Fans paid their respects en masse on Tuesday (Aug 28) to United States music icon and "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin, whose body lay in a golden casket while dressed in a red dress and matching stilettos in Detroit.
Yesterday, fans strolled by the casket, some in tears; one woman blew a kiss to Franklin, who was surrounded by massive arrangements of roses of different hues.
She will have a private service on Friday, which will be streamed online and on television.

"The city of Detroit loved her, this was her home and I think they're really showing her the love that she deserved", she said.
