The superstar singers will take to the stage at Elton's annual AIDS Foundation bash after the Academy Awards ceremony this coming Sunday.

Blige said: "Elton John is one of the most inspirational musicians and philanthropists in this industry for me.

"I respect him with all my heart and it is truly a pleasure to be performing with him on such an important night as we look to raise awareness and vital funds for the fight against HIV and AIDS."

It has not yet been revealed what Elton and Blige will be performing at the star-studded party.

Elton, 60, founded his Aids charity back in 1992 and has since raised more than $125 million to support projects throughout the world.

This is not the first time the Rocket Man singer and the Family affair star have collaborated.

In 1999, Elton played the piano on the 37-year-old star's single 'Deep Inside'.
