Also slated to perform are Ron Isley, Chaka Khan, Yolanda Adams, Jennifer Holliday and Aretha Franklin's son, Edward Franklin.
Family, friends and famous figures will bid farewell to the Queen of Soul Friday in Detroit.
The world lost a queen and a bit of its soul with the passing of Aretha Franklin. She wore a baby blue dress on Wednesday and a rose gold gown for a viewing Thursday at the Detroit church where her father was the longtime pastor.
The street outside Greater Grace was filled Friday morning with pink Cadillacs - a nod to Franklin's funky '80s tune, "Freeway of Love", which prominently featured the auto in the lyrics and video.
The famed basketball player will join such personalities as Detroit Pistons Isaiah Thomas, Bill Clinton, singer Smokey Robinson, Rev. Jesse Jackson, and actress Cicely Tyson.
Aretha Franklin's funeral will take place in her hometown of Detroit on Friday at the Greater Grace Temple - the same church where Franklin sang at Rosa Parks' funeral in 2005.
Arizona Republicans Have Made Their Loyalties Clear - They Choose Trump Over McCain
Our words are too often cheap and imminently forgettable but John McCain paid our freight with his body and with his soul. McCain was a frequent Trump critic and his family has said he did not want the president to attend his funeral.
The tribute is a nod to Franklin's funky '80s tune, Freeway of Love, which prominently featured the auto in the lyrics and video.
Her funeral will be held at Greater Grace Temple, with Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande said to be performing. He adds the "dearly departed" want a celebration to mark their transition "from this life to a better one".
The star gave her final performance last November at a gala in NY held in aid of the Elton John Aids Foundation.
Since Franklin's August 16 death at 76, Owens said a close group she described as "Aretha's angels" have "worked tirelessly" and have been guided by a single question: 'What would Aretha want?'
Earlier in the week, CNN reported that a niece of Aretha's showed up with burgers, water and t-shirts for fans queuing to see the Queen Of Soul.
