Aretha Franklin Recovering from 'Highly Successful Surgery'
The queen of soul says "God is still in control" and thanks fans for their prayers
Aretha Franklin is doing well after undergoing a mystery surgery on Thursday.
“The surgery was highly successful,” Franklin, 68, said in a statement. “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!
She underwent the procedure about 5 a.m. Thursday at a Detroit hospital.
The reason for the surgery was not revealed. In November, her publicist announced that she had canceled all her performances through May.
