DETROIT (AP) - The Queen of Soul is performing in a hospital
boot after stumbling over a designer shoe and fracturing a toe on
her left foot.
Spokeswoman Tracey Jordan tells The Associated Press Tuesday
that Aretha Franklin has not missed any gigs despite the misstep
following a private performance in Dallas.
Franklin performed Thursday at the home of an "oil baron" and
was packing at her hotel when the spiked heel of a Jimmy Choo shoe
"wrapped" around her toe.
Jordan says Franklin awoke the next day and "it was still
hurting and throbbing."
The Grammy-winning songstress stopped Friday at an Indianapolis
hospital and received the bad news. She continued on to a scheduled
performance in Greenwich, Conn., and was expected to sing Tuesday
night at the Wolf Trap in Vienna, Va.
