This morning, a source close to Aretha Franklin has disclosed that the Queen of Soul is critically ill. A while back, Aretha said that she was retiring in the near future, but last year she was still out and about performing. During scheduled performances in 2017, she did cancel shows and has not been seen in quite some time. No other details on her health have been released, but we hope she gets the rest and medical attention she may need.
Aretha's social media has not posted new content since 2015 and no official statement has been released.
Inspiration 1390 will keep you posted as the story develops.
