Following The Death Of Her Goddaughter, Will Aretha Franklin Play Radio City Music Hall On Friday And Saturday?

Following the death of Aretha Franklin's Goddaughter, Whitney Houston, Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles, I wonder if the Queen of Soul will cancel her Friday and Saturday night performance at Radio City Music Hall.

 I am guessing Aretha will be too deeply in mourning, but I wonder whether she will consider an opportunity to pay tribute to Whitney Houston in the one currency they both excelled at.

I've just been reading my WHitney Houston posts over the past three years, it is really sad, like everybody else I was overjoyed to see her return and then, as word from Australia filtered down, I went from telling the Aussies to go stuff themselves to recommending she take a break and return to singing after some rest.

We still don't know what happened to her, but a very dangerous time for drug addicts, as Amy Winehouse discovered, is the relapse.

To return to Aretha, I doubt she could pull herself together in time for RDCMH, which makes the second she has canceled the Hall in a row, and a week that has found it dark for an entire week following Barry Manilow's re-scheduling.

Incidentally, tickets are still on sale.
