Activists, politicians, stars, family and fans are lining up to
pay tribute to the Queen of Soul

and power anthems with civil rights activism and feminism.
President Bill Clinton, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Jennifer Hudson, Faith Hill and Ariana Grande are the few of the high octane names that will pay tribute to Franklin at her Aug. 31 Detroit send off.
