Aretha Franklin Resting at Home Amid Health Battle

Nov. 7 2017 in New York City

The soul singer has been dogged by reports of failing health for years and appeared frail in recent photos, but she has kept her struggles private.

In 1987, she became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Detroit news anchor Evrod Cassimy was also in touch with Franklin's family and took to Twitter to write, "I am so saddened to report that the Queen of Soul and my good friend, Aretha Franklin is gravely ill".

"Praying for the Queen of Soul #ArethaFranklin", wrote Mariah Carey.

Meanwhile, Turkey moved to take legal action against hundreds of social media accounts it accused of provoking the lira's plunge. Mr Cavusoglu said: "We support diplomacy and negotiations but it is not possible for us to accept impositions".

Some of music's biggest stars have sent their love and support to Aretha Franklin, who is reportedly "seriously ill" and hospitalised in Detroit, Michigan.

"Lose Control" rapper Missy Elliott added: "My prayers are with Aretha Franklin & her family during this hard time".

A day after Aretha Franklin was confirmed to be "gravely ill", her family says she's resting at home and that they remain hopeful.

"We probably wouldn't have Beyonce if it wasn't for Aretha, and that's who we're seeing tonight", a fan said.

Last year, the icon announced her plans to retire, saying she would perform at "some select things".

"Family is there with her".

"I saw her a week ago Friday and we talked for about 45 minutes to an hour", Tim told PEOPLE. "So many have given us decades of Timeless music". President George W. Bush awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2005. Rumors circulated that her condition placed her "near death", but her family has backed off that claim. Her final public performance was in Philadelphia in August 2017.

Franklin's last album, "A Brand New Me", released in 2017, remixed her vintage vocals with newly recorded arrangements. "She has influenced so many people", said Shirley Marks Whitmore, a founding producer of the show, which is put on at Miller Outdoor Theater in Hermann Park every spring.
