Condi Rice, Franklin Team Up for Musical Benefit

Aretha Franklin will take the stage Tuesday with an accomplished accompanist more famous for diplomacy: Condoleezza Rice.

The pair will play at Philadelphia's Mann Center for the Performing Arts in a show that will feature Franklin's music and classical composers.

The Mann Center's website says former Secretary of State Rice will accompany Franklin on piano for "Say A Little Prayer," "Natural Woman," selections from Mozart and more.

Franklin says in a statement that "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."

The venue says the performance is a benefit for programs that support inner city children and its own education initiatives.
