Fans will be able to pay their respects to Aretha Franklin during a public viewing at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, ET confirms. The Queen of Soul will lie in state from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Aug. 28 and 29.
Franklin’s funeral, which will be held at 10 a.m. on Aug. 31 at Detroit’s Greater Grace Temple, will be limited to just family and friends. She will then be entombed at Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit, alongside her father, Rev. C.L. Franklin; brother Cecil Franklin; sisters Carolyn Franklin and Erma Franklin; and nephew, Thomas Garrett.
Franklin died at the age of 76 on Thursday, surrounded by loved ones at her home in Detroit, Michigan. The legendary singer’s oncologist, Dr. Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute, said that her official cause of death was due to advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type.
