Aretha Franklin is in hospice care

Former public protector Thuli Madonsela has joined the worldwide chorus of well-wishes and prayers for ailing USA musician Aretha Franklin, after reports emerged on Monday that the gravely ill star was surrounded by concerned family.

"I grew up with her", Woods said. Trump tweeted that his former employee had only started to attack him after she lost her job.

She had signed with Atlantic Records and, according to Contours member Joe Billingslea, there was personal reason she didn't pursue Motown.

There are very few musicians Boston City Councilor Lydia Edwards and her mother can agree on, but the legendary Aretha Franklin is the exception. He reportedly told concertgoers to "make some noise for Aretha Franklin" and offered his thoughts and prayers.

News of Aretha's condition has left fans across the world concerned.

"We believe she'll pull through it, she believes she'll pull through it, and that's the important thing".

Beginning in 2010, Aretha began experiencing health problems. Although never disclosing her illness, it appears her health began to improve.

In 2010, she suffered serious health problems, but continued to perform until late previous year, singing last in November 2017 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in NY.

Aretha was born in Memphis, Tenn.

Under doctors' orders to rest and recuperate, Franklin canceled a raft of concerts earlier this year.

As a teenager, Aretha's father helped her launch a gospel career.

"Respect" shot up to the top of the charts and not only became Aretha's signature song, it also became an anthem for civil rights and feminism.

"It is an honor to be in a position to even attempt to portray her in the show".

In 2005, Ms. Franklin was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom - the highest award for an American civilian - by then-president George W. Bush. She would return to the nation's capitol in 2009 with a show-stopping rendition of "My Country Tis of Thee" for the inauguration of president Obama.
