Great TV Musical Moments, Part 2...

This one you probably didn't see.

Sir Elton John was among those celebrated at the 2004 Kennedy Center Honors. During the ceremony, each honoree is recognized by those they are close to or those who admire them, and these recognitions often result in memorable moments, musical or otherwise.

During the tribute to Elton, Heather Headley, who won a Tony in 2000 for playing the lead role in his musical Aida, performed Your Song. Other than Elton's performances of this song, this may be one of the most incredible versions of the song I've ever heard.

As you watch Headley's performance, you'll see Elton fighting back tears as well as the admiration of fellow honoree Warren Beatty and his wife, Annette Bening, and the emotional reaction of the entire Kennedy Center audience. This is one of those performances my brother texted me about and said, "You better watch this one."

You better watch this one.
