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

Big Jay : Greatest voice of all time!

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

Latin American : To be honest as straight man, she made me feel like a natural woman as well.

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.

Manila Luzon AS4 Winner : And this, kids, is why she's a legend

Elaine Taylor : I'm crying so hard right now...Lord help me...RIP

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!

Joel Birkin : Wtf why am I crying

iupdate : This is such a ridiculously amazing performance

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

TR Goohileshea : You don't really realize what a force of nature she was until you hear a performance like this. At an age when most people are settling into nursing homes, she did THIS!!

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.

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

Brandon Faison : I was born in the wrong era

Ali Shlaibeq : I'm not making this up just to praise the song, but that song literally gave me chills up my leg and spine more than anything else I've ever watched or listened to.

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

You will never ever see another great, historic performance like this, ever again! 73 flipping years old, mind boggling if you ask me.
