A community prayer vigil has been held in Detroit for Aretha Franklin, a day before organizers say the singing legend is to undergo a medical procedure.
City Councilwoman JoAnn Watson and others gathered downtown Wednesday pray for Franklin. Last month, she announced she was canceling all concert dates and personal appearances through May on the orders of her doctors.
Franklin wasn't at the vigil, but in a statement she thanked the City Council, saying "all prayers are good."
A news release announcing the vigil says Franklin's medical procedure is scheduled for Thursday. A message seeking comment was left with Franklin's publicist, Tracey Jordan.
