Queen Of Soul Announces Retirement

After a 50+ year career, Aretha Franklin announced she’s going to retire this year.  She told a Detroit television show,  “I must tell you, I am retiring this year. This will be my last year. I will be recording, but this will be my last year in concert. This is it.”  She went on to say, “I feel very, very enriched and satisfied with respect to where my career came from, and where it is now. I’ll be pretty much satisfied, but I’m not going to go anywhere and just sit down and do nothing. That wouldn’t be good either.”

 

 

Aretha will wrap up her career by recording one final album with Steve Wonder.
