Obama's speech was good, but I was over in a corner quietly bawling while Aretha Franklin sang "My Country Tis of Thee."

Hearing her linger over the words "sweet land of liberty" was so beautiful, and I could tell that they meant something deeper and more profound to her than they've ever really meant to me. I could hear a depth of years and struggle in her voice.

Plus, she's the Queen of Soul, and it was so neat to hear her take a song that can sound antiquated and make it swing, while still being true to what it is.
