Aretha Franklin has cancelled many shows this year due to her health suffering from an unknown illness, but it seems like she will be back in action, just in time for the holidays, as she is scheduled to perform in Detroit this winter.

“After recovering from an undisclosed illness, Aretha Franklin is returning to the concert stage with a December performance in her hometown of Detroit. The Detroit News says the Queen of Soul will sing Dec. 21 at the MotorCity Casino Hotel’s Sound Board,” reports HP

Although she has been absent from the stage she has not been missing from the action, she has been reportedly working on an album for Clive Davis and Sony Music this November. Mrs Franklin stated in an interview earlier October:

“the side effects were rough” from her treatment for the mystery condition and says she’s “glad to be back.”
