Aretha Franklin In Concert - New York, New YorkQueen of soul Aretha Franklin did a great job at her 1st show back home in Detroit at DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston Saturday July 12, 2014. We couldn’t help but notice the Queen showing off her new body with her red off the shoulder gown. She confirms she’s maintaining a healthy lifestyle:

“I have diabetes, really, from years ago when I was really badly and grossly overweight. Now, I’m back to my natural size and thrilled about it,” She has stated that being over weight will never happen again.

Aretha Franklin also took a moment during her set to shout out Southfield Mayor Brenda Lawrence, who’s running for Congress.

“You will be heading to the polls soon, and you should know, she is a woman of integrity, a woman of the future” Franklin said. She teased: “Hopefully I’ll get my check from her. You know how to spell my name!”
