Music 23/11/2016

Ellen has received the highest honor that a U.S. civilian can.

Barack Obama awarded her with the Medal of Freedom at the White House and the talk show host couldn’t keep tears from streaming down her face as she accepted it.

21 others received the award, including Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro and Michael Jordan.

Ellen bravely came out as gay in 1997.
