Aretha Franklin, the immensely talented queen of soul, in 2015 made former US president Barack Obama teary-eyed.

Franklin, who died on Thursday, got Obama emotional with her powerful rendition of ‘Natural Woman’.

The then US president and his wife Michelle sat in a crowded theater during the Kennedy Centre Honours to watch the now late Franklin perform.

The music icon died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 76.

Watch the iconic moment below.
