Aretha Franklin ‘Queen of Soul’ Laid To Rest [VIDEO]

 Aretha Franklin Laid To Rest: J.Hud, Fantasia,

Aretha Franklin was not only sent off to heaven like the Queen of Soul that she is but she was treated as actual royalty. Thousands of people – including politicians, musicians, and Hollywood celebrities alike – gathered in Detroit’s Greater Grace Temple to honor the late singer. Here are the highlights of Aretha’s homegoing service.

Her hometown of Detroit saluted her by parading 100 pink Cadillac cars in honor of her song, “Freeway of Love.”

The Queen of Soul’s body was laid to rest in a glamorous gold casket, where she made several costume changes earlier in the week. She donned Louboutins at her wake and her funeral. Nothing but the best for the Queen!

Rest In Peace, Aretha Franklin ??
