Aretha Franklin has been in the news as of late for il-health.
Can you imagine waking up and reading all the negative reports about you being on your last breath?
Here’s a ‘breath of fresh air’, according to Aretha’s nephew Tim Franklin, the Queen of Soul is at home resting and ‘alert.’ The 76 year old superstar is reportedly feeling better, surrounded by family at home and is ‘alert, laughing and able to recognize people’ says her nephew.
The family is hopeful that the star’s health will get better as they shower her with love and ‘respect’, “trying to keep her spirits up and go from there.”
On Monday night, Beyoncé and Jay-Z dedicated their “On The Run II” concert to Franklin while performing in her hometown, Detroit according to the Daily Mail. Other celebrities have shown their love for Aretha on social media including Missy Elliot, Chance the Rapper and more.
Praying for Aretha Franklin and her family right now! ❤️??
