Video: Aretha Franklin blows away Carole King and gets Obama emotional

Singer-songwriter Carole King, one of the 2015 Kennedy Center honorees, looks like she was absolutely blown away by the amazing performance of perhaps her most famous song by the great Aretha Franklin.

At 73 years old, Aretha has still got it!

This rendition moved President Obama to tears, and has to be seen and heard to be believed.

Consider it my New Year’s gift to all of you. Happy 2016!
