Aretha Franklin still won't say what caused her latest health problems, but she did say she's had a "miraculous" recovery and is looking forward to performing soon.
She said: "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.'"
Aretha has canceled concerts and public appearances over the last few months over unspecified health issues.
When asked what her health concern was, Franklin declined to go into specifics.
She said: "I'm not one to go into my personal health things."
But she said it was very common to women and "just had to deal with it." She said it was partly related to the health concern she had about three years ago that led her to cancel shows at that time.
Franklin said: "Anytime you have cancellations you should be concerned. But all prayer is good, and keep me in your prayers until I am 100 percent, not 85, and back onstage."
Franklin said she's been spending her time resting, eating right and taking better care of herself, which has led to a decline in her blood pressure. She said she's looking forward to performing at Radio City Music Hall in New York City in February but isn't rushing back to the stage.
Franklin is also planning another album. More details will be announced soon.
