Aretha Franklin is home recovering from her recent surgery. “I’ve been at home for almost three days now,” said the Queen of Soul in a statement released to the media. “My family and friends who brought me home are taking great care of me. I also have a private nurse who visits on a daily basis.” Franklin has still not confirmed reports that she has pancreatic cancer, and remains hopeful about the coming days. Ever the girl about town, Franklin added that she would like to take in a little theater in her hometown of Detroit. “I’m hoping to be strong enough to go out and see the upcoming Sam Cooke play at the Music Hall in downtown Detroit before Jan. 2, as well as a performance of “Dreamgirls” at the FOX before it closes,” she said. It’s good to see that ReRe is back in good spirits. We continue to pray for this living icon. What are your favorite Aretha Franklin songs?
