Aretha Franklin to Perform Free Concert on Coney Island

Isaiah Trickey/FilmMagic(BROOKLYN, N.Y.) -- Aretha Franklin will perform a free concert on Coney Island Thursday night when she makes her first trip to the Beep's Seaside Concert series in Brooklyn.

Franklin was scheduled to attend two events in Brooklyn last summer but was forced to withdraw after injuring her ribs in a fall.

"I'm thrilled that she's here," Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz told the New York Daily News. "She's the kind of entertainer that's adored the world over."
