Los Angeles - Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Hudson and country singer Faith Hill will sing at the funeral of Aretha Franklin in Detroit next week, her publicist said on Thursday.
They will be joined by R&B singers Chaka Khan, Ron Isley, Fantasia and Yolanda Adams at the funeral for the late Queen of Soul, publicist Gwendolyn Quinn said in a statement.
Franklin, 76, died last week of pancreatic cancer in her Detroit home. Her Aug. 31 funeral will be held at Detroit's 4,000-seat Greater Grace Temple, which was the venue for the 2005 funeral of civil rights activist Rosa Parks.
The funeral will be limited to family, friends, dignitaries and special guests.
Thousands of members of the public are expected to pay their respects to Franklin during three days of viewing of her casket at Detroit's Museum of African-American History, and at the New Bethel Baptist Church where a teenaged Franklin sang in the gospel choir.
