*Look who’s joining forces. Non other than lady Soul and Condi Baby. That’s right, Aretha Franklin and former Secretary of State, and pianist, Condoleezza Rice, are hooking up to do some good in the hood.
The two will play at Philadelphia’s Mann Center for the Performing Arts on July 27 in show that will feature Franklin’s music and classical composers.
Specifically, former Secretary of State Rice will accompany Franklin on piano for “Say A Little Prayer,” “Natural Woman,” selections from Mozart and more.
“(Condoleezza) Rice is a consummate classical pianist,” Franklin says in a statement, “and that since I sing the arias, I thought that we could do something, a bipartisan effort for our favorite charities.”
The venue says the performance is a benefit for programs that support inner city children and its own education initiatives.
