There's no hard timeline on how the day will unfold, but fans from around the world will be able to watch the funeral of soul music icon Aretha Franklin, who passed away on August 16 at the age of 76.
Parts of Franklin's funeral — set for August 31 in her hometown of Detroit — will be aired by CNN and Fox News, but the cermony will also be livestreamed by the Associated Press, which means it's likely to be picked up by online media outlets around the globe.
Speakers include former President Bill Clinton, Smokey Robinson, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Clive Davis, while musical performers include Steve Wonder, Ronald Isley, Chaka Khan, Faith Hill and Jennifer Hudson, who was handpicked by Franklin for her upcoming biopic.
Franklin was first woman to be inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and had been in poor health as of late. Fans spent the last week of her life paying tribute and sending prayers to her after complications from pancreatic cancer landed Franklin in hospice care.
