TWO UNFORGETTABLE MOMENTS
‘My Country, ‘Tis of Thee’
~(YOU MAKE ME FEEL) LIKE A NATURAL WOMAN~

Kennedy Center Honors for lifetime achievement

Aretha Franklin sang “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” during a tribute to Carole King in 2015
“Carole was losing her mind, Obama was losing his mind,” said the Broadway actress Chilina Kennedy.
In her final decade, Aretha Franklin’s two best-loved performances both took place in Washington.
In 2009, she graced Barack Obama’s inauguration with a gorgeous “My Country, ’Tis of Thee” while wearing a hat so remarkable it ended up on display in the Smithsonian. And on Dec. 6, 2015, she sang an unforgettable rendition of her own anthem of rebirth, “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” in tribute to the song’s co-writer, Carole King, who was receiving the Kennedy Center Honors for lifetime achievement alongside Rita Moreno, Cicely Tyson and other luminaries.
