Condoleezza Rice Performs On Stage With Aretha Franklin!

wenn2941362jb.jpg

We give her a lot of credit for going up there and performing with such a legend! It must have been pretty bizarre - but awesome - to be there to see it!

Last night Aretha Franklin was joined on stage at Philadelphia's Mann Music Center by none other than Condoleezza Rice for a benefit concert for urban children!

The former Secretary of State performed on the piano while Franklin sang I Say A Little Prayer and My Country 'Tis of Thee, and although many critics considered Rice's performance a little "safe," The Washington Post asserts that the collaboration "had kind of a goofy brilliance."

Franklin said:

"All I had seen of Dr. Rice was in a political atmosphere. It just seemed foreign that she would be a classical pianist. She really does play. She's formidable. We decided to give it a try. So here we are, in the city of Brotherly – and Sisterly – Love."

So cool!

Maybe Condoleezza will forgo politics and become a musical superstar! LOLs!

Or not - but kudos, bb! We are sincerely impressed!

Thoughts??
