Aretha Franklin Cancels Concerts

The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin has been ordered by her doctor to cancel a few upcoming shows.

Aretha's management team said in a statement yesterday that she will not perform on March 25th in New Jersey, which happens to be her 76th birthday! She has also cancelled her performance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in April.

The singer has been ordered by her doctor to stay off the road and rest completely for at least the next two months. You may remember last year, Aretha Franklin announced her plans to retire and said she would only perform at "some select things."

She clearly has some health issues going on and we wish her well!
