Aretha Franklin performs at the Lincoln Memorial for President Clinton's inaugural gala on January 17, 1993.

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

More than 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.
