Aretha Franklin has been ordered by her doctors to cancel three of her upcoming performances because of some health concerns.

The 74-year-old songstress confirmed to the Associated Press on Monday that, “Due to doctors’ orders, I will have to cancel a few concerts for the next month or so.”

These shows include an Aug. 26 show at the Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts near Vienna, Virginia, and two performances at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall. She will also miss “Tony Bennett Celebrates 90” on Sept. 15 and a solo show on Sept. 23.

Aretha did not reveal which medical issues she might be experiencing, but the singer will be resting up until November, when she plans on returning to the stage.

We wish Franklin a speedy recovery.

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
