The legendary singer, Aretha Franklin, was allowed home earlier this week after going through "highly successful" surgery at a Detroit hospital for pancreatic cancer and she has revealed she has a strong support system at her house to assist her in her recovery.
Aretha Franklin told media that friends know she is "a lot more than the girl in the pink Cadillac on the Freeway of Love who also sings about Respect" and that they have prayed for her "without ceasing."
The 68-year-old Queen of Soul underwent an undisclosed surgical procedure earlier this month. Franklin already had cancelled concert dates and personal appearances through May.
Franklin said in a statement Wednesday that she had been home from the hospital for three days and that she has a private nurse.
She tells media she's "putting Aretha together first," and that doctors have ordered eight weeks of rest.
