Say a little prayer for Aretha Franklin!

The 74-year-old singer said in a statement on Monday, Aug. 22 that she has canceled some of her upcoming performances to rest up — and this isn't the first time. She previously called off one of her Las Vegas shows last year due to exhaustion.

"Due to doctors' orders I will have to cancel a few concerts for the next month or so," Aretha said, as reported by the Associated Press.

The "Respect" singer will not be performing at the Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts on Friday, Aug. 26 near Vienna, Va. or at her two upcoming concerts at NYC's Radio City Music Hall in September.
