The Queen of Soul, Miss Aretha Franklin, has made a seemingly miraculous recovery from whatever has ailed her this year. She is excited and ready to get back out on tour. Franklin did not wish to reveal what her diagnosis was but has said that all of her tests including CAT scans have been great and the doctors are stunned and say that her progress through her treatment has been absolutely miraculous.
The only thing that she would say about her condition was that it is very common for women and it was just something that she had to deal with. She also said that it was partially related to some health issues that she had a few years ago that led to the cancellation of her tour. Her health has been a significant issue for her over the last few months and has caused a major disruption in her life. She had to cancel some shows which got fans worried. She also missed accepting the Beacon Award from the MLB which was for her work within the Civil Rights Movement. This award ceremony had been held in Chicago at a luncheon on August 17th.
While she has been under the weather Franklin said that she has been doing things to take care of herself. She has been eating right, resting, and taking better care of herself overall. She hopes that she will be able to perform at Radio City Music Hall in New York City in February but she isn’t going to rush into anything at the moment. She is planning to release another album as well, but there are no specifics on that just yet. She is going to keep a pace that is comfortable for her and will be putting her health above all else.
