Although she did indeed have quite the health scare, Aretha Franklin has, contrary to recent rumors on the web, not passed away.
The “I Say A Little Prayer” singer is “home, alive and recovering,” a source close to the family revealed.
After suffering from pancreatic cancer Franklin canceled all concert appearances and has been laying low, but earlier in the month was said to be recovering quite well.
Rumors of her death began last night (December 27) when Twitter and other social media sites were buzzing with the false report.
