Aretha Franklin in serious condition; hospitalized in Detroit

Soul Music Legend Aretha Franklin Is Reportedly Near Death

A new report claims that singer Aretha Franklin is seriously ill.

The news emerged Sunday evening, and many are eagerly awaiting further corroborating reports. She is most well known for her song "Respect".

The I Say A Little Prayer songstress, 76, was originally diagnosed with cancer in 2010. She announced back in 2017 that it would be her previous year performing in concert. She last performed less than a year ago in November of 2017 at a fundraiser for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in NY.

Friedman's words do not paint the picture of a hopeful recovery, stating that Franklin will be "missed as a mother, sister, friend, cousin".

She revealed she planned to keep recording but confirmed it would be her past year in concert.

"But her legacy is larger than life".

Johnson refused to apologize for his remarks , calling the outrage at his remarks "ridiculous" as well as an attack on free speech.

Aretha is surrounded by family and people close to her.

'I will be recording, but this will be my a year ago in concert, ' she announced during a Detroit radio interview that February.

While still amazingly performing into her seventies, the superstar has on occasion canceled performances for undisclosed medical treatments; she denied reports she was battling pancreatic cancer in 2011.

Franklin was scheduled to perform at L.C. Walker Area in Muskegon back in August of 2014 but cancelled the show after the show's promoter "was unable to meet obligations set by Franklin's management company".

Considered one of the greatest singers in music history, Franklin is the recipient of 18 Grammy Awards and was the first female performer to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.
