Franklin has now released an open letter to Newark Mayor Cory Booker to pledge a donation to Sandy's victims as she works to reschedule the shows.
She wrote: "To the Honorable Mayor Cory A. Booker, the community of Newark, New Jersey, New York City and White Plains, New York, it is with sincere regrets that we will have to reschedule the concerts on [Sunday]… at the New Jersey Performing Arts Centre and Tuesday… at the Westchester County Centre due to the many troubling issues still facing the community at large.
"I will keep you in my prayers going forward and will see you soon. And of course, I will make my donation to the Red Cross."
Franklin is still scheduled to perform in Washington DC on November 17 at DAR Constitutional Hall.
