Condoleezza Rice took the stage last night to accompany the Queen of Soul during a gala fund raising event for 8,000 invited guests, featuring music by the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Aretha Franklin sang her repertoire of classics including “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” and “You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman”.

There was a single duet with Rice, who emerged from the wings, sat down at the piano and began “I Say A Little Prayer”.

Afterward, Franklin quipped: “You didn’t think she could play it, right?”
