He brought out Ciara for a special duet of John Lennon’s classic “Imagine” to help inspire tomorrow’s leaders. The fellow Atlantans also honored former President Bill Clinton with the Service Legacy Award for his public service.

    I love it! Ciara and Usher sounded so great together! They should turn it into a track! That would sound so amazing. I love how Ciara voice has completely stepped up! She may not be the best singer in the world, but she can sing!

    goodness, that was a trainwreck. ciara should never be able to touch a “singer’s song” ever again. i appreciate the cause but stay in your vocal lane, sweetheart.

  18. WOW

    Theres a backstage interview she did talking about Usher and how the October 5th release date is just a rumor. Just thought Id let you guys kno but anywayz even though Usher gets on my nerves I like the performance.

    [Reply]

  19. NO! NO! NO!

    Ciara fans got to live on this site because everyone know they both just messed up a perfectly beautiful song, That was a HORRIBLE RENDITION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Usher know he should have used other singers with more powerful and beautiful vocals. People learn how to be truthful we all have artist we love but they will never get better if we don’t tell them the truth about their singing abilities. Clearly without the studio sound behind her vocals she sound like you and I, just replay and tell me she don’t, STOP IT PEOPLE, THAT WAS JUST WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!!

  24. 92Hope4HIPHOP

    i think that the song may have been bigger than both of them. i think it was decent though, but not great. but then again, i couldn’t really hear the vocals much past the music… and that’s coming from a ciara stan.

    [Reply]

  25. trey

    @92Hope4HIPHOP well its not in the best quality so its not gonna sound great but i think it was koo….it was simple but nice i dont think he need to have like 20 ppl singing one song when the song it self is only one person singing in the fist place he was gonna have what 2leads and everyone else sing chours and back ground wouldnt really make sense 2 me no shade towards just how i feel

  27. justice

    i was openminded coming to listen to this…but ciara sounded HORRIBLE…its one thing to sing John lennon but to sing with usher is too much for me…but then again the quality wasnt good so hey

    [Reply]

  28. kuk

    @JAYRIDE go to ultimate-ciara.com to see the backstage interview where she stated there is no release date for basic instinct!

  32. jake

    LOL!! This song is meant to be inspiring, you’re meant to feel inspired after listening right?
    Ciara’s vocal’s are weak, Usher basically carried her through the performance. Ciara’s management must have her gassed making her believe that she can cut it live, when she clearly can’t.
    Vocally she ‘NEVER’ deliever’s.

  33. lies

    Am i the only one who hear this clearly? Ciara’s voice sounded like a meerkat..

    [Reply]

  34. MB92

    now ill admit ciara isent the strongest singer, but she sure doesnt sound horrible, she sounds good but with alot of “haters” unless ci sounds like beyonce,witney houston or anyother powerhouse singer they’re not pleased, and it feeds their hate smh. ciara sounded good (not great). work on vocal volume, and improve riffs & runs and she will be a pretty dam good singer

  35. JayRide

    @Me i saw it and @the haters!!! kno one knos how she sounded because we cant even here her!!!! how come they keep postin all these weak quality performances of her? and plze dnt say cause her singing and career is weak quality cause i knw u will bitch! @whatthef and other hatin hoes! and whatthef ur homo ass need to find rifund and tell ur why no one is buyin her shows! cuz she falls down with her big ass light bulb head every fuckin song! tawkn bout how hard hard her dick is! yea ya notice!

    Iike I said Usher pulled that note out her cause he known she can do he walked back to his people tell what do when she out…

    [Reply]

  37. Deontae

    I’m going to need all the haters to pay it and just gone somewhere. If it didn’t sound good to you, then who cares. Ciara can sing and I will not sit here and hear from some nobodies that she can’t.

    [Reply]

  38. Dave

    & if you knew, John Legend didn’t sing songs loud or belt. He sung stuff suddently so Ci did just right. & on top of that Usher had one of those Mikes connected to his face, so it was easier for him to sing more clearly & for you to hear him, Ci had a regular mike. & you can hear her really sing beautiful from 2:12-2:20, get em’ CiCi! Stay mad everybody else while Ci collect them coints & 6 digits :)

  39. olay

    one thing i will hate about these stans…u put out an opinion that might not be a sheer compliment and the get mad and call it “hatin”…NO SWEETHEARTS ITS CALLED AN OPINION AND MINES IS THAT SHE CAN’T SING…THIS JUST CONFIRMED IT

    [Reply]

  40. stylin on ur...

    @Dave

    first off his name is John LENNON

    second off sound quality between a mic with a cord and a mic without are near identical

    third, her voice isnt “SOFT” or “SUDDEN” (whatever that means) it’s weak and dry

    ***stans calling me a hater in…3..2..1…***
