    Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright made a surprise performance at Washington, D.C.'s Kennedy Center on Sunday night... on the drums. She performed at the star-studded Thelonious Monk International Jazz Drums Competition and Gala Concert, for a crowd that included Helen Mirren and Aretha Franklin.

    She accompanied a trumpeter.
