We all knew that the Queen of Soul singer Aretha Franklin had surgery last week however it was not disclosed why she needed the surgery.

She did make a statement after her surgery stating “God is still in control. I had superb doctors and nurses whom were blessed by all the prayers of the city and the country. God bless you all for your prayers!”

Now it has been reported by a relative that Aretha is suffering from pancreatic cancer.

Please do keep Aretha Franklin in your prayers.
