The Queen of Soul is Seriously ill

Aretha Franklin - A True Legend

An ailing Aretha Franklin was visited on Tuesday at her home in Detroit by Stevie Wonder, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and her ex-husband Glynn Turman, as tributes to the Queen of Soul poured in from around the world.
A spokeswoman for the Aretha Franklin family confirmed the visits and said in a statement that Ms. Franklin, 76, is “seriously ill and surrounded by family members who appreciate the outpouring of love and support they have received.”

No additional details of Ms. Franklin’s illness were given, and the spokeswoman, Gwendolyn Quinn, declined to answer further questions.

According to two people who were in touch with the family but were not authorized to discuss Ms. Franklin’s condition, the singer of “Respect” and “Natural Woman,” who is universally hailed as The Queen of Soul and is one of America’s greatest voices, has been receiving hospice care at home.
