T. D. Jakes Ministries spokeswoman Regina Lewis told FOX 4 News Bishop Jakes is looking forward to being a part of the home-going ceremony and celebration.

Having produced for Franklin a half dozen times, he said he went to her with the idea for Detroit Music Weekend in November 2016 and she loved it.

Mourners gather to Charles H. Wright Museum to pay their "Respect" to the Queen of Soul.

An official photo of Franklin laying in her casket, clad in crimson and surrounded by pink flowers, was released for fans who can not make it to Detroit to say farewell.

Former President Bill Clinton, lifelong friend Smokey Robinson, Rev. Jesse Jackson, and recording mogul Clive Davis are among a list of high-profile speakers who plan to attend a private funeral service for Franklin, which starts at 10 a.m.at Greater Grace Temple, 23500 W. Seven Mile Road, Detroit.

As the world continues to say goodbye to Franklin, who died of pancreatic cancer, the sadness still felt particularly heavy for Thimes, who launched the Mildred Thimes Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer in honor of her mother in 1997.

Melissa Howard flew to Detroit from Austin, Texas, Monday, to be sure she secured her place in line.




While she was born in Memphis, Tennessee, Franklin is more closely identified with the city of Detroit, where she lived most of her life.

A family is photographed beneath a mural in tribute to the late singer Aretha Franklin outside the New Bethel Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan.

They queued down the street and around the block before the museum opened with a steady flow trickling inside by mid-morning, an AFP reporter said.

Paul said it turns out she was ill.

Stuart Popp, who drove from Plymouth, Michigan in his pink 1956 Cadillac Grand Seville, was greeted by the crowd singing Franklin's hit, "Freeway of Love".

Owens said she began planning for this week's festivities earlier this year.

"If you ever received flowers from my aunt they would be big, lovely arrangements", Owens said. Franklin also struggled with alcoholism and chain smoking. Franklin then married her second husband, actor Glynn Turmann, in 1978 at her father's church which lasted for six years.
