A community prayer vigil has been held in Detroit for Aretha Franklin, a day before organisers say the singing legend is to undergo a medical procedure.

City councillor JoAnn Watson and others gathered in the town centre to pray for Franklin.

Last month, the 68-year-old singer announced she was cancelling all concert dates and personal appearances until May on the orders of her doctors.

Franklin was not at the vigil, but in a statement she thanked the City Council, saying “all prayers are good”.

A news release announcing the vigil said Franklin’s medical procedure is scheduled for Thursday.
