Aretha Franklin is in hospice care

But it seems like things are in a bad state for the Queen of Soul.She is loved around the world. She was originally scheduled to perform on her 76th birthday in March in Newark, New Jersey, and at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in April.

In 1987, she became the first women inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. One of those select events was a gala for Elton John's 25th anniversary of his AIDS foundation in November in New York City, where Franklin closed the event with a collection of songs including "I Say a Little Prayer" and "Freeway".

Missy Elliot retweeted a message she had previously shared with her following, urging everyone to celebrate living legends while they are still present. She got her start singing gospel music in a Detroit church where her father was the minister.

Wrote "Level Up" singer Ciara: "Praying for Aretha Franklin and her family right now!"
