Aretha Franklin is returning to the concert stage after recovering from an undisclosed illness. She'll perform in December in her hometown of Detroit.
The Detroit News says the Queen of Soul will sing at the MotorCity Casino Hotel's Sound Board.
Franklin told reporters on 16 October that "the side effects were rough" from her treatment for the mystery condition and says she's "glad to be back".
Franklin also is involved in recording an album for Clive Davis and Sony Music in November, produced by Don Was and Kenny Babyface Edmonds.
