Soul legend had been recovering from an undisclosed ailment

Aretha Franklin is to make her live comeback in May.

Last month the soul legend said she was on the mend after being diagnosed with an undisclosed illness. Now she has announced she will return to the stage at Buffalo‘s Niagara Casino on May 28, reports BBC News.

Last November she cancelled all live appearances for six months on her doctor’s advice, but last month said that her medical problem had been “resolved”.

It had been reported that she was suffering from pancreatic cancer, although Franklin has not disclosed details of her illness herself.
