Taylor Swift Holds Moment of Silence for Aretha Franklin at Detroit Concert

An all-star lineup that includes Stevie Wonder, Faith Hill, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, Shirley Caesar and many more will perform at Aretha Franklin's funeral next week.

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.

The body of the 76-year-old, who died of pancreatic cancer almost two weeks ago, will be on public view on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Charles H Wright Museum of African American History.

Taylor Swift held a moment of silence in remembrance of the late Aretha Franklin at her Tuesday night concert in Detroit - Franklin's hometown.

Ellis grew up in Detroit with the Franklin family, and he will oversee her funeral on Friday.

"She respected them - she understood that if it were not for them, she wouldn't be who she is", she said. She helped us feel more connected to each other, more hopeful, more human.

Of course, no crime on True Detective is ever what it seems - so the case at hand is hardly one just centered on missing children. The second season of " True Detective " starred Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, and Vince Vaughn.

"Last week we lost an irreplaceable force", the singer said.

Aretha is set to be buried on Friday at the Greater Grace Temple and will be attended by family and friends only.

"We really haven't not had much of an opportunity to have private moments", Owens said.

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

The pop star then called for the lights to be cut and a moment of silence before adding, "We love you Aretha".

"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. "Numerous people you see are here because they were blessed by her big heart and her desire to reach beyond the boundaries of her own success and touch others". "She was a woman that endured to let people know you can make it no matter what you go through".
