Also slated to perform are Ron Isley, Chaka Khan, Yolanda Adams, Jennifer Holliday and Aretha Franklin's son, Edward Franklin.
Organizers of Aretha Franklin's funeral insist today will be a "spiritual" and not a "concert, show or awards production". She wore a baby blue dress on Wednesday and a rose gold gown for a viewing Thursday at the Detroit church where her father was the longtime pastor. A pink Cadillac, as referenced in her song, "Freeway of Love", was on display outside the museum in tribute. Aretha Franklin's funeral will take place at 10:00 A.M. ET from the Greater Grace Temple in Detroit, Michigan.
The tribute is a nod to Franklin's funky '80s tune, Freeway of Love, which prominently featured the vehicle in the lyrics and video.
Former president Bill Clinton is among those scheduled to speak, while Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama have sent a letter that will be read by Rev. Al Sharpton.
Other acts includeFaith Hill, who will sing "What a Friend We Have in Jesus", Stevie Wonder's rendition of "The Lords Prayer", and Fantasia Barrino, who will perform "Precious Lord". Their performances are expected to honor Franklin's strong gospel roots.
