Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin's casket arrives for funeral

Franklin died August 16 at age 76. While other A-list singers on the bill included Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, and Stevie Wonder, Hill was slated to sing first, in a prime slot. The Band of the Welsh Guards paid tribute to the "musical icon" who was a "huge influence and inspiration to our musicians", the Army in London posted on Facebook.

The Globe's top picks for what to see and do each weekend, in Boston and beyond.

Owens told CNN the funeral service will pay homage to Franklin's gospel roots and her love of the church.

"She gave us pride". "We're Aretha groupies. She had the voice of a generation, maybe the voice of a century".

He also took the opportunity to fire back at President Donald Trump, who had tried to claim part of Franklin's legacy as his own after her death, claiming "she worked for me" because she had performed at his failed casino. She worked her can off to get where she was.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson comforted actress Cicely Tyson and Franklin's family members comforted one another. He said they "talked all the time", the last just a couple weeks before she became too ill to speak. "Celebrate Aretha", before breaking into "What a Friend We Have in Jesus".

Our hearts and prayers are with you!"-but it's the Instagram version of that sentiment that's getting all the attention". President Trump and John McCain had feuded for years, and Trump was reportedly not invited to McCain's funeral.

He said, however, that it was a shame that the lines to mourn famous people are long, but lines to vote are so short, lamenting that Trump won MI by so few votes.

A clueless pastor joked that he thought Ariana Grande was a Taco Bell menu item following her stunning performance at Aretha Franklin's funeral on Friday. She sang "I Dreamed a Dream" at his 1993 inauguration and was back for another performance at his second inauguration in 1997, and Clinton awarded her a National Medal of Arts and Humanities in 1999.

"How you doing, baby?" she asked him. "That's the best way that I can put it". "The great [singer] Sammy Davis Jr. introduced her to the Queen Mother in a way that was spectacular, and I never forgot it".

"I've got to apologize because I have to brush up". I wanted to see what the girl was carrying out, " to a wave of laughs and claps from the crowd.

The military spokesperson called the song "a declaration from a strong confident woman who knows that she has everything". "It's the key to freedom!"

Franklin's funeral drew big names in music and politics to Detroit on Friday.

"She's healthy. Someone must have misinterpreted", said Delgado.

Family and friends were seen arriving at the Greater Grace Temple in the United States city of Detroit.

The tribute is a nod to Franklin's funky '80s tune, "Freeway of Love, " which prominently featured the vehicle in the lyrics and video.

Her coffin is to be entombed on Friday in Detroit's Woodlawn Cemetery near the remains of her father; her brother, Cecil Franklin; and her sisters, Carolyn and Erma Franklin. Her oncologist, Dr. Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute, said the 76-year-old singer's official cause of death was due to advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type.
