me".

"She meant everything to Detroit, I'm telling you", said Gail Ford, 53.

But the viewings on Tuesday and Wednesday were for her fans who started lining up late Monday. "Michelle and I send our prayers and warmest sympathies to her family and all those moved by her song".
