Watch Aretha Franklin's Funeral

Detroit celebrated the life of Aretha Franklin on Friday. The "Queen of Soul" died earlier this month, at the age of 76, after battling pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type.

Over two dozen people — including heads of state, a record mogul and music legends of nearly every description — took 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.
