Roger Friedman of Showbiz411 reported Sunday that Aretha Franklin is deathly ill. Her family and friends have run to be by her side in Detroit.
No particular details have been disclosed about what is affecting the soul singer’s health.
The 76 year old “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” singer has allegedly has health problems for quite some time. In spite of this she still performed until last year.
Last summer her declining health prevented her from performing at several concerts. Due to Doctor’s orders she was required to take a break from touring.
Last year she announced she would be getting ready to retire after her album release. She would do less and less performances in the years to come.
Franklin told WDIV in 2017, “This will be my last year. I will be recording, but this will be my last year in concert. This is it.”
Unfortunately, we know what happened last time an iconic musician told the world “THIS IS IT.”
Update: TMZ has confirmed Aretha Franklin is losing her battle against cancer. Her family says they are gathering to say their last goodbyes.Free contest software by Rewards Fuel
