Aretha Franklin Detroit Viewing Funeral

When Aretha Franklin passed away last week, tributes promptly poured in from fans of all kinds, famous, presidential, and otherwise. Now, everyone will have the chance to pay their respects to the late Queen of Soul when her body is laid in repose later this month.

An open casket viewing for the iconic singer will be held in her hometown of Detroit on August 28th and 29th. From 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. each day, admirers can visit Franklin at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, one of her favorite spots to visit in Motown.

A private funeral, limited to friends and family, will take place on August 31st.
