Watch Aretha Franklin Bring President Obama To Tears

Aretha Franklin is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, living singer and she proved it again in early December at the Kennedy Center Honors when she brought President Obama to tears with her performance.

Aretha appeared in the salute to Carole King, one of five being honored during the evening, singing ‘(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman’. Not only did she have King and the crowd on their feet numerous times during the performance, but there is one spot where President Obama is wiping a tear from his eye.

Others performing for King were Janelle Monet (Will You Still Love Me Tommorrow?, One Fine Day), James Taylor (Up on the Roof) and Sara Bareilles (You’ve Got a Friend).
