Bette Midler, Tony Bennett and Smokey Robinson. Bennett paid tribute to the Queen of Soul by giving a speech in which he described Franklin as “one of a kind.” Franklin was admitted to hospital in December 2010 to have surgery for an undisclosed ailment. She later denied reports that claimed that she had undergone gastric bypass surgery to help control her weight.
