Detroit will celebrate the life of Aretha Franklin on Friday, August 31st at 10 a.m. EST.

Over two dozen people -- including heads of state, a record mogul, and music legends of nearly every description -- will take the stage of the Greater Grace Temple to speak, sing and pray in honor of the gift that Franklin so readily shared with the world.
