Aretha Franklin Funeral Celebration



Detroit's Greater Grace Temple was packed with her family and friends, who took their spots among star-studded funeral-goers that included Franklin's fellow musicians, famous actors, religious leaders and politicians, including a former US President.

"She gave us pride," the Rev. Al Sharpton said during his remembrance. "And she gave us a regal bar to reach, and that's why we're all here.

"We don't all agree on everything," he said. "But we agree on Aretha."
