The Kennedy Center Honors aired its ceremony honoring songwriter Carole King on Tuesday night, and it's no surprise that there were some pretty impressive people performing. One of those people was the incomparable Aretha Franklin, who sang "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" and brought the house down. Everyone sang along, while some took to screaming wordlessly and yelling "It's Aretha Franklin!!!" at each other. Even President Obama cried.


The best part (after the singing) was her outfit: she came out with a clutch purse, then threw her fur coat on the floor when the spirit moved her. Aretha Franklin doesn't need her purse and coat, because she's got The Music!
