Unlikely Duet: Condoleezza Rice and Aretha Franklin ‘Jam’ for Underprivileged Youth

Today Show | July 28, 2010

(Associated Press)  Condoleeza Rice and Aretha Franklin, two notable and powerful African-American women, joined forces last night for a great cause.

In hopes of raising money for arts education for underprivileged youth, Franklin showcased her world-renowned vocals while Rice tickled the keys with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

While their political views are on opposite sides of the fence, the Queen of Soul, who performed at Barack Obama’s inauguration, and Bush’s former Secretary of State put politics aside for the cause.
