Did Aretha Franklin Find a Miracle Cure?
The Queen of Soul is on the mend. Aretha Franklin has been suffering from some kind of mysterious and potentially fatal ailment. There are reports that Aretha Franklin has been cured via some miracle of whatever it was that was actually ailing her and will now go on be able to perform again. The legendary singer is not saying what caused her latest health problems, but says she's had a "miraculous" recovery and is looking forward to performing soon. "My treatments are going very well. My last CAT scan, my doctor at the CAT scan and everyone who sees this says that this is miraculous, absolutely miraculous," Franklin said in a phone interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday. "I was talking to Smokey Robinson, my oldest best friend Smokey, talking about the fact that some doctors are not very well acquainted with faith healing. And Smokey said, 'Well, they just don't know who your healer is.'" The 71-year-old has canceled several concerts and public appearances over the last few months due to unspecified health concerns. On Monday, she said she was unable to personally accept an award honoring her work with civil rights from Major League Baseball on Saturday in Chicago. Franklin is not talking about her illness only to say it was very common to women and "I just had to deal with it." http://www.arethafranklin.net/us/home
