    Reuters reports that the Queen of Soul, the one, the only Aretha Franklin, was underwent surgery on Thursday for an undisclosed condition. A Detroit City council member organized a prayer vigil in advance of the surgery for the Queen.

    Franklin, 68, has canceled all concert performances and personal appearances until May 2011 under the advice of her doctors.

    A publicist for Franklin said the singer sent a letter of thanks to supporters for the vigil but did not reveal the condition for which she was undergoing surgery.

    Afterwards, a statement from the singer was issued, which read: "The surgery was highly successful. God is still in control. I had superb doctors and nurses whom were blessed by all the prayers of the city and the country. God bless you all for your prayers!"

    Whatever the case, ARTISTdirect wishes 'Retha a speedy, full recovery.

    Did you say a prayer for Aretha?
