WOW!! Watch: ‘A People’s Tribute to the Queen’ — Aretha Franklin’s Pre-Funeral Concert [Live Stream]

A tribute concert to the Queen of Soul is being held Thursday evening in Detroit, part of a four-day memorial that will end with Aretha Franklin’s private funeral on Friday at the city’s Greater Grace Temple.

More than 40 artists will appear throughout Aretha’s funeral including Gladys Knight, the Four Tops, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Raheem DeVaughn, Johnny Gill and Angie Stone, accompanied by the Ralphe Armstrong Band and Kern Brantley Band, who have performed with Aretha Franklin before.

Tickets for the tribute sold out in less than six minutes, according to the Detroit Free Press — but if you’re not in Detroit, you can watch a live stream of the show below.

Following Thursday’s tribute concert, Aretha will be laid to rest on Friday during a six-and-a-half-hour-long funeral.
