Rare Performance: "Ohh Baby Baby" (Aretha Franklin & Smokey Robinson)

While on Soul Train back during the late 1970s or early 1980s, judging by the fashion going on in the following clip, the Queen of Soul Ms. Aretha Franklin performed an impromptu rendition of The Miracles classic "Ohh Baby Baby."

Seated at the piano with Smokey Robinson, Aretha Franklin accompanies the duo on the keys while harmonizing perfectly with Smokey's crisp falsetto. While I wished Ms. Franklin would've recorded a rendition of this solo and/or with Smokey, luckily this rare performance clip exists of these two legends cooing effortlessly during this impromptu performance.

With that said, watch their powerful duet on "Ohh Baby Baby" below and Enjoy!
