Soul legend Aretha Franklin will be laid to rest tomorrow (8/31) in her hometown of Detroit, and a number of the most powerful voices spanning many genres of music will be performing to honor her legacy.

According to Detroit Free Press, Faith Hill will be representing country music. The country star collaborated with the Queen of Soul on the 2011 duet “A Woman Falling Out of Love” and has cited the iconic singer as a large influence.

She will join Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Yolanda Adams, Shirley Caesar, The Clark Sisters, Jennifer Holliday, Marvin Sapp, Jennifer Hudson, and Fantasia as performers during the service, which will be restricted to family and friends. Before the funeral, a public, two-day open casket viewing is set to take place at the city’s Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.

Aretha died on August 16, surrounded by friends and family, at the age of 76.
