Vigil held at Detroit church for Aretha Franklin
DETROIT (AP) — People are praying for Aretha Franklin in the Detroit church where her father was once a pastor.
The special vigil at New Bethel Baptist Church began before dawn Wednesday.
The prayers come one day after Stevie Wonder visited the ailing Queen of Soul at her home. Franklin's ex-husband, actor Glynn Turman, also visited Franklin, who is seriously ill.
Correction: People-Aretha Franklin story
NEW YORK (AP) — In a story Aug. 14 about Stevie Wonder and Rev. Jesse Jackson visiting Aretha Franklin at her home, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Jackson visited Franklin on Tuesday. Jackson was originally scheduled to visit Tuesday but later rescheduled for Wednesday.
