Aretha Franklin Will Perform the National Anthem at Detroit’s Commercia Field in Game Five of the World Series — Detroit Tiger fans are celebrating their team’s berth in the World Series, after they swept the New York Yankees to win the American League championship. Now, Motor City baseball fans have another reason to rejoice. Music icon Aretha Franklin will sing the National Anthem to start the fifth game of the series on Monday, Oct. 29, 2012 in Detroit’s Commercia Park. Franklin, who is one of the city’s most acclaimed cultural gems, may also be its good luck charm. Last year, the Queen of Soul opened game three of the American League Championship Series with her soaring and soulful rendition of the National Anthem.
