Aretha Franklin Honors Carole King In BEST Possible Way

Aretha Franklin belts out "(You Make Me Feel Like) A
Natural Woman" at the recent Kennedy Center Honors.
Carole King, who co-wrote the song, was clearly
overwhelmed with joy by this performance.
If you don't shed a tear of joy while watching the video at the bottom of this post, then you're not human.

Carole King was recently feted at the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors. During this, Aretha Franklin appeared on stage so she could perform one of her signature songs "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," which King co-wrote.

Just my opinion, but this song is one of the best pop songs ever written. And King totally deserved the Kennedy honors.  

Of course, Franklin received the Kennedy honor back in 1994, so that's another thing she and King have in common.

In the video, we see Franklin in full diva mode with a floor length fur coat, performing the song like the boss that she is. At age 73, Franklin has lost none of her touch.

King is also 73, and she's as vibrant as ever.

Carole King (arms outstretced) along with Barack and
Michelle Obama experience the joy of listening to
Aretha Franklin at the recet Kennedy Center Honors. 
The beauty of the video is the reactions. President Obama is moved to tears, and Carole King is absolutely beside herself with joy, and awe at Franklin.

I just love Franklin and King and think they are the best in the music business. To see this interaction between these two greats is just stunning.

To nobody's surprise, the video of Aretha King performance of "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" has totally gone viral today.  

This is one of those videos that, when you're in a bad mood, or the news is so bad it's overwhelming, or you just need a shot of adrenaline and courage and joy, you turn to this video.

It made me so happy, and it will for you, too:
