A Prayer Vigil For Aretha Franklin

A prayer vigil has been held in Detroit for 68-year-old singer Aretha Franklin who is undergoing surgery for an undisclosed condition.

Just a month ago, Franklin cancelled all concert dates and personal appearances through May 2011 under doctor’s orders after a week spent in Detroit’s Sinai-Grace Hosptial.

Franklin has had a hard time this year with her eldest son, Edward Franklin, being attacked by three assailants at a gas station in Detroit.
