Aretha Franklin Dressed in Blue During 2nd Viewing in Michigan
The Queen of Soul died on Aug. 16.
On the second day of her public viewing, Aretha Franklin underwent an outfit change, wearing a pastel blue dress instead.
Franklin, who died on Aug. 16 at 76 following a battle with cancer, is lying in repose at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit, Michigan, where thousands of fans have stopped by to honor the late singer.
On Tuesday, Franklin was dressed in red, a nod to her honorary membership in the predominantly African American sorority Delta Sigma Theta. Crimson is the organization's color.
Nearly 1,000 members of the sorority, all clad in black, assembled in the rotunda of the museum Tuesday evening for what's called the Omega Omega ceremony, a final rite given to recently passed members.
Family and close friends sat in the front row to watch the ceremony, at times appearing emotional.
Franklin's funeral is scheduled for Friday at Greater Grace Temple.
