Friends and family plan to pay tribute to soul singer Isaac Hayes at a memorial service filled with speeches, musical performances, photos and video clips.

A line of several dozen people stood waiting to get into Hope Presbyterian Church in Cordova near Memphis for Monday's service.

Scheduled speakers include the Reverend Al Sharpton, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, U.S. Representative John Lewis and actresses Anne Archer and Kelly Preston.

Hayes died August 10th after he was found unconscious at his Memphis residence. No autopsy was performed, but paperwork filed by the family physician lists the cause of death as a stroke.
