Aretha Franklin Brings President Obama to Tears With Amazing Rendition of ‘A Natural Woman’

Aretha Franklin stole the show on Tuesday, December 29, at the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors with a rousing and emotional performance of "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," in tribute to Carole King, one of the evening's recipients.

But while King (and, in fact, a whole host of other guests) couldn't help totally freaking out as the singing legend took the stage to perform, the entire event was so emotional for President Barack Obama that he appeared to shed a tear!

Franklin, 73, walked onto the stage wearing a full-length fur coat and placed her clutch on the piano as she sat down to play and sing for the audience.

As Franklin's performance began, King went wild, and the camera panned to a visibly emotional Obama, who wiped a tear from the corner of his eye.

As the performance went on, the Queen of Soul delighted fellow viewers George Lucas, Gina Rodriguez and Rosie Perez, who sang along and smiled with delight.

And as the musical icon stood up for a final high note and took off her coat for the moment, everybody  literally everybody  went nuts!
