Mic drops are for amateurs, Aretha does a MINK drop in tribute to Carol King

In an astounding performance, the Queen of Soul showed the world why she has held the title for decades. Aretha Franklin served up an incredible performance of Carol King’s You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman on last night’s Kennedy Center Honors that will have people talking for a long time. Carol King herself was ecstatic, singing along and bouncing up and down like the kindergartner who forgot their Ritalin. The President himself was teary eyed, and the audience responded with a standing O.

This is how you do it people.

UPDATE: The original version of the video I linked to was blocked by CBS. This new video is the CBS approved video. Sorry if anyone had trouble viewing the old version. *side eyes CBS*
