The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin has canceled some upcoming performances due to unknown "medical reasons."
The 71-year-old singer was scheduled to perform May 20 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and on May 26 at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut.
A representative with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra told Reuters that Franklin had canceled because of a "doctor's recommendation for treatment" during the time frame of the scheduled show. A spokesman for Foxwoods said the singer also called off that show because of unspecified "medical reasons."
Franklin was forced to call off a concert tour in 2010 after being treated for an undisclosed ailment and also underwent surgery.
