  • Aretha Franklin funeral live stream Star's body in gold casket

It's unclear how she would have wanted her estate settled because the Queen of Soul died without a will, leaving that decision to state law.

Aretha Franklin's body has arrived at a Detroit church where her funeral is being held Friday.

From her stunning gold casket, to the hundreds of flowers adorning the 4,000-seat Greater Grace Temple, Aretha Franklin's homegoing celebration was a handsome production fit for a queen.

Franklin died August 16 at age 76.

He said Franklin lived "not without fear, but overcoming her fears. It just didn't seem to be something she got around to", says Don Wilson, who advised Franklin for 30 years.

She said: "It's been a great journey and He knows our every need, everywhere we are, and He gives us the remedies to everything, one way or the other". Tyler Perry noted that when she sang at the Kennedy Center she brought an audience of politicians to their feet with her voice and then "all had to bow down to the Queen of Soul".

"People don't like to face their own mortality", Zwicker says. "I love you and you are so strong @ArianaGrande".

According to papers filed in Michigan's Oakland County court, the singer was unwed at the time of her death and survived by her four sons - Clarence Franklin, Edward Franklin, Kecalf Franklin and Ted White Jr. - who are between the ages of 48 and 63. Her Father, the Reverend CL Franklin was a minister in the church where Aretha first sang her first solo as a ten-year-old in 1952. And a niece of hers has accepted the role of executor. According to intestate succession laws in mi - the state in which the singer lived most of her life, and where she died - her four children should receive equal shares of her estate. Bennett did not respond to phone and email messages seeking comment. Mayor Mike Duggan announced during the service that the city would rename the riverfront amphitheatre Chene Park to "Aretha Franklin Park".

"I know you're celebrating with your family and our neighborhood friends who are all gone. You will also meet some people that will have the best investments in the world for you", he said. She won 18 Grammy Awards and was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award.

It's estimated that the singer's wealth is in the tens of millions.

The Welsh Guards Band performed a rendition of her song, Respect, during the changing of the guard ceremony.

"I personally and sincerely apologize to Ariana and to her fans and to the whole Hispanic community", Ellis told The Associated Press.

Other assets belonging to Aretha include property in the Detroit area worth $2 million.

Floral arrangements from singers such as Barbra Streisand and Tony Bennett and from the family of the late Otis Redding, whose "Respect" Franklin transformed and made her signature song, were set up in a hallway outside the sanctuary.
