This may give you chills.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, 60, and Utah-based Grammy-nominated violinist Jenny Oats Baker, 40, have teamed up for a beautiful rendition of "Amazing Grace" to mark 2015's Fourth of July weekend.

Rice plays piano in their performance, which was recorded as a single and is available on iTunes. All proceeds are set to be donated to the Wounded Warriors Project.

"'Amazing Grace' has always held a special place in my heart," Rice said on her Facebook page. "It seemed only appropriate to release the video in conjunction with the 4th of July weekend as we recognize the blessings we have in this country and the sacrifices of our servicemen and women for our freedom."

Rice is a classically trained pianist. In 2008, she performed for Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace in London.

In 2010, she and Aretha Franklin performed together at the Mann Music Center in Philadelphia for a benefit show aimed at raising funds for inner city children and the facility's education programs.
