NEW YORK (AP) - Stevie Wonder visited an ailing Aretha Franklin at her home in Detroit on Tuesday.

Now, the singer's representative Gwendolyn Quinn has confirmed that Aretha is "seriously ill" and surrounded by members of her family.

'We believe she'll pull through it, she believes she'll pull through it, and that's the important thing'.

Opening act DJ Khaled also paid homage to Franklin, treating the crowd to a clip of what is arguably the 76-year-old singer's best-known hit, 1967's "Respect". "I'll have more details as I'm allowed to release".

Earlier this year, she was forced to cancel a string of shows on doctors' orders.

Fans, friends and musicians influenced by Franklin offered positive words to the iconic singer when news broke that she was ill, including Rod Stewart, Mariah Carey, Chaka Khan, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tyler Perry, Missy Elliott and Wayne Brady.

The event, a celebration of the 76 year-old singer's six decades in music, is reportedly slated to take place at Madison Square Garden on November 14 under the banner "Clive Davis Presents: A Tribute to Aretha Franklin".

At a concert in Detroit Monday night, Beyoncé and Jay-Z dedicated their show to Franklin.

Actress and singer Mandy Moore praised Franklin as having "the most incredible legacy" while speaking to the Associated Press.

"My prayers are with Aretha Franklin & her family during this hard time LOOK BELOW @ what I tweeted at the top of the year we MUST CELEBRATE the Living Legends while they are here to see it".

"I met Aretha Franklin when I was 9, my grandfather's gf was her close friend", one person tweeted. "She's the best of the best".

When Franklin performed at the Seneca Niagara Casino in 2011, she was greeted by people who knew her from the an east side Buffalo neighborhood when she was just a little girl.
