News:
Aretha Franklin to sing at Obama labor day rally

Aretha Franklin had so much fun singing at home she's going to do it again during the holiday weekend.



The Queen of Soul plans to perform three of her "signature songs" -- including "Chain of Fools" -- at President Barack Obama's Labor Day Rally on Monday (Sept. 5) at Hart Plaza in downtown Detroit. Franklin also performed at then-candidate Obama's 2008 rally at Hart Plaza, and she sang at his inauguration the following January in Washington, D.C.



The Labor Day appearance follows Franklin's successful homecoming concert on Aug. 25 at the DTE Energy Music Theatre.
