The “Queen Of Soul,” ARETHA FRANKLIN, is recovering from broken ribs and abdominal pains she suffered in a recent fall. Those injuries will cause her to miss two free concerts she had scheduled for BROOKLYN, NY on MONDAY AUGUST 9th and THURSDAY 12th.
ARETHA was also scheduled to perform for US Representative CHARLES RANGEL’s birthday.
Ms. FRANKLIN says she is going to attempt to reschedule the canceled BROOKLYN dates for later in the month. The shows were scheduled for WINGATE FIELD in EAST FLATBUSH on MONDAY and ASSER LEVY PARK in BRIGHTON BEACH on THURSDAY. These rescheduled concert dates will mark the first time ARETHA has ever appeared in concert in BROOKLYN.
