EXCLUSIVE

Aretha Franklin‘s family knows a massive turnout’s expected to honor the legendary singer — and a church just won’t cut it — so they’ll hold her public viewing at a much larger venue … TMZ has learned. 

Sources close to the family tell us … the memorial for the Queen of Soul will be held at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit. We’re told the location was chosen to accommodate the thousands expected to show up. Aretha was also a frequent visitor.
