DETROIT (AP) — Aretha Franklin is canceling all concert dates and personal appearances through May on the orders of her doctors, the singer’s spokeswoman said Thursday.

The news came two days after the announcement that Franklin had been released over the weekend from a Detroit hospital following a brief stay. Publicist Tracey Jordan said Tuesday Franklin was “resting comfortably at home, but is anxious to get back on the road to perform for her countless fans around the world.”

Jordan wouldn’t say Thursday whether the events were related, nor did she offer any details about the 68-year-old Franklin’s condition.

“Her doctors have required her” to cancel the appearances, Jordan told The Associated Press.

It’s been a tumultuous several months for the Queen of Soul, whose hits include “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” ”Chain of Fools” and her signature song, “Respect.”

Her adult son, Eddie, was beaten by three men at a Detroit gas station in September. And a month earlier, she broke ribs in a fall, causing her to miss two free concerts in New York.

One of the shows now being canceled is a Christmas concert scheduled for Detroit’s Fox Theatre on Dec. 9. Theater operator Olympia Entertainment said the show was being called off “due to medical reasons.”

Franklin, one of the most honored singers in American history, has won numerous Grammys, the National Medal of Arts, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
