Condi -- who is a classically trained pianist -- tickled the ivories as Aretha belted out her hits at a children's charity event in Philadelphia last night.

A diva is born.

I really admire both of these women, tremendously. Perhaps they should consider releasing an album together for charity. I would certainly buy it. Perhaps Condi should consider becoming a record executive or starting her own company. With her connections, the sky's the limit!!!

How could the great Aretha Franklin lower herself to perform with an international war criminal like Condeleezza Rice?

I find it amazing that people are so fixated on Aretha's size - a woman who has brought joy to millions and has the voice of an angel. Condi can't compare - she's in shape, so what? She's a war criminal with blood on her hands who was the Auntie Tom for the most despicable administration in modern times. I don't know how she lives with herself and I'm ashamed of my fellow citizens who are so shallow that character is less important than appearances. Rock on, Aretha. We love every beautiful ounce of you!!!

Most despicable administration in modern times. I don't know how she lives with herself going on stage with Aretha who LOVES Obama and all he stands for. Guess she likes all the high taxes she will be paying.
