America’s Queen of Soul music, Aretha Franklin is said to be in hospice care at her home, a source close to the 76-year-old singer has revealed.
Reports of the iconic singer being gravely ill was first reported by Showbiz 411.
Showbiz 411’s Roger Friedman had told CNN: “She has a great family, she’s surrounded by love, and the world is sending prayers. All further announcements will be made by her family. We just want to send love and prayers.”
Hospice care includes palliative care given to incurably ill patients in institutions as hospitals and nursing homes, and also to those who would rather spend their last months and days of life in their own homes.
The soul singer has been dogged by reports of failing health for years and appeared frail in recent photos, but she has kept her struggles private.
Many celebrities including Mariah Carey have since sent goodwill messages to the 76-year-old music legend. Her longtime friend and colleague, Stevie Wonder is said to have already visited her.
