Aretha Franklin back on stage at Detroit casino
DETROIT (AP) — After recovering from an undisclosed illness, Aretha Franklin is returning to the concert stage with a December performance in her hometown of Detroit.
The Detroit News says the Queen of Soul will sing Dec. 21 at the MotorCity Casino Hotel’s Sound Board.
Franklin is involved in recording an album for Clive Davis and Sony Music in November, produced by Don Was and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds.
Franklin told reporters Oct. 16 that “the side effects were rough” from her treatment for the mystery condition and says she’s “glad to be back.”
