One thing that is often lost in the history of discussion on events are the conditions that surrounded the event. The cold weather affected everything. Aretha told Larry King that she was not up to her usual standards because of the cold temperature and she does not do well in the cold.
The stringed instruments portion was recorded music and those great masters did not play because it was too frigid. I imagine that a poet would be affected in her delivery just as a singer would be in their vocals.
