DETROIT -- 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.
