Fans can watch Aretha Franklin funeral

R-E-S-P-E-C-T: Fans pay their last to Aretha Franklin

The legendary Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, recorded a song in 2007 that has finally been released on Wednesday - hear it here.

Aretha Franklin fans have lined up to pay their respects to the deceased music legend during the second and final day of public visitation services in Detroit.

Many others set up shop, selling memorabilia including T-shirts, pins, photos, and booklets with a CD of the 18-time Grammy champ's most prominent hits.

Lauren Mills, 74, said her late husband proposed to her at a Detroit-area Franklin concert in 1977.

Ariana Grande has been added to the list of singers who are scheduled to perform at the funeral, CNN reported.

The 76-year-old singer, beloved by millions around the world, died of cancer on August 16, closing the curtain on a glittering six-decade career that made her one of America's most celebrated artists. But this week that situation was remedied when the 2007 recording of Franklin's rousing, political anthem "Stand Up For Yourself" was released online by the American Association of Retired People. "I'm OK - I'm going to rest now, '" Mills said.

Swift told a sold-out crowd at Detroit's Ford Field on Tuesday that Franklin did so much for music, women's rights and civil rights. "As they saw the handwriting on the wall and that shade coming down on her life, they began to make some decisions on where her service might be", he said.

She said the singer looked lovely while lying in repose: "I don't know about red yesterday".

"I think it's incredibly significant - she is being honored nearly like a queen at one of the most important black museums in the United States", she said.

"I think this is really doing her really good", said nurse Tremaine Townsend, 38, among the thousands who filed past Franklin's casket on Wednesday, thrilled by the four-day celebration.

Dressed in red ruffles and stiletto heels at Tuesday's memorial, the Queen of Soul saved a costume change for Wednesday.
