Reports from sources close to the singer this week said that she is "gravely ill." Franklin canceled remaining concerts earlier in the year due to health complications and orders from doctors.

As of now, no official lineup has been announced for the evening; the scheduled date for the show is November 14. Recently — Beyoncé and JAY-Z paid tribute to Franklin during their latest OTR II tour stop in the soul singer's hometown of Detroit.
