my thoughts on : This is what you call pure talent. She was 73 here and gave a better performance than the young pop girls 👑👑👑

God : I'm crying just like the Asian dude behind Barack and Michelle

MrR3d1 : She just threw that fur coat away and took 99% of today's singers to school. Rest In Peace.

Marc1 x : " i was there and she brought the house down" Tyler Perry

2legit64 : After Ms. Franklin died, Carole King stated that she was so excited that night because, by then, it was rare for Ms. F. to play the piano in public. She never lost her touch, that's for dang sure.

Archduke of Belgrade : This ladies and gentleman is The Queen of Soul. No gimmicks, piano and God given talent. This is how you DO IT. Youngsters You better watch this and learn. This legend was 73 and she DID that. R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

The Official Andy Saenz : Wow, Aretha even moved President Obama to tears! She's a legend and her legacy will live FOREVER!

phunkyfeelone : Reminder- a 73yo woman...S.E.V.E.N.T.Y.T.H.R.E.E. No autotune. No lip synching. Very few these days even come distant to her. A new found appreciation for her talents following her passing.

Zach Skeba : when she took that coat off i started crying. so free and comfortable with embracing and turning the music into something you can really feel. unbelievable loss. rip the queen

yani nanreh : Can someone explain to me why this made me cry? I’m a dude!! Such a moving performance.

Laura-May H. : We’ve lost way too many this year including our queen of soul. 😭

Alien SexGod : A 73 year old natural raw talent obliterates Miss Swift or any modern wannabes and can't she also play those keys as well as the pipes with no auto-tune....

Natalya : I can’t believe this was only 3 years ago and now she’s gone. Come back Aretha. The world is colder without you.

akuapiatas : When people shed tears when you walk out onto that stage, you know you got it going on. This is perhaps a poignant moment where we were well aware of the inner struggles Aretha was fighting, yet, like a champion, she stood there poised and gave it her all. We love you Aretha and thank you for sharing your talent with the world.

Big Jay : Greatest voice of all time!

nawal10 : May she rest in everlasting peace...she is an angel not human ❤️

Richard Weiss : Best thing on the internet.

President Moore : And that's why shes voted #1 on Rolling Stone's Top 100 greatest singers of all time!!!

Bobby Bob : Looking out on the morning rain I used to feel so uninspired And when I knew I had to face another day Lord, it made me feel so tired Before the day I met you, life was so unkind But your the key to my peace of mind 'Cause you make me feel You make me feel You make me feel like A natural woman (woman) When my soul was in the lost and found You came along to claim it I didn't know just what was wrong with me Till your kiss helped me name it Now I'm no longer doubtful, of what I'm living for And if I make you happy I don't need to do more 'Cause you make me feel You make me feel You make me feel like A natural woman (woman) Oh, baby, what you've done to me (what you've done to me) You make me feel so good inside (good inside) And I just want to be, close to you (want to be) You make me feel so alive You make me feel You make me feel You make me feel like A natural woman (woman) You make me feel You make me feel You make me feel like a natural woman (woman) You make me feel You make me feel Songwriters: Gerry Goffin / Carole King / Jerry Wexler (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC

Modern Estate Living Est. 2014 : I love the fact that it looks like she showed up just in time to perform and NAILED IT. Walked in with her coat and purse and brought the house down. Such confidence and enormous talent....LOVE IT! What an honor and a huge compliment to Carol King...and what a gift for everyone lucky enough to witness it live. Talk about a "I remember when" moment!

Beyo God Child : Now this is a PERFORMANCE. No special effects. No back up dancers. No screens. Just a stage, a piano, a mic and a Talented Queen. She is one of the best singers that ever lived.
