Soul veteran Aretha Franklin has issued an update on her ongoing health problems after a spate of cancelled appearances this summer (13), branding her recovery "absolutely miraculous".

The singer has been battling ill health over the last few months, but she has declined to specify the nature of her problems.

She recently axed a number of shows, insisting she wanted to fully complete her treatment before heading back on stage, and now she has issued an update to fans.

Franklin reveals her recovery has amazed her doctors and she hopes to be back at work soon.

She tells the Associated Press, "My treatments are going very well. My last Cat scan, my doctor at the Cat scan and everyone who sees this says that this is miraculous, absolutely miraculous... I was talking to Smokey Robinson, my oldest best friend Smokey, talking about the fact that some doctors are not very well acquainted with faith healing. And Smokey said, 'Well, they just don't know who your healer is.'"

The singer adds of her recently axed appearances, "Any time you have cancellations you should be concerned. But all prayer is good, and keep me in your prayers until I am 100 per cent, not 85, and back onstage... The most important thing is my comfort and going at my pace. Nothing is more important than my health."

She also reveals she is hoping to start work on a new album very soon, saying, "I can't wait for that. They're working on the tracks now."
