Legendary singer Aretha Franklin has had to cancel a couple of her shows recently, leading to speculations about her health. You can read her statement below:

“Regretfully, due to doctors’ orders I will have to cancel a few concerts for the next month or so. 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. I decided it was time to go home and take care of myself consistent with doctors’ orders,” -Aretha Franklin

The 74-year-old singer’s health has been in question quite often over the past year as she has had to cancel several shows due to undisclosed health reasons, though we’re impressed she’s still touring at all!

We wish The Queen of Soul all the best and pray for a speedy recovery.
