Queen Of Soul To Sing At World Series In Motown

DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Coney dogs, cars, baseball fields covered in crisp fall leaves — what’s more Motown than that?

Well, maybe one thing: Aretha Franklin.

The Queen of Soul will sing the national anthem at World Series Game 5 in Detroit’s Comerica Park as the Tigers host the San Francisco Giants, according  to USA Today.

This is Franklin’s second appearance at a game; she opened game three of the American League Championship Series when the Tigers hosted the Texas Rangers.

Marvin Winans, a member of Detroit’s favorite gospel singing family, will take the mound before game three in Detroit, per USA Today.
