Delta Sigma Theta pays tribute to soror, the Queen of Soul

Aretha Franklin Wears Bright-Red Louboutin Spike Heels in Her Gold Casket — And They Have a Hidden Meaning

"A People's Tribute to the Queen" will feature dozens of performers paying tribute to the Queen of Soul.

Taylor's concert came at the end of the first day of public visitation for the Respect hitmaker at the nearby museum, where the singer's body will lie until Thursday for hundreds of visitors to pay their respects.

Right at the front of the queue was Gale Smith, 56, a nurse who had helped to care for the singer in hospital.

Asked her thoughts about other performers, she had kind words for Adele's talent, but of Swift she said, "OK, great gowns, lovely gowns". "I started thinking about this back in January, because a bunch of family members were headed out of the country in a few months and I was anxious something might happen while everyone was away".

"Last week, we lost an irreplaceable force", she told her fans in between sets.

The second day of Franklin's public viewing was once again streamed from the rotunda of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in her hometown of Detroit, Michigan.

Franklin, 76, died of pancreatic cancer at her home in Detroit on August 16.

It also means Nixon's depiction of Cuomo as the epitome of political double-dealing has to stick. Nixon disagreed, responding, "You stood up to him about as well as he stood up to Putin".

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".

"I broke down when I seen her".

Franklin will be laid to rest on Friday, with her funeral closed to friends and family only. "She is the reason why women want to sing". You can count on a wardrobe change. Fans can pay their respects to Franklin before the private, family services commence.

"We are very appreciative to receive the support of The Word Network in ensuring that the ENTIRE celebration of life service for Ms. Aretha Franklin will be aired uninterrupted", Bishop Charles Ellis III of the Greater Grace Temple said in a statement released Wednesday.

"It's going to be very hard after all this is over and people have all gone away", Owens added. "When a lot of people got rich and famous, they left Detroit".

"When it all comes together, it's one big masterpiece", minister of music Deerico Loyd said. "Guided by God and by Aretha Franklin".
