Aretha Franklin Cancels Shows Under Doctors' Orders

The Queen of Soul has been forced to cancel several upcoming concerts to rest.

The Queen of Soul said in a statement 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."

The legendary 74-year-old singer, who canceled a Las Vegas show last year due to exhaustion, hopes to return to live performing in November.
