More 100 pink Cadillacs will be on hand for Aretha Franklin's funeral on Friday, Aug. 31, according to WXYZ.

As mourners descend on Detroit, Mich.to pay their final respects to Aretha Franklin, those passing through for her viewing are seeing the Queen of Soul in her casket dressed in all red.

People wait in line outside the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History where the late singer Aretha Franklin will lie in state for two days of public viewing in Detroit, Michigan, U.S. on August 28, 2018.

The private ceremony honoring Franklin on Friday will be held at Greater Grace Temple in Detroit.

The announced performers include Stevie Wonder, Faith Hill, Ronald Isley, Chaka Khan, Shirley Caesar, Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson, Yolanda Adams, and Franklin's son, Edward.

"After all she gave to the world, I felt we needed to give her an appropriate send-off that would match her legacy", she said. But she represented and pushed for both in ways big and small - none, perhaps, more prominently or simultaneously as her mold-breaking take on the Otis Redding song, "Respect".

The procession into the Ford Motor Rotunda lasted more than ten minutes, and the overflow crowd of more than 1,000 filled the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.

New Bethel Baptist Church will host its viewing from noon to 4 p.m.

The singer was also aware that to pull off such an event, it would require a well-known artist to draw attendees, and naturally, Paul wanted it to be Franklin.

Swanson, whose family has been in the funeral services business for 60 years, said they were "honored to be able to help", as they did when Franklin lost her dad.

FANS lined up overnight to pay their respects to the late Aretha Franklin and got a glimpse of the legendary singer as she lay in her gleaming gold casket wearing a red cocktail dress and matching shiny red stilettos Tuesday.

"God didn't make a better singer. and there isn't a better casket", Swanson said.

"If you ever received flowers from my aunt they would be big, handsome arrangements", Owens said. "And she said, 'Hi, Denise, this is Aretha Franklin'". "There isn't another Aretha Franklin".
