Something for tonight

Aretha singing Carol King's You Make Me Feel (Like a Natural Woman) at the Kennedy Awards last night.

You can see it was a total surprise to Carol K, she's totally overcome. Imagine the Camerons clapping, singing along like the Obamas are doing? Don't think so. And Aretha is 73 (and an ex smoker but we won't dwell on that ;) ) What a star.

Happy and healthy as possible new year to everyone xxx
