The idea of Aretha Franklin, Queen Latifah and Joss Stone on the same stage seems ridiculous. What will happen if all that soul is concentrated in one place?! Add hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Alicia Keys, and I do feel the need to pinch myself.
You can behold this dazzling array of talent on Sept. 18 if you go to the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Dream Concert at Radio City. Tickets are pricey (starting at $250), but very likely worth it. The event is a benefit for the building of the MLK, Jr. National Memorial on the National Mall.
