Family, friends, and music fans said goodbye to gospel great Delois Barrett Campbell Thursday afternoon.

A horse-drawn cart carried her flower-covered casket through the city's South Side.

The Chicago-born singer was the oldest member of the famed Barrett Sisters trio.

She died last week at the age of 85.

Dozens lined the streets as the carriage traveled to Oakwood Cemetery, where she was buried.

Many local and national gospel artists honored the "Royal Lady of Gospel" at a tribute concert on Tuesday night.
