On the inside of the lid embroidered into the fabric is "Aretha Franklin the Queen of Soul".

The viewing, which is open casket, will take place from 9 a.m.to 9 p.m. Wednesday. There, they found Franklin in a polished bronze casket and a sheer baby blue dress with matching shoes, a change from the bright red outfit seen Tuesday across the world.

Lines stretched half a block down from the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History an hour before public visitation was set to begin, The Detroit News reported.

Asked her thoughts about other performers, she had kind words for Adele's talent, but of Swift she said, "OK, great gowns, attractive gowns".

Swift told a sold-out crowd at Detroit's Ford Field on Tuesday that Franklin did so much for music, women's rights and civil rights.

Aretha Franklin passed away on August 16 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Hudson, Faith Hill, Chaka Khan, Ronald Isley, Yolanda Adams, Shirley Caesar, The Clark Sisters and Marvin Sapp are among the 19 artists scheduled to perform at the family-and-friends-only service. The strains of Franklin's gospel recordings echoed in the airy space. The retired counsellor, who grew up in the same neighbourhood as Franklin and crossed paths with her in the pre-fame years, said she always appreciated that the singer remained rooted.

Hundreds of members of Delta Sigma Theta paid tribute to their soror, Aretha Franklin at a packed ceremony that capped a day of mourning in Detroit.

"I think it's going to be a very upbeat service".

"I guess she touched so many hearts, you see people crying, you see people just smiling and singing her songs".

She said the Queen of Soul was "a singer of the universe".

Her life will forever be remembered by not only her talent and greatest hits, such as "Natural Woman", "Respect", and "I Say a Little Prayer", but for her strength and kindness.
