Condoleezza Rice, Aretha Franklin Team Up for Rare Concert.

Published July 27, 2010

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Queen of Soul and a former U.S. secretary of state are pairing in a rare joint concert in Philadelphia to raise money for inner-city youth.

The Aretha Franklin-Condoleezza Rice extravaganza Tuesday night promises Rice on the piano to accompany Franklin's "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" and "I Say a Little Prayer." Rice, who is trained as a classical pianist, will also perform Mozart's piano concerto in D Minor with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

And Franklin will include songs from her new album "A Woman Falling Out of Love," to be released later this year.

Their aim is to raise money for children from Detroit and Philadelphia, as well as awareness for music and the arts.
