Aretha Franklin's emotional public viewing

She asked a sold-out crowd at Ford Field to honor Franklin with a moment of silence. She was one of those people where no matter what you said, no matter what glowing positive thing you said about her, it would be an understatement.

"Last week we lost an irreplaceable force", she told fans, according to outlets. She added that if she could attend the viewings, she would bring her 8-year-old daughter, Shakeila, who loves singing along to Aretha Franklin's videos.

Franklin will lie in repose at the museum for another day-long public viewing today. Swift said words could never describe how many things Franklin did that made the world a better place.

The singer, who passed away at the age of just 76, was surrounded by roses in shades of lilac and pink, arranged in enormous displays similar to those she preferred to send loved ones. She sang at his funeral after he was assassinated in 1968, as well as at the inaugurations of presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, the country's first African American head of state.

Grande said at the time: "I met her a few times".

"She's the queen", said Melissa Howard, who flew from Texas on Monday to pay her respects.

Born in the segregated American South in Memphis, Tennessee, she moved to Detroit with her prominent Baptist preacher and civil rights activist father. Gold thread spelled out Aretha Franklin, The Queen Of Soulin the casket's lining.

"I broke down when I seen her".

"It was nothing for Miss Franklin to call us", she said. "I would want my daughter to know of the people like Aretha Franklin - to be able to listen to that voice. and hear that there is something special about it".
