Aretha Franklin Fractures Toe in Hotel Mishap

Jeff Fusco/Getty Images(DALLAS) -- Aretha Franklin won't let an injury to her toe stop her from performing in concert.

Her rep said Monday that the Queen of Soul accidentally stumbled over a pile of shoes at a Dallas hotel recently.  A few days later, she was diagnosed with a fractured left index toe at an Indianapolis hospital.

Franklin said, "I'm so grateful it wasn't my right piano pedal foot, I have a gig on July 27 at the Jones Beach Theatre in New York!"

The statement didn't mention Franklin's scheduled concert in Virginia Tuesday night.
