Franklin in hospice care, surrounded by family, friends. Stevie Wonder is one of the friends visiting her in Detroit.
DETROIT – Stevie Wonder has paid a visit to Aretha Franklin, who family members announced this week is “gravely ill” in Detroit.
Franklin, 76, is under hospice care at her home where she is surrounded by friends and family. She canceled planned concerts earlier this year after she was ordered by her doctor to stay off the road and rest up. “The Queen of Soul” announced plans to retire last year, saying she would perform at “some select things.”
Franklin’s publicist Gwendolyn Quinn confirmed with Local 4 on Tuesday that Wonder has visited Franklin. Wonder produced several of the songs on Franklin’s latest album. Source
