That’s right! President Obama was reduced to tears at the Kennedy Centre Honours when Aretha Franklin sang this rendition of Carole King’s (You make me feel like a) Natural Woman. Chilina Kennedy who plays Carole King in Beautiful, the musical, introduces Aretha who is regal in her performance and stunning in her fur.
This is just beautiful.  Are you an Aretha Franklin fan?

    Why highlight only Obama, Leader of the Free World, crying??? So many other people with great talent were crying also? Maybe Jada & Will Smith should watch this clip and see the mutual respect between black & white performers!

      African Americans (AMs) are gathering momentum at the racial discrimination in the US and it will only increase – and I just hope it does not mean mob violence.But there are so many more educated AMs now – look at how many Oprah funded (males to University – hundreds and hundreds and prob thousands) – and also girls in Africa. Oh yes – we live in changing times.
