    After collaborating with Tim Rice on the enormously successful Lion King soundtrack, Elton John once again joined forces with the veteran stage lyricist on a contemporary score for Verdi's AIDA. Based on Egypt's enslavement of Nubia in the time of the Pharoahs, AIDA tells the story of ill-fated love between Prince Radames and a Nubian slave whose name graces this work. John recruited a cavalcade of musical superstars, stopping long enough to duet with Lulu ("The Messenger"), Janet Jackson ("I Know The Truth"), LeAnn Rimes ("Written In The Stars") and Heather Headley and Sherie Scott, members of the stage show ("A Step Too Far.")
    Elsewhere, John and Rice wrote material that ranges from Sting's Sly & Robbie-produced reggae romp "Another Pyramid" to the rhythmically explosive teaming of Tina Turner and Angelique Kidjo on "Easy As Life." John's broad musical palette find him using Motown-flavored rhythms on Lenny Kravitz's infectious "Like Father Like Son," fusing hip-hop and gospel on Kelly Price's "The Gods Love Nubia" and giving Headley a chance to show off vocal chops on "Elaborate Lives."
