There was only one Aretha
Tears flowed here tonight when Stephen Colbert featured this video on his show. Aretha Franklin, at the Dec. 6, 2015, Kennedy Center Honors, sang “You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman.” She was 76 at the time, but proved she was far from being over the hill. I don’t know what was more tear-provoking, her still-powerful voice filling the room or the very elegant, dignified President and Mrs. Obama in the balcony. I miss them all.
Aretha Louise Franklin
March 25, 1942 – August 16, 2018
