Aretha Franklin has been told by her doctor’s to take a break.
The Queen of Soul’s management team said in a statement that Franklin will not perform March 25 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, New Jersey. That show would have taken place on her 76th birthday. Franklin also won’t appear April 28 at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
The statement says the singer has been ordered by her doctor to stay off the road and rest completely for at least the next two months. It adds that Franklin is “extremely disappointed she cannot perform as she had expected and hoped to.”
We are definitely going to be praying for her.
