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.
