Aretha Franklin Takes June Off; Tour Resumes In July

LOS ANGELES (May 22, 2013)—The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, 71, is taking off the month of June, will reschedule two shows and will resume her touring schedule in July, a spokesman says.

Franklin announced earlier this month that she would cancel scheduled performances in Chicago and Connecticut this week to undergo medical treatment.

She did not specify what type of treatment she was receiving.

Franklin appeared on the season finale of "American Idol" last week via satellite, singing a medley of her hits with the show's female finalists.
