Aretha cancels Power and Light concert, Chaka Khan to replace her

Aretha Franklin‘s son was severely beaten in Detroit on Monday evening at a gas station by three people. It isn’t clear why the 52 year-old was attacked, but he was taken to the hospital immediately, and was released today after undergoing an emergency oral surgery, according to CNN.com

That’s why Franklin has canceled her appearance at Power and Light tonight Sunday, which was in celebration of the 1YEAR2GO countdown for the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts.
Chaka Kahn will replace Franklin. One thing’s for sure: Khan might be every woman, but she sure ain’t Aretha Franklin. Just sayin’.
