Aretha Franklin Made US President Barack Obama Cry with a breathtaking performance  


This is the breathtaking moment Aretha Franklin performed a soulful rendition of (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman – and immediately reduced the US President to tears. The talented singer took to the stage to sing her popular 1968 hit for a star studded audience at a honours concert in America.

But Aretha barely made it through the first verse before Barack Obama was spotted wiping his eyes, according to WSJ News.

The camera later panned back to the President, who was seen singing along to the music as he sat beside wife Michelle.

He later stood for the final chorus of the song, clapping appreciatively as co-writer of the song Carole King danced along beside the couple.

The President and his wife were in attendance at the 38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors, held on December 6 in Washington.
