Aretha Franklin


The soul queen fell and was diagnosed with broken ribs which forces her to cancel two shows in New York.

Aretha Franklin has been forced to cancel two concerts in New York after breaking her ribs in a fall on Sunday, August 1. The "Respect" hitmaker was due to take to the stage for two free gigs in Brooklyn next Monday, August 9 and Thursday but the shows have been axed following a freak accident at the weekend.

Franklin underwent a thorough examination by doctors who diagnosed broken ribs and the singer has been experiencing abdominal pain since the fall, according to the Associated Press. She's been ordered to rest and will miss the two scheduled shows, but Franklin is hoping to reschedule them for late August.

In a statement she says, "(I am) very much looking forward to being in Brooklyn and having a foot-long hot dog at Coney Island."
