According to the late singer’s publicists, Gwendolyn Quinn, the funeral will be held at the Greater Grace Temple. It will only be open to Aretha’s family and friends.

The public will be able to view Aretha between August 28 and 29 at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. Time is 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Aretha will be buried at the Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit, alongside her father Rev. C.L. Franklin; sisters Carolyn Franklin and Erma Franklin; brother Cecil Franklin; and nephew Thomas Garrett.
