Aretha Franklin Funeral Details of Service Including Superstar Guest List Revealed

Taking to Twitter, a British Army spokesperson said: "Respect for others underpins all we do in the British Army so it was no surprise that the Welsh Guards Band paid tribute to musical icon and inspiration Aretha Franklin at Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace today". The choir of angels now have the greatest voice of all time to lead, praise and join in to sing before Jesus. "She lived with power, not without weakness, but overcoming her weaknesses", Clinton said.

Franklin had continued to tour and record intermittently through her final year. Clad in all black with silver jewelry, Hill had the crowd on their feet during her performance.

When asked about the President back in 1994, she described Clinton as "very down to earth, very decent", adding he was "someone who is really trying to pull it off, to get a true democracy". "She represented the best in our community".

French actor Gerard Depardieu denies rape allegations
Depardieu has appeared in 200 films over six decades and holds a rare position as a French actor who is known in Hollywood. A lawyer for Depardieu told AFP that the actor "absolutely denies any attack, any rape".

"My husband said, 'Wouldn't it be awesome if we could have a sea of pink Cadillacs parked on Seven Mile Road to greet Ms. Aretha Franklin as she arrives?' " she told NPR.

"[He said] 'We have the Duke of Ellington, the Count of Bassey, and ladies and gentlemen I bring you the Queen of Soul'". She lived with faith - not without failure, but overcoming her failures. She stood on the front lines of the civil rights movement, where her music served as a frequent anthem.

Bush's statement, read by Franklin friend Barbara Sampson, called Franklin "a woman of achievement with a deep character and a loving heart" who made "lasting contributions to American music with her gospel-inspired style and distinctive voice". Then she went out into this setting and all these people who loved her were awestruck and said, 'Can you believe she showed up?' She sang not one song, not two songs, not three songs. "Aretha never took orders from nobody but God!" He ended by playing her song "Think" on his phone. She will be performing the classic gospel song, "I'm Going Up Yonder". For three days she lay in a golden, open-casket, wearing a different outfit each day - red on Tuesday, blue on Wednesday, rose gold on Thursday and a golden sparkling dress for her funeral on Friday.
