Wouldn’t this be an amazing female concert? All are multi-talented ladies that sing and play piano. Condoleezza Rice admits she can not sing but she surely has other talents. Ms. Rice played piano on Tuesday evening at the Mann Center with the “queen of soul”, Aretha Franklin. Interesting combo, Aretha Franklin is an admitted loyal democrat who sang at Obama’s inauguration and we all know Ms. Rice served as the Secretary of State for former republican president George W. Bush. These two ladies pulled it off in Philadelphia, the city of brother and sisterly love, by sharing the stage to raise money for urban children and awareness for music and the arts. Over 10,000 people were in attendance and I was fortunate enough to be among them.
A huge applause goes out to these ladies who were able to put aside their political differences and come together for America and a cause. The last song was “My Country “Tis of Thee".
Who is your favorite female vocalist to make the list of the ultimate concert?
Maybe we can plant a seed for next year’s Lilith Fair.
