Aretha Franklin’s Detroit Funeral Will Be Six Hours Long, Maybe More
Wondering why they didn't schedule in a lunch break...
...cuz there's no WAY that this only goes til 3. My bets are on 5 PM.
The funeral program for Aretha Franklin has been announced, and it's a doozy. The private service (which will be live-streamed on TV and the internet if you want to watch) at Greater Grace Temple tomorrow will begin at 9:30 AM with the processional starting at 10 AM.
The program will then move on to prayers, and speakers include former Attorney General Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Cicely Tyson, Clive Davis, former President Bill Clinton, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and more.
Peppered in will be musical performances by Ariana Grande, Stevie Wonder, Faith Hill, Chaka Khan, Jennifer Hudson and others.
Any bets on how long it goes? Some of the speakers can be pretty long-winded...unless Swanson Funeral Home is gonna pull them off when their time is up. We're gonna go with 5 PM.
