Los Angeles, Feb 17 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Aretha Franklin has revealed that she believes she is “150 percent” back to her life following her surgery.

During an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday, the Queen of Soul announced that she is set to return to stage pretty soon. She is due to return for a concert in May when she performs at Seneca Niagara Casino in Buffalo, New York.

The actual date of her concert is 28th of May and coincidentally it is the same date that Wal-Mart would release the much anticipated album of Aretha. The album, “Aretha: A Woman Falling Out of Love” has been long-awaited for sometime now.

The singer had surgery last December. Doctors failed to announce the reason for the surgery but whatever be the case it seems the singer is recovering. It has had another effect on the 68-year-old as well.

She has reportedly changed her diet. Aretha is widely known for her love of chitterlings, pigs’ feet and ham hocks. She has abandoned all that and is now eating whole foods-type diets like wheat and cereals. Since then she has lost some weight and she is currently aiming at going down to size 16.
