(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.
