Aretha Franklin Home From Hospital

View Comments

The Queen of Soul is out of the hospital. Singer Aretha Franklin, widely reported to be battling pancreatic cancer, was released Sunday.

Neither the 68-year-old singer or her publicist are saying why she was hospitalized, but word is that Franklin is hoping to take in a pair of theater shows in Detroit in the coming weeks. She says she’s hoping to see a play about Sam Cooke and to see the production of “Dreamgirls” before it closes late December.

In a statement released Wednesday, Franklin said her family and friends are taking great care of her and she also has a private nurse who checks on her every day.
