Soul singer Aretha Franklin has cancelled all concert dates and personal appearances scheduled between now and May at the request of her doctors.
A representative for the Queen of Soul has scrapped everything on her calendar, including a Christmas concert scheduled for 9 December in her adopted Detroit, Michigan.

The news comes just days after Franklin, 68, was released from a Detroit hospital following a brief stay for an undisclosed medical emergency.

The representative did not say if the hospital stay is linked to Franklin’s decision to cancel her commitments.

There were no further details as WENN went to press.
