Don’t believe what you’ve been seeing in the tabloids about Detroit’s Queen of Soul. Aretha, herself, says she’s doing great and is going to reschedule all the shows she was forced to cancel because of her illness.
Aretha Franklin appeared on the Wendy William Show yesterday by phone and what she had to say was nothing short of sensational. She said she was calling from one of Detroit’s casinos! You know she’s got to be feeling better if she’s testing Lady Luck!
First of all Aretha says she feels absolutely superb. She says she’s looking forward to spending some time on the beach in a couple of weeks and that Hilton Head Island in South Carolina was high on her list.
The Queen of Soul says she is planning on rescheduling all the shows she missed due to her illness, the exact nature of which she still hasn’t revealed. It’s widely reported that Franklin has been battling pancreatic cancer.
