TMZ queried Chaka Khan to see what her thoughts were on the Trump family attended Franklin's funeral.

Besides performers, speakers at the funeral include former president Bill Clinton, Clive Davis, Smokey Robinson, reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, Cicely Tyson, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.

The singer has returned to the church where her father was once the pastor, and where she first began singing in the gospel choir, before she began her road to stardom aged 14.

Franklin, known as the "Queen of Soul", died August 16 at the age of 76 at her home in Detroit after a battle with pancreatic cancer.


Aretha Franklin's body has been transported from a Detroit museum that hosted two days of public viewings of the Queen of Soul, the next step in a journey leading up to her funeral on Friday.

Page Six reports the reigning diva will receive new outfits for a third viewing on Thursday.

More than 100 pink Cadillacs, a nod to her 1985 hit "Freeway of Love", will reportedly line up outside the church. "I think there will be some up hands clapping and feet dancing".

Dancing, excitedly taking selfies and filming parts of the concert on their cell phones, the evening was a chance for Detroit to celebrate the life and legacy of a towering figure regarded as local royalty. On Monday, she wore a lace red dress with matching Christian Louboutin leather pumps, switching into a blue sparkly dress with open-toed silver shoes on Tuesday.
