Twitter roasts Faith Hill’s Aretha Franklin funeral performance

Twitter roasts Faith Hill’s Aretha Franklin funeral performance

Since Franklin's August 16 death at 76, Owens said a close group she described as "Aretha's angels" have "worked tirelessly" and have been guided by a single question: "What would Aretha want?"

Jackson said if anyone who leaves the funeral and isn't registered to vote "dishonors Aretha". She was "gaunt" but went on to perform for 45 minutes.

Clinton said he walked into the Cathedral of St. John the Divine on W. 110th Street and was surprised that Franklin summoned him to meet with her privately and talk a bit before the festivities. She worked her tail off to get where she was.

"Nothing sounded better to me than the way my grandma sings", Victorie Franklin said.

Vaughn Franklin, the singer's nephew, told mourners: "I am sad today because I am losing my friend, but I know the imprint you left on this world can never be removed". Aretha sang at his inauguration, just as she later did for Barack Obama, in 1993. I wanted to see what the girl was carrying out, " to a wave of laughs and claps from the crowd. "It's the key to freedom", he said.

Franklin's funeral drew big names in music and politics to Detroit on Friday.

Franklin's body arrived, in a 1940 Cadillac LaSalle hearse, more than two hours before the service was scheduled to start.

"She's healthy. Someone must have misinterpreted", said Delgado.

The line brought the majority of attendees at Greater Grace Temple to their feet for whoops and long applause, more than nearly any moment during a service that saw plenty of ovations for the many performances and speakers.

They filed past and paid their respects at Franklin's open casket, where they saw her wearing a sparkling full-length gold dress with sequined heels - her fourth and final outfit of the week.

Many high-profile figures did attend Franklin's funeral, including musicians Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder, and Hillary and Bill Clinton.

Thousands and thousands of members of the public lined up to see her one last time - at her father's New Bethel Baptist Church, and the Charles H. Wright Museum for African-American History.

A spokeswoman for the late singer also said Aretha was "fond" of 25-year-old Grande.
