The home going celebration for the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is set for Friday August 31st, at Greater Grace Temple in Detroit, Michigan.

According to Click on Detroit, there will be approximately 4,000 dignitaries, musicians, friends and family members who will say goodbye to R&B royalty.

As a special treat, pink Cadillac owners will have their vehicles line up along Seven Mile Road near the church in solidarity of the hit single “Freeway of Love” and they will also be permitted to attend the funeral per the First Lady Crisette Ellis.

Bishop Charles Ellis says this will be one of the biggest funerals Detroit has ever seen and rightfully so because the list of performers is a “Who’s Who” of talented singers who will pay respects to the Franklin.

The list of singers includes Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, Shirley Caesar, Ron Isley, Chaka Khan, Yolanda Adams, Jennifer Holiday, Marvin Sapp, the Clark Sisters, and Vanessa Bell Armstrong.
