Aretha Franklin’s Funeral Will Be 6-1/2 Hours Long

And, that is still less time than it took Aretha Franklin to sing the National Anthem prior to the start of the Detroit Lions and the Minnesota Vikings game on November 24, 2016 in Detroit, Michigan!

RIP Aretha. Having spent so much time with the Queen of Soul during that Thanksgiving day pregame, I feel we should be on a first name basis.

105.9 kiss-fm — According to ENews, the Queen of Soul’s celebration of life will run for six and a half hours, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. local time at the Greater Grace Temple in Detroit, Michigan, on Friday. As previously reported, artists like Faith Hill, Ariana Grande, Chaka Khan, Jennifer Hudson and more will be paying tribute to the legend with thoughtful performances.

Franklin’s own music will be played during the viewing from 8:30 to 9:50 a.m. Hill will then kick off the celebrity performances at 10:40 a.m. Grande will perform at 11 a.m., followed by a performance by The Clark Sisters. Former president Bill Clinton will speak at 12:05 p.m. Various acknowledgments and reflections will be shared until 12:36 p.m. when Chaka Khan will perform.
