Aretha Franklin Reportedly Gravely Ill
DETROIT, Michigan - The Queen of Soul is reportedly gravely ill in a Detroit hospital.
Aretha Franklin, 76, has been battling several health problems in recent years.

Following doctor’s orders, Franklin cancelled several performances since last summer, including the New Orleans Jazz Fest in April.
