Aretha Franklin - Franklin Grants Williams First Post-surgery Tv Interview

ARETHA FRANKLIN is set to open up about the health troubles that led to her hospitalisation in an exclusive interview with U.S. TV presenter WENDY WILLIAMS.
The Queen of Soul sparked fears for her health when a mystery illness prompted her to scrap a series of end-of-year shows in 2010.
The singer, who underwent surgery to treat the ailment in December (10), recently dismissed reports she had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and insisted in January (11) the condition had been resolved.
But the Respect hitmaker is now ready to reveal all - she has granted her first big post-surgery interview to bubbly Williams, inviting the TV host to her Detroit, Michigan home for high tea.
The chat will take place later this week (begs21Feb11) and air on The Wendy Williams Show shortly afterwards.
Meanwhile, Franklin will make her live comeback at the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel in Buffalo, New York on 28 May (11), before performing a three-night stand from 3 to 5 June (11) at the Fox Theatre in Detroit.
