Love and well wishes continue to pour in for Aretha Franklin as she receives hospice care at her Detroit home.
On Monday night, Beyonce and Jay-Z dedicated their “On the Run II” tour stop at Ford Field to the soul icon, who has been synonymous with the city throughout her 60-year career.
“We love you and thank you,” Beyonce said after the opening song.
On Tuesday afternoon, US Weekly reported that high-profile friends Stevie Wonder and Rev. Jesse Jackson visited Franklin’s home, as did her ex-husband, Glynn Turman, who was married to the 76-year-old powerhouse singer from 1978 to 1984.
The magazine also reported information from a source who said Franklin is responding to visitors and breathing on her own.
When news of Franklin’s dire health condition broke Sunday night, a parade of musicians, including Mariah Carey, Missy Elliott and Ciara took to social media to offer prayers.
