Aretha Franklin is "gravely ill"

There are sad reports out today that Aretha Franklin is- quote- "gravely ill."  The entertainment website Showbiz411 broke the story earlier today, saying that friends and family have been called to her bedside to bid their final farewells.  

TMZ followed up the report by saying that their sources have told them that her doctors told family that today is the day "Aretha will pass."

Aretha is in a Detroit hospital, and needless to say, this was the lead story on today's noon news on TV stations in Detroit.  Here is the report from Detroit station WXYZ.

One of Aretha's biggest hits is "Respect."  Here is the original version of the song with song great images.  

Thoughts and prayers are certainly going up during this tough time.
