ARETHA FRANKLIN, who died earlier this month age 76, was remembered by fans today at a memorial service held at Detroit’s Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.
The star who paved the way for many of today’s artists with her groundbreaking and unique voice was carried in a gold casket that is reserved for queens like in ancient times.
Aretha was born in 1942 in Memphis, Tennessee and was the fourth of five children. She is survived by her four sons, Ted, Kecalf, Edward and Clarence. There was a special hearse that Franklin was driven in that awed the crowds.
The hearse arrived early Tuesday. A group of pallbearers wearing dark suits and white gloves escorted the casket inside the museum.
