It's getting hot in herrrre -- too hot for the Queen of Soul to perform! Citing temperatures in the 90s, Aretha Franklin called off a planned evening concert in at Detroit's DTE Energy Music Theater.

The 65-year-old soul sensation said she was "exhausted from the heat and cannot tolerate heat in these extremely high numbers and being in concert simultaneously."

R-E-S-P-E-C-T the heat!
