Gladys Knight ‘reveals she has cancer at Aretha Franklin’s funeral’

(Khan is every woman, but that doesn't mean she has to know every lyric!) Franklin's lengthy ceremony also featured performances from Ariana Grande, Fantasia, Faith Hill, The Clark Sisters, and more.

In the clip below you can see Ariana grace the stage in a black dress and the second she starts her vocals, Bill can be seen grinning the whole way through her set.

The private ceremony will be live streamed via Associated Press' website and YouTube page to give fans a chance to say goodbye to the legendary soul singer.

"After all she gave to the world, I felt we needed to give her an appropriate send-off that would match her legacy", Owens said.

Franklin performed at Clinton's 1993 presidential inauguration.

"She was only about four years older than me, five years older than Hillary, so when we're getting out of college was when she finally got her big breakthroughs", Clinton said.

He revealed that both he and his wife, Hillary Clinton were "groupies" of Franklin during their own college years and ended his tribute by playing Franklin's song, "Think", on his iPhone. But Twitter really erupted once people got a good look at what she was wearing, and they had positive and negative things to say about her appearance. An arrangement from singer Sam Moore included a card that read, "You know I always adored and loved you to bits and pieces". She worked her can off to get where she was.

The presence of Hollywood stars such as Tyler Perry and Cicely Tyson, who will also speak, are a nod to Franklin's contributions on screen and off in films such as "The Blues Brothers".

The city has treated her death as the passing of royalty, with Franklin's body laying in repose in the grand rotunda of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History for two days of public visitation earlier this week.

Aretha Franklin's funeral is honoring the Queen of Soul with pink Cadillacs and musical tributes galore. 'I didn't want her to suffer. Her last album, A Brand New Me, was released in November 2017, which paired archival vocal recordings for Atlantic Records with new orchestral arrangements by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

"She lived with courage".

On the show, Grande recounted her memories of meeting Franklin, saying, "I met her a few times". "This is not a concert, this is not a show, this is not an awards production".
