NEW YORK, NY — The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin’s homegoing has been set for Friday, August 31 in her hometown of Detroit.
The homegoing celebration will be held at Greater Grace Temple and will be limited to the Queen of Soul’s family and friends.
Public viewing is currently set to take place on Tuesday, August 28 and Wednesday, August 29 at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The late singer’s publicist, Gwendolyn Quinn, said “Franklin will be entombed at Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit, along with her father Rev. C.L. Franklin; sisters Carolyn Franklin and Erma Franklin; brother Cecil Franklin; and nephew Thomas Garrett.”
