The “First Lady Of Soul” is back! A few months  ago things didn’t look that good. Hopefully, a new start for the Queen.

Aretha Franklin, 68, sounds like she’s bursting with energy.

The Queen of Soul said today she’s back at “150%.” She plans to give her first post-surgery concert in Niagra Falls, N.Y., on May 28. It’s the same month that Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will release her album Aretha: A Woman Falling Out of Love.

Franklin had surgery in December for an undisclosed ailment. Since then, she has revamped her diet, including giving up her beloved chitterlings, pigs’ feet and ham hocks in favor of a Whole Foods-type diet. She’s lost weight and hopes to get down to a size 16.
