Franklin dressed in blue for last public viewing

Fans mourn Aretha Franklin at gospel-infused public viewing

Aretha Franklin's casket arrives at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit on Tuesday

During her sold-out show at Detroit's Ford Field Tuesday night, the Reputation singer asked the crowd to pay tribute to the music icon, who passed away this month of pancreatic cancer, with a moment of silence.

Thousands of more fans lined up outside the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, where Franklin's 24-karat-gold-plated casket was wheeled into early in the morning. The scheduled speakers include former President Bill Clinton, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton. "She never talked about death".

"What you see with her is what you get", Owens said.
