WASHINGTON, D.C. - In honor of Aretha Franklin, our Opening Act this weekend features Jennifer Hudson singing at the Queen of Soul's memorial service.

The two-time Grammy winner tribute to Franklin with a stunning rendition of "Amazing Grace."

Family, friends and the many admirers of Aretha Franklin packed Detroit's Greater Grace Temple on Friday to celebrate the life, legacy and music of the "Queen of Soul."

It was a service fit for the Queen, who died earlier this month at the age of 76 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.
The funeral was full of mourning and laughter, of rousing gospel music and soulful hymns befitting of the first woman to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, who won 18 Grammys and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, among many other honors.
