A nice bipartisan effort By Aretha and Condoleeza. Condoleeza has played for HM the Queen in the past. Sounds like an interesting concert. I think I'll attend.
The "Queen of Soul" is to team up with the, er, former queen of the US state department at a concert in Philadelphia next month. Aretha Franklin will duet with former US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, performing songs such as Natural Woman and Say a Little Prayer.
The concert, a fundraising event for inner city children, takes place on 27 July, at the Mann Centre for the Performing Arts. Franklin and Rice will appear as guests of the Philadelphia Orchestra and conductor Rossen Milanov. Rice will accompany the orchestra for Mozart's Piano Concerto in D minor, before joining Franklin to perform classic soul anthems and a selection of arias.
