Aretha Franklin’s casket arrived earlier today for a public viewing in Detroit where the Queen of Soul will be in state for a couple of days. Long lines for viewing have already started to form.

Via TMZ, “Crowds swarmed and lines stretched around the bloating of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History Tuesday morning to catch a glimpse of Aretha and pay last respects to the legendary singer. Her body was on display in an open casket… surrounded by a beautiful floral arrangement.” There will be several celebrities performing at Aretha’s memorial Thursday.

May the ‘Queen of Soul’ Rest In Peace, her music and great vibes will be truly missed.
