Soul Legend Aretha Franklin Has Assured Fans She's Back On Top Form After Exhaustion Forced Her To Scrap A Show In Las Vegas Earlier This Month (Aug15).
The R.E.S.P.E.C.T singer was back onstage in her native Detroit, Michigan on Saturday (22Aug15), and now reveals she simply needed a break from performing after a successful run of shows in California.
She says, "I'm feeling much better now. I needed to break right at this point. You have to take care of yourself first, and I really needed a break right there.
"It was just a little too much at that point. Regretfully, it was just before Caesars Palace; I was really looking forward to that. But those things happen, and you have to do what you have to do."
