Aretha Franklin’s family gathers around ‘gravely ill’ singer’s bedside

Aretha Franklin, 76, is reportedly “gravely ill” and her family has gathered at the singer’s home in Detroit. She has asked fans “for your prayers.”

According to Showbiz411, Franklin is dying of pancreatic cancer. Her last public performance was in late 2017 at a benefit for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

She announced last year that she would be retiring from touring following a few dates in support of her latest album. She was forced to cancel several concerts recently on her doctor’s orders.

“I must tell you, I am retiring this year,” Franklin told Detroit station WDIV at the time. “This will be my last year. I will be recording, but this will be my last year in concert. This is it.”
