Our ears bow down to her loveliness.
Kelly Clarkson really isn't commended enough for her extraordinary talent. We think sometimes, people really overlook just how POWERFUL those chords can be and how, when she performs live, she could ensnare the attention of even the most disinterested of audiences.
Let's put it this way — Sasha didn't YAWN during Kelly's number! (We kid, we kid! She's 11 — cut her some slack people!)
But here now, in case you missed it, is Kelly's rousing performance of My Country Tis Of Thee (above) in all its wonder and splendor!
Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!!!
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."
"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."
Maybe Condoleezza will forgo politics and become a musical superstar! LOLs!
Or not - but kudos, bb! We are sincerely impressed!
