Aretha Franklin is reportedly “gravely ill” in Detroit, where friends and family have gathered around the Queen of Soul.

A rep for Franklin did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

In March, Franklin canceled her scheduled tour dates after her doctor recommended she “stay off the road and rest completely for at least the next two months.” Franklin’s medical condition was not announced at the time.
