HipHollywood has learned that legendary soul singer Aretha Franklin has scraped a performance in Chicago later this month on order’s from her doctor.
According to a press release, Franklin will be receiving medical treatment during the time that her show with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra is scheduled. What treatment(s) Ms. Franklin will be receiving is unknown, and her reps have been mum on the matter, but we wish her well.
Shortly after news of Aretha’s departure from the event was announced, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra revealed that singer Janelle Monae would be stepping in. The eccentric artist also confirmed the news on Twitter late Monday night.
HipHollywood recently caught up with Miss Monae on the set of her photo shoot for Essence magazine. Check it out.
