Aretha Franklin to give free concert (Getty)

News outlets are reporting that the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, will be giving a free concert on Thursday at NYC's Coney Island. Franklin canceled two performances in Brooklyn last year after being sidelined by a series of mysterious ailments. The legendary songstress will perform some of her greatest hits, like "Freeway of Love," and songs from her latest album, A Woman Falling Out of Love.

The article reports that the Queen of Soul stated, "They will get to hear everything that they came to hear — all of the hits."
