Aretha Franklin Cancels All Appearances Through May
The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin has cancelled all concert dates and personal appearances through May due to undisclosed medical reasons, The Associated Press said Thursday.
The news comes several days after the music legend’s longtime publicist Tracey Jordan announced that Franklin, 68, had been released from a Detroit hospital following a brief stay. In August, Franklin bailed on a pair of free concerts in Brooklyn after breaking her ribs in a shower fall.
Jordan would not disclose, however, the medical issues that have sidelined the “Respect” singer.
