The Queen of Soul had Style

Aretha will be buried in 24-karat gold plated Promethean casket made of solid bronze. Interior finished with champagne velvet with her name embroidered in gold metallic thread. She wore four different gowns for her viewings; red on Tuesday, powder blue on Wednesday, rose gold on Thursday and gold lame today. She was dressed in a sparkling full-length gold dress with sequined heels for her final outfit. She is being honored by many politicians, sports figures, dignitaries and entertainers as a woman who was more than an entertainer, she was an inspiration for generations of Americans. The nation has celebrated her for a week and the tributes come to a close today with her funeral. The funeral is available for viewing online and on TV.

Aretha gave the world so much, seems this send off is perfect.
