It was a Soul-Stiring Tribute at The Homegoing Celebration for the “Queen of Soul” Aretha Franklin yesterday in Detroit. Her family, friends, music icons, sport legends and even presidents made sure that Aretha Franklin had a funeral fit for a Queen. Fantasia Barrino came out her shoes before she started her tribute. Fantasia sang, ‘Precious Lord/Take My Hand/You’ve Got A Friend’. Jennifer Hudson stirred it up with ‘Amazing Grace’; Chaka Khan admitted she was nervous right before her performance of ‘Goin’ Up Yonder’ but the music icon and friend of Aretha Franklin proved after five decades she still has the gift! Each performer was allotted 5 minutes and Ms. Fantasia used every bit of her 5 and took an additional :18 seconds.
