Soul legend Aretha Franklin has been released from hospital after being treated for a blood disorder.
Aretha Franklin left hospital in time to celebrate her 62nd birthday
The singer, who turns 62 on Thursday, suffered the temporary disorder following either an allergic reaction to antibiotics or a virus.
"She responded very well to her treatment and she's doing just fine," Dr Claud Young said as she left Detroit's Sinai-Grace Hospital.
Franklin said she would be "taking it real easy" on her birthday.
She was admitted to hospital after returning from a concert tour on Saturday.
Franklin's blood disorder had triggered a rash-like skin condition, her personal physician Dr Young said.
But it was not related to Franklin's hypertension, he added, which was "under control".
In a statement released by her publicist, Franklin thanked hospital staff, friends and fans for their support and exclaimed: "Hallelujah and glory to God."
Franklin is one of the world's most revered singers, best known for her signature song Respect.
