Aretha Franklin's Friend says she Loves Chicago

"Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin is in serious condition in a Detroit hospital.

Franklin's friend and former publicist, Clarence Waldron says she had a huge love for Chicago. She especially loved the shopping and made it a goal to always try to perform in the city twice a year.

In "The Blues Brothers," based in Chicago, Franklin famously stole a scene from John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd (video below).

In 2009, she performed on the Captiol steps before President Obama's first inauguration.

Of course we send our thoughts and love to her and her family.
