Aretha Franklin Will Perform at Elton John’s AIDS Event
Aretha Franklin announced that she will be retiring later this year, but not before she sings for Elton John’s AIDS charity event on November 7 at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City.
The event marks the 25th year of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Bill Clinton, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and Sharon Stone will also pay tribute to Elton’s work in the fight against HIV.
The event itself will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.
Tony winner Heather Headley and violinist Joshua Bell will also perform.
