Soul legends James Brown and Patti Labelle are teaming up to perform at a benefit concert for a wooden elephant.

The singers have jumped to aid LUCY, THE ELEPHANT, a 122-year old tourist attraction in Margate, New Jersey.

The operators of the wooden elephant are trying to raise more than $375,000 (GBP234,375) to bring the historic landmark into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act - so that disabled kids can continue to play on and in the structure.

Brown and LaBelle will co-headline a concert on Saturday (09AUG03) to raise cash for the renovation.
