Report: Aretha Franklin Gravely Ill / Surrounded By Family

Published: Monday 13th Aug 2018 by Sam

According to a new report, the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is extremely ill and the prognosis is not looking positive.

Details below…

Roger Friedman of Showbiz 411 exclusively reports that the legendary singer is in “grave condition” in Detroit and is currently surrounded by her close family – who are requesting prayers and privacy.

Franklin was first diagnosed with cancer in 2010 and, though she battled back to fighting form, her condition has been the subject of much debate in recent years. Particularly in the wake of drastic weight loss and canceled shows. She has, in most instances, denied anything was wrong.

Her last performance was on November 2nd 2017 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in New York, while last public offering was at Philadelphia’s Mann Center in August last year – the latter of which she fought through exhaustion and dehydration to give.

Our thoughts and sincerest prayers go out Aretha and family.

    Aretha is and will always be the greatest female vocalist of all time. I love Whitney and Mariah but nobody can make you feel like Aretha. This performance is a masterclass in putting soul into it. Patti, Dionne, Gladys can sing but not this perfect

    Death is a beautiful thing as she is about meet Anubis God of Afterlife and she will be rebirth. Arethea has built a beautiful timeless catalog of music. She is strong woman. Wishing her family nothing but love
