Stevie Wonder was quoted saying, without God’s goodness,” “We will have never known a Queen like this, we will have never known the joy she gave to us”, after he closed out Aretha Franklin’s funeral with “The Lord’s Prayer” and “As” at Detroit’s Greater Grace Temple. Wonder opened his performance with a harmonica version of “The Lord’s Prayer” before delivering his eulogy. He further mentioned his hopes of one day collaborating with Franklin in heaven before launching into the Songs in the Key of Life favourite, with Wonder backed by the choir, brass section and other performers from the service to close out the funeral. “She did incredible music, incredible singer. She touched every genre. Every singer was influenced in some way by the way she sang, and they will forever be influenced by her because of her voice, her emotion, her sincerity is unforgettable”, Wonder stated previously the day after the singer’s passing. Jennifer Hudson, Chaka Khan and Ariana Grande were among the singers who paid musical tribute to the artist.
