Aretha Franklin Made Obama Cry With Her Stunning Performance Of “A Natural Woman”

    Still Got It

    Aretha Franklin proved why she’s still The Queen Of Soul on Tuesday, with a jaw-dropping rendition of her seminal 1967 anthem ”(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” The performance, which took place at the December 6th Kennedy Center Honors (but aired last night on CBS) was a tribute to the song’s original writer, Carole King, and her fellow honorees George Lucas and Rita Moreno. King could barely contain herself as the opening notes soared from the stage, while President Obama can be seen shedding a tear before the first verse even ended. Such is the power of one of the most breathtaking voices ever. Watch the epic performance above.
