Bedrock, which is owned by Dan Gilbert, and other companies are lighting up downtown Detroit buildings in pink every night through Aug. 31 to show respect for Franklin.
Our tower camera caught the One Woodward Ave. Building lit up early Wednesday morning, and Bedrock tweeted out a photo on Tuesday night.
Aretha Franklin had an affinity for the color pink, gracing stages in pink gowns and singing about ridin' on the Freeway of Love in her pink Cadillac. In remembrance, Bedrock & others are lighting buildings in pink each night until Aug. 31 to show respect for the Queen of Soul. pic.twitter.com/TbI4NadaeK
