New York - Aretha Franklin has cancelled appearances in Chicago and Connecticut later this month under a doctor's recommendation.

A Monday news release says Franklin will need treatment during the time period shows were scheduled with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on 20 May and at Foxwoods Resort & Casino in Connecticut on 26 May.

The release doesn't specify what kind of treatment and her publicist did not immediately respond to a message seeking details.

Singer Janelle Monae will step in for Franklin for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Corporate Night fundraiser.

The Grammy-winning singer will be playing orchestral versions of her songs that she'll first debut on Thursday with the San Francisco Symphony.
