Aretha Franklin leaves her hotel in Manhattan

Legendary soul singer Aretha Franklin has canceled two free concerts in New York because of an injury, according to a statement issued by her publicists Wednesday. “Due to fractured ribs and pain in the abdomen, it was necessary for Ms. Franklin to cancel and reschedule the two concerts,” said the statement from spokeswoman Gwendolyn Quinn. Franklin’s doctors have advised her to come in for tests immediately, the statement said.
Efforts are being made to reschedule the concerts at the end of August, Quinn said.

“I was very much looking forward to being in Brooklyn and having a foot-long hot dog at Coney Island,” Franklin said in the statement. “Hopefully I will get it before the end of August.” Franklin, 68, also noted, “I will really miss that nice slice of cake from Congressman Charlie Rangel’s birthday party and singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to him.” Franklin, dubbed the “Queen of Soul,” was scheduled to perform at Rangel’s 80th birthday party on August 11, the statement said.

We hope Aretha rests up and gets well soon. Perhaps she should also lay off the hot dogs and birthday cake for a minute too…
