Plans for Etta James' Funeral Announced

R&B great Etta James, who passed away last Friday from leukemia, will be laid to rest on Saturday after a public viewing on Friday night.

James' family announced on Tuesday that there will be a public viewing on Friday night from 5 to 10 PM at the Manchester Chapel of the Inglewood Cemetery Mortuary in Inglewood, CA.

A private funeral for "immediate family and friends" will be held on Saturday at 10 AM at Greater Bethany Community Church City of Refuge in Gardena, CA. Security is expected to be on hand and there will be "limited media access." The Reverend Al Sharpton will present the eulogy and there will be performances by a number of artists; however, they have not been named.

The family has asked that donations be directed to the Rhythm and Blues Foundation.
