Los Angeles - Aretha Franklin is taking off the month of June.

A spokesperson for the 71-year-old singer says Franklin will reschedule two shows and resume her touring schedule in July.

Publicist David Brokaw provided no other details on Tuesday.

Medical treatment

Franklin announced earlier this month that she would cancel scheduled performances in Chicago and Connecticut this week to undergo medical treatment. She did not specify what type of treatment she was receiving.

Franklin appeared on the season finale of American Idol last week via satellite, singing a medley of her hits with the show's female finalists.
