DETROIT — Aretha Franklin underwent serious surgery last week and is "recovering very well," her longtime friend, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, said Wednesday.

Jackson said in an interview with The Associated Press that he's visited with the legendary singer four or five times recently, including a few days ago, and that Franklin's "spirits are high, and her faith is strong."

"She's conscious, communicating and taking daily walks up and down the hall," said Jackson, who accompanied Franklin on one of those walks during his most recent visit.

Franklin announced last week that she had undergone a surgical procedure, and according to a Detroit-area TV station, the 68-year-old Queen of Soul is suffering from cancer.
