Aretha Franklin Performs Duet with Condoleezza Rice


The Queen of Soul joined the former Secretary of State onstage Tuesday night at the Mann Center for Performing Arts in Philadelphia, Pa. in a duet that ABC News called “The Diva and the Diplomat.”

Rice tickled the ivories on selections by Mozart and others, while Franklin sang from her upcoming album, A Woman Falling Out of Love. The two performed together as well, notably on Franklin’s hit “Say A Little Prayer.”

Tickets for the show ranged from $24-$95, benefiting educational programs for inner-city youth.
