“You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman” Brings Obama to Tears

A natural woman? I am not making this up. Obama tears up while Aretha sings Carole King song.

natrual woman, Obama

I wonder if he cried when he found out what happened in Benghazi on 9/11/12?








From the Guardian:

Aretha is performing at the 38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors, held on 6 December in Washington and broadcast on CBS on Tuesday night. It wasn’t even Aretha’s night. Oh no. This ceremony was to award, among others, Rita Moreno, George Lucas and Carole King. Then up steps Aretha to sing the King/Goffin/Wexler 1967 classic (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.

Look at King, open-mouthed in shock and awe (the right kind of shock and awe) – and this is before Aretha’s even opened hers. Everything about Aretha is astonishing – the range, depth, control in her voice, the phrasing, the passion, the playing, the floor-length fur, the sparkling clutch purse. The more Aretha sings, the harder it is to believe that King is not going to die and go to heaven. President Obama is wiping away tears before Aretha’s even done with the first verse. Aretha is 73, looks wonderful, and might just be singing better than ever.

Was this event before or after he had to rush to go watch the latest Star Wars movie while the world is exploding?


  1. Obama was thinking about his relationship with Rahm and how he was ding. Rahm had the dominant role is their relationship. Bathhouse Barry wears mom jeans for a reason. His bike of choice is to take Michelle’s. She wears the pants.

  2. YIKES! Mooch singing!
