Carla Bruni-Sarokzy will lead a glittering line-up of stars at a concert here to mark Nelson Mandela’s birthday, in what will be her first public show since becoming France’s first lady.

Bruni-Sarkozy, a model-turned-musician, will perform for the first time in public since marrying French President Nicolas Sarkozy at the concert at Radio City Music Hall in Madison Square Garden.

The event, which also stars Stevie Wonder and soul queen Aretha Franklin, ends a week of celebrations for the 91st birthday of the former South African president.
