The soul queen’s spokesperson announced Aretha Franklin’s cancellation of all tour dates and appearances through May, following her doctor’s orders.

Franklin, 68, was released just last week after a weekend-long stay at a Detroit hospital. Her publicist, Tracey Jordan, said currently the songstress is resting at home and can’t wait to get back to performing.

Jordan didn’t elaborate on Franklin’s health condition.

The year 2010 hasn’t been an easy one for Franklin. In August, she took a fall, breaking some ribs and rendering her unable to perform at two New York concerts. A month later, her song was beaten up at a Detroit gas station by two men.
