In a statement to the Associated Press, the I Say A Little Prayer singer explained:

“Due to doctors’ orders I will have to cancel a few concerts for the next month or so.”


Specifically, Miz Franklin will be unable to keep her August 26 scheduled performance at the Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts in Vienna, Virginia. To make matters worse, the music icon has canceled two additional shows — including her appearance at the Tony Bennett Celebrates 90 show at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall and a September 23 solo gig.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time the Grammy winner has had to cancel a performance as she couldn’t perform at a Las Vegas show last year due to exhaustion. Oof!

Thankfully, it’s said the A-lister will be back performing by this November. Phew.

Feel better, girl!
