Aretha Franklin's funeral will be 6 1/2 hours long: Here's everyone performing

Aretha Franklin is getting a send off worthy of her incredible life and legacy. 

The Queen of Soul's celebration of life will run for six and a half hours, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. local time at the Greater Grace Temple in Detroit, Michigan, on Friday. As previously reported, artists like Faith Hill, Ariana Grande, Chaka Khan, Jennifer Hudson and more will be paying tribute to the legend with thoughtful performances. 

Franklin's own music will be played during the viewing from 8:30 to 9:50 a.m. Hill will then kick off the celebrity performances at 10:40 a.m. Grande will perform at 11 a.m., followed by a performance by The Clark Sisters. Former president Bill Clinton will speak at 12:05 p.m. Various acknowledgments and reflections will be shared until 12:36 p.m. when Chaka Khan will perform. 

From 1:15 to 1:30 p.m., stars like Tyler Perry, Cicely Tyson, Clive Davis and Smokey Robinson will share their personal reflections on Franklin's life. Hudson will perform a Sermonic Selection at 2 p.m., before Stevie Wonder's musical tribute at 2:35 p.m. 

Bishop Charles H. Ellis, III, pastor of Greater Grace Temple, will serve as Officiant with the Rev. Robert Smith Jr., Pastor of New Bethel Baptist Church in Detroit, as Co-Officiant for the service. 

In an interview with ET's Nischelle Turner, Ellis said the 4,000-seat church will be filled "wall to wall." "It's wonderful to live your life that when you are no longer here -- that individuals feel you made that great impression on them, you meant that much to them, that they will do anything they can to move heaven and earth just to get where you are just to pay respects," he said. "That's an awesome thing."
