Aretha Franklin announces retirement

At 74, the Queen of Soul has chose to take it a little easier.

Aretha Franklin is planning to say goodbye to the music scene as she announced her retirement this 2017.

"This will be my a year ago", Aretha Franklin said, according to LA Times.

She has continued to record and perform since, and two years ago, the star reduced President Obama to tears when she performed (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman at the Kennedy Center Honours ceremony.

Franklin said she “cant wait” to begin working on her new album and that the songs would all be new, original and wide-ranging compositions.

"This will be my previous year", Franklin said".

One of the most distinctive voices in popular music, she is known for hits including Respect and Dr Feelgood.

Franklin has been performing since she was 19, but has been suffering from ill health in recent years.

Discussing her upcoming album, Frankin said she is "exuberant" about the project and "can't wait to get in the studio".

Franklin called the decision to retire bittersweet but added that, “I feel very, very enriched and satisfied with respect to where my career came from, and where it is now.

She said it was hard for her to announce the retirement because "it's what I've done all of my life".

"I think that what she might have meant was that she doesn't plan an extensive tour - still not flying and still traveling by bus, it's just hard to stay on that bus", the music mogul said.

Her presumed last album would be a kind of homecoming.
