Chaka Khan, Ariana Grande and Smokey Robinson were among those who performed and paid tribute during the six-hour service.
The church's choir sang Franklin's "Say a Little Prayer" and her version of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" as mourners arrived.
Her coffin is to be entombed on Friday in Detroit's Woodlawn Cemetery near the remains of her father; her brother, Cecil Franklin; and her sisters, Carolyn and Erma Franklin. The Lord tells us where we are going and tells us when we are coming. During her career, Franklin won 18 Grammys, including a lifetime achievement award in 1994, and was also the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Many in the pews ignored repeated calls of no phones permitted to take selfies with former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton as they filed in. She was dressed in a sparkling full-length gold dress with sequined heels for her final outfit - the fourth outfit Franklin has worn during a week of events leading up to her funeral.

Kenedy: Newcastle midfielder's display to forget at Cardiff City Stadium
Alas, Kenedy's day took another turn for the worse as his tame effort from the spot was easily parried by keeper Neil Etheridge . It earned the Bluebirds a point, which they will take to John Smith's Stadium next weekend when they face Huddersfield Town.
The city has treated her death as the passing of royalty, with Franklin's body laying in repose in the Charles H Wright Museum of African American History's grand rotunda for two days of public visitation earlier this week.
Family members, among them granddaughter Victorie Franklin and niece Cristal Franklin, spoke with awe and affection as they remembered a world-famous performer who also loved gossip and kept pictures of loved ones on her piano. "She performed for you", Sharpton said of Franklin, who had sung at Trump-owned venues.
"We started at as like Aretha groupies or something", Clinton, 72, said to laughs. Her oncologist, Dr. Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute, said the 76-year-old singer's official cause of death was due to advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type.
"You know the other Sunday on my show [MSNBC's Politics Nation], I misspelled 'respect, ' and a lot of y'all corrected me", Sharpton said from the podium Friday.
