Aretha Franklin's Funeral Arrangements Revealed

Aretha Franklin’s funeral arrangements have been revealed. According to The Detroit Free Press, the Queen of Soul will be honored with a four-date celebration of life, which will include multiple events and performances. Franklin will be laid to rest at Detroit’s Woodlawn Cemetery following her August 31st funeral service at Greater Grace Temple. 

The funeral will follow an open casket public viewing on August 28th and 29th at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, where her body will lie in state. The viewing will be held from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. on both days. 

The funeral will be limited to family members, friends and selected guests. 

According to local news channel, WDIV-4, organizers are said to be working on a “musical tribute with major recording artists,” but the venue has not been confirmed just yet. 

In other news, Fox News dropped the ball after using a photo of Patti LaBelle, instead of Aretha Franklin, when paying tribute to the late singer. The network featured a graphic of Franklin, with a performance photo of LaBelle in the background. Fox News has since apologized for their error. According to The Jasmine Brand, Fox News Vice President, Media Desk Jessica Santostefano, said, “We sincerely apologize to Aretha Franklin’s family and friends.”

As previously reported, Aretha Franklin died on Thursday (August 16th) after suffering from pancreatic cancer.

Kenny Chesney Sets Personal Best, Becomes Biggest-Seller At MetLife Stadium

Bad weather didn't do anything to stop Kenny Chesney and his thousands of fans gathered at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Saturday (August 18th). An evacuation and 45-minute storm delay still managed to keep 58,642 patient fans returning to their seats to witness the superstar's Trip Around The Sun tour stop with Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion and Brandon Lay.

Kenny said, “Sometimes that waiting really fires you up. You’re ready to go, and then it builds, and builds. It doesn’t hurt that the crowds in East Rutherford are such passionate, dig deep music fans. This was our sixth time. They were so loud, so in the moment, I loved listening to them sing these songs back to us.”

The show gave Kenny his own best attendance number, and he became the biggest ticket-seller at MetLife Stadium. He also became the only country artist in the Meadowlands/MetLife Top 10 concert draws of all time: joining Bruce Springsteen, the Grateful Dead, Bon Jovi, U2, the Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews Band, and Billy Joel.

The MetLife show was the last Trip Around The Sun stadium date for Thomas and Old Dominion. Kenny closes out the tour this Saturday (August 25th) with the second of two shows at Boston's Gillette Stadium with special guests Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne and Brandon Lay.
