Aretha Franklin’s funeral will be spread across four days in Detroit, with a viewing open to members of the public.
The music icon died on Thursday, August 16, 2018 from pancreatic cancer at the age of 76.
A public viewing for the Queen of Soul will be held from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Aug. 28 and Aug. 29 at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, which Franklin frequently visited.
The service, which will only be open to family and friends, will take place on Aug. 31 at the Greater Grace Temple.
Franklin will be entombed at Detroit’s Woodlawn Cemetery — alongside her father, Rev. C.L. Franklin, brother Cecil Franklin, sisters Carolyn and Erma Franklin and nephew Thomas Garrett.
Organizers are also working on a tribute performance with big-name artists, according to reports.
