THE Aretha Franklin memorial service will have 23 acts perform! ALL of the acts are doing so out of their own pockets to boot. They have to pay air, ground and hotel expenses for themselves and their entourages. The list of performers are listed below.
The Four Tops, Gladys Knight, Johnny Gill, Ron Isley, Kiki Sheard, Kurt Carr, Jean Carne, Doug Carn, Ronnie McNeir, L.J. Reynolds, Tasha Page-Lockhart, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dr. Bobby Jones, Jenifer Lewis, George Faison, Angie Stone, Raheem DeVaughn, Gracie Franklin, Eddie Franklin, Victorie Franklin, Santita Jackson, Ralphe Armstrong Band, Kern Brantley Band
Dr. Louis Farrakhan will be attending as a guest. The memorial service will be held in Detroit Aug 30 at the Chene Park Amphitheater. It's gonna be lit and I'm quite sure the Queen of Soul would have it no other way. RIP Aretha Franklin.
