After more than 50 years of providing America with some much needed soul, Aretha Franklin is taking time off from the road.
Following a canceled performance October 27th at Charlottesville, VA., and her subsequent admission to Detroit’s Sinai Grace Hospital October 30th for a brief stay, the Queen of Soul has postponed all performances and appearances until May 2011. While an exact diagnosis remains undisclosed, a press release confirms Franklin’s desire to resume touring: “Ms. Franklin is resting comfortably at home, but is very anxious to get back on the road to perform for her countless fans around the world.”
From all of us at Consequence of Sound, we look forward to your healthy, boisterous return.
