She said: "At that time we shared the fact that we had the same disease".

Bishop Charles Ellis III of Greater Grace knows well of the boldface guest list and surrounding pomp and circumstance, but he has a higher mission in mind for the service that may well exceed five hours.

Over a hundred pink Cadillacs will line the route to Aretha Franklin's funeral and stand honor guard along Seven Mile outside of the church.

Victorie Franklin took the stage to praise her "fierce" grandmother.

Some fans were admitted into the church to sit behind Franklin's family. Watching Aretha perform it and drive Obama to tears in a you tube video and watching King in the stands completely lose it as the song she sang is delivered with such greatness by Aretha King is what mesmerizing videos are made of.

Among Franklin's more tangible assets are several pieces of property in the Detroit area that according to tax assessors' estimates are worth at least $2 million, with a market value that could easily be twice that. But she also stayed close to home, went shopping with family, and whipped up peach cobbler and other dishes with friends and relatives. "The love she had for her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins knew no bounds". Mayor Mike Duggan announced during the service Friday that the city would rename the riverfront amphitheater Chene Park to "Aretha Franklin Park". Among her top hits, "Think" is the only one that she composed.

The "superwoman" singer added that due to early detection she was able to survive cancer.

Aretha Franklin's friend Ron Moten, a MI businessman, gave the four sons some guidance in his speech at Friday's funeral. "We really celebrate because we really recognize that those we call the dearly departed, they wouldn't want for us to cry and be sad and sorrowful".

The church's choir sang Franklin's "Say a Little Prayer" and her version of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" as mourners arrived.

"I just loved her", Clinton continued. The Rev. Al Sharpton read a statement from former President Barack Obama, who wrote that Franklin's "work reflected the very best of the American story".
