Aretha Franklin, the legendary soul singer who has fallen gravely ill, has been visited at her Detroit-area home by fellow recording artist Stevie Wonder, US civil rights leader Jesse Jackson and ex-husband Glynn Turman, her publicist said. "I'll have more details as I'm allowed to release".

Quinn declined to discuss the 76-year-old's ailment, but said: "She's seriously ill".

The soul singer had been battling health problems for years.

Fans, friends and musicians influenced by Franklin offered positive words to the iconic singer when news broke that she was ill, including Rod Stewart, Mariah Carey, Chaka Khan, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tyler Perry, Missy Elliott and Wayne Brady.

"I saw her a week ago Friday and we talked for about 45 minutes to an hour".

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton tweeted Monday that he and Hillary Clinton "are thinking about Aretha Franklin tonight & listening to her music that has been such an important part of our lives the last 50 years". "She's definitely a queen and she's awesome so I really feel for her". "Wishing you all the best, queen".

"Aretha Franklin has been ordered by her doctor to stay off the road and rest completely for at least the next two months", Franklin's management said in a statement at the time.

"Who is not a fan?"

Aretha's longtime publicist Gwendolyn Quinn told People magazine: 'Aretha Franklin has been the Matriarch of the Franklin family since the passing of all of her siblings. "She's the best of the best".

"Just read the reports about Aretha Franklin".

"Aretha has been sick for a long time but didn't want to share her pain with the world", the source adds.

"We're hoping that God will shine down upon her and heal her again", he said.
