Legendary soul singer Aretha Franklin will once again serenade President Obama when she performs before his speech on jobs and the economy on Monday in Detroit.

Franklin, a Detroit native, also welcomed Obama to the White house when she sung “Let Freedom Ring” at his inauguration in Jan. 2009.

Her performance will be held at the Mosaic Youth Theater, and will be free and open to the public.

The public should expect to go through airport-like security and should bring as few personal items as possible. No bags, sharp objects, chairs, umbrellas, liquids or signs will be allowed inside the speech area.

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.
