PARTY AT THE
Performing before Queen Elizabeth II as part of her Golden Jubilee is considered such as honor
that the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, will confront her fear of flying and get on a plane for the
first time in 19 years.
Franklin hasn't flown since she was on a two engine prop plane in 1983. That flight so terrified her
never to fly again - and hasn't - until she received the invitation from the Queen.
To prepare for the event the airline is having Franklin attend fear of flying classes, including
spending time in a flight simulator machine.
The 60-year-old Franklin, the first female performer inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame, has won 15 Grammy Awards, the Grammy Legend Award and the Grammy Lifetime
Achievement Award. She will perform for Queen Elizabeth II in the gardens of Buckingham
Palace on June 3, as part of the Queen's Concerts program.
Afterward Queen Elizabeth will host a reception for the artists.
Official Jubilee Photograph of Queen Elizabeth II
Franklin performed at former President Bill Clinton's inauguration in 1993, and has given at least
Royal Command Performance for Elizabeth II. Her voice has been designated a natural resource
of the state of Michigan.
Life is convoluted and the blue bloods of England are no
exceptions. While the Palace is in
mourning, with the funeral service for the beloved Queen Mum taking place tomorrow, and
the official memorial service for Princess Margaret scheduled for next week, plans continue on
schedule for the Party at the Palace extravaganza as part of the Queen's Jubilee
This year marks the 50th anniversary of The Queen's Accession to the
Only five previous British monarchs have achieved reigns of such long duration.
Queen Mother Elizabeth
Nobody loved a party more than Princess Margaret and the Queen Mum thoroughly enjoyed
music. Her favorite song - I'll Be Seeing You. No doubt somebody will include that
in the Party at the Palace repertoire.
This past week-end Princes William and
a rare British interview, disclosed that their
great-grand mum was something of a cut-up.
One year, following a family Christmas lunch, the
Queen Mum flabbergasted her brood by doing an impersonation of hip-hop comedian Ali G, a
cult comedy creation of Sacha Baron Cohen. In 1999 he competed with the Queen when he gave
alternative message on Christmas Day, broadcast on Britain's Channel 4.
As for the royal head of household and kingdom, Queen Elizabeth reportedly has been known to
help roll up the rugs at Windsor Palace and is an avid dancer, including keeping up with the
dances favored by her granddaughters, Beatrice, 13, and
their private parties, the royal family gathers around the piano for sing alongs.
Music should and will play a significant role in the Jubilee Celebration.
"This is easily the biggest music festival this city has ever seen," said Chamber of Commerce
president Tom Mooney.
The Queen's Concerts take place in Buckingham Palace on June 1 and 3 with 15,000 invited
guests expected to attend.
Crossing the pond to perform will be Tony Bennett, a favorite of the Royal Family.
Another American making an appearance is Brian Wilson, co-founder of the Beach Boys. Las
Vegas' favorite Welshman Tom Jones, 35 years into his career and showing no signs of
entertainment fatigue, will gyrate his hips on the royal stage.
Sir Elton John will perform as will the most successful solo artist of the former Fab Four, Sir
Paul McCartney. While he will perform his own segment, reports have surfaced that McCartney
has refused to sing a duet with Pop Idol winner Will Young.
Paul McCartney will solo, refuses duet

who has spent more than thirty years as one of opera's brightest
Others on the bill include performances from the internationally
renowned cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, often cited as the world's greatest living cellist, and a
tireless exponent of new music. Sharing the program are Sir Thomas Allen, considered the most

Alagna and Angela Gheorghiu.

TOOLING ON DOWN THE
Boys have always loved automobiles.
That includes boys who grow up to become president. The Harry S. Truman Library and Museum
is featuring a display of the Chrysler automobiles that Harry and his wife, Bess, loved.
Two years ago, the Chrysler Corporation began restoring the cars, at a cost of about $120,000
contributed by the Chrysler Corporation, which now appear much as they did when Harry and
Bess Truman first purchased them from the showroom floor 62 years ago.
There is a 1941 Chrysler Royal Club. Unusual features include "Corinthian burled walnut" paint
finish on dash and door trim in addition to the standard "straight grain"
finish; center bumper guard on front bumper; red stripes on all bumper guards. Red, green,
and black stripes were available on 1941 Chryslers.
The 1941 Chrysler Windsor Sedan.
Unusual features: purchase price $1,372.00. Built October 21, 1940. Purchased November 9,
1940. Total number manufactured 36,396. Two-tone paint on wheels; front fender gravel
straps and robe rail in back seat; red stripes on bumper guards.
In 1913 Truman purchased his first automobile, a 1911 Stafford.
Prior to taking up residency on
Pennsylvania Avenue he transferred his love of the automobile into a job - working as a
membership salesman for the Kansas City Automobile Club.
In Las Vegas the 16th Annual Classic and Collector Car Auction takes place April 19-21 at
As might be expected celebrity owned wheels are part of the event.
Wayne Newton's 1954 Mercedes 220
Wayne Newton is represented with several unique offerings. A fire engine and a Mercedes
prototype, with a one of a kind Italian body, are part of the Newton offerings as is a 1954
Mercedes-Benz 220 convertible. Currently owned by the entertainer dubbed Mr. Las Vegas,
comes equipped with a three piece luggage set, tools, jack and manuals.
The Marcos bullet proof car
Another car on the auction block is a 1988 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL bullet-proof sedan, given
Imelda Marcos to her husband, the late
dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
It was used by Marcos in Hawaii until his death in September 1989.
The vehicle has been retrofitted with 3.8 inch Kevlar bullet proof door panels, roof, flooring
armor plated doors and windows.
Other security features include: police band communication system, alarm siren and external
speakers, oil spraying system under the rear bumper, window fogging system to restrict view
vehicle and fog screen emitting units of four corners of the vehicle.
Owned by both Debbie Reynolds and Lucille
Debbie Reynolds may have passed on husband Eddie Fisher to Elizabeth Taylor and then
Connie Stevens, but when it came to automobiles Reynolds picked Lucille Ball.
There were only 49 left-hand-drive SCIII H.J. Mullier-Park Ward Convertibles ever built
and Debbie Reynolds bought one of them. It is a 1965 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Drophead
Coupe. Originally purchased by Reynolds, shortly thereafter she sold it to Lucille

"I was touch by the song," Clinton responded after listening to the CD. Regarding the

immeasurable difference in the lives of families who have endured so much hardship and
enormous personal loss during this time of national tragedy."
