Aretha Franklin warming up for Barack Obama at Detroit stump-stop
Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is scheduled to perform Monday before Obama speaks near the Renaissance Center at an event sponsored by the Metro Detroit Central Labor Council. Also scheduled to perform is Detroit's Mosaic Youth Theater.
The event is free and open to the public.
It will be Obama's second trip to Michigan in a month. Obama visited a battery plant in Holland on Aug. 11.
Obama has promoted his administration's work to rescue Chrysler and General Motors, which is headquartered in the Renaissance Center.
He's expected to deliver a speech to a joint session of Congress next week describing his job-creation plan.
