Aretha Franklin sure knows how to celebrate! After bouncing back from health problems earlier this year, the Queen of Soul plans to celebrate her 69th birthday in a big way in New York City.

Aretha has scheduled a birthday bash tonight (Fri. Mar 25) at a luxury hotel with performances and special guests.

Her publicist, Tracey Jordan, said Franklin will start her evening at “Driving Miss Daisy,” the Broadway revival at the Golden Theatre starring Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones. She’ll see the show with a group of nine friends.

After the show, Franklin will proceed to her own party, which is sure to be a star studded event.

Don’t party too hard Ms. Franklin!
