SOUL LEGEND ARETHA FRANKLIN IN HOSPITAL

The star's illness remains a mystery...

Soul legend Aretha Franklin has been taken to hospital with an undisclosed illness.

The star, who lives in Detroit, is in a stable condition, reports BBC. Aretha Franklin‘s

publicist Gwendolyn Quinn wouldn’t say which hospital she was in, and had no further information about her client’s illness.

Aretha Franklin, who celebrates her 62nd birthday on Thursday (March 25), is best known for ’60s hits such as ‘Respect’ and ‘(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman’, but won a Grammy Award last month for Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for ‘Wonderful’.
