According to Philadelphia’s Mann Center for Performing Arts, celebrated soul singer Aretha Franklin and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will unite for a concert on July 27.
Rice, a classically trained pianist, will perform selections from Mozart and will feature Franklin on vocal with several songs from her latest album, A Woman Falling Out of Love.
After serving under President George W. Bush’s administration, Rice has worked as a professor at Stanford University. The pianist has previously performed with celebrated cellist Yo Yo Ma and entertained Queen Elizabeth II.
According to the site, the performance will benefit programs for inner-city children and the Mann Center’s educational programs.
