Aretha Franklin known as the Queen of Soul will pair with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for an evening of classics and R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

The two are booked to perform at Philadelphia’s Mann Center for the Performing Arts on July 27 in show that will feature Franklin’s music and classical composers.

A statement posted on the Mann Center’s website noted, “Ms. Rice will enchant us with selections from Mozart and more and will feature Aretha on vocals with selections from her new album, A Woman Falling Out of Love. This extraordinary effort is sure to be a crowd pleaser.”

The feature performance for Philadelphians was held for one night only and is a benefit for programs supporting inner city children and The Mann Center education programs.
