The Diva of them all, Ms. Aretha Franklin, has canceled her Washington, D.C., Wolf Trap National Park, concert and her New York, Radio City Music Hall concerts on doctors’ orders.
“Regretfully, due to doctors’ orders I will have to cancel a few concerts for the next month or so,” Franklin said in a press release. “I’m especially disappointed because two of them are among my favorite cities, Washington D.C. and New York. I don’t want to miss any. I should continue the rest of my tour by November.”
The soul singer added, “I decided it was time to go home and take care of myself consistent with doctors’ orders.”
She is scheduled to appear in Chicago on October 9 at the Chicago Theater. We hope she performs. Keep her in your prayers.
