That Time Aretha Franklin Made Me Cry. Oh. And The President Of The Free World, Him Too

In today's People Who Make 73 Look Easy, Aretha Franklin. Performing at the Kennedy Center last night, in a tribute to Carole King, Aretha brought down the damn house. By which I mean she owned that stage. By which I mean before Queen Bey, there was The Queen. I woke up to a flurry of videos this morning and laid in my bed and cried like a baby listening to this powerhouse of a woman. 

Aretha has been commanding the stage since before I was born. And I'm old guys. 

Be sure to watch the video. And President Obama wiping a tear. 

Obama cries. And so do I.

Oh AND Carol King going all fangirl.

There is a reason they call Aretha Franklin The Queen of Soul.
