38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors Gala

Aretha Franklin is finally giving her body the respect that it needs.

The 74-year old songstress had to cancel several shows, including two New York performances at Radio City Music Hall, because of her health. Franklin released a statement saying, “Due to doctors’ orders I will have to cancel a few concerts for the next month or so.”

The legendary singer will miss performing “Tony Bennett Celebrates 90” on Sept. 15 and a solo headlining gig on Sept. 23. Although she kept her statement short and sweet, Franklin did say she looks to get back to playing shows in November. She’s expected to perform at Treasure Island Resort & Casino in Welch, Minnesota on Nov. 11th.

Get well, Ms. Franklin!
