Aretha Franklin gravely ill

Very sad news

Aretha Franklin is reportedly “gravely ill” and surrounded by her friends and family in Detroit.

Showbiz411’s Roger Friedman reported on Sunday the Queen of Soul’s family is “asking for prayers and privacy.” Franklin’s family also confirmed the news to WDIV Local 4.

No further details about her health were immediately available, and reps for Franklin did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

  1. Sorry to hear; best to her family and friends.
    Highly recommend her interview during the documentary “Muscle Shoals”; among other gems she said the “white boys” that were the Swampers looked like they “oughta be baggin’ groceries at the Piggly Wiggly”.
