Aretha Franklin Cancels Concerts Due to Health Concerns

Its incredibly impressive that shes touring at 71 years of age, however Aretha Franklin seems to have hit a speed bump along the way.

The Respect songstress had to cancel gigs with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra due to her doctors recommendation for treatment.

Aretha declined to give any specifics regarding her health, though she was rumored to be suffering from pancreatic cancer back in 2010.

After undergoing surgery for a hard pain in her side (she said it wasnt cancer after all), Franklin told press, “[My doctor] said, “The surgery that you just had is going to add 15 to 20 more years to your life.””
