Philadelphia – The Queen of Soul and a former Secretary of State are set to team up for a musical charity event in Philadelphia. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Aretha Franklin and Condoleezza Rice will perform together at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts on July 27. The show will feature music of Franklin as well as classical composers such as Mozart.
As noted in the report, Rice is set to accompany Franklin on piano for songs such as “Natural Woman” and others. Franklin is quoted by the AP as saying of Rice in a statement, “Rice is a consummate classical pianist” and that since I sing the arias, I thought that we could do something, a bipartisan effort for our favorite charities.”
