About Carole King
The legendary Carole King has been making music for more than a half-century. A singer, songwriter and pianist, King has written or co-written dozens upon dozens of hits for numerous artists, including the Beatles and Aretha Franklin. Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1942, King began playing the piano at the age of four and formed her first band by the time she reached high school. By college she had formed a writing partnership with Gerry Goffin, and also worked with Paul Simon and Neil Sedaka. She and Goffin eventually married, and in 1961 scored their first hit with the Shirelles' "Will you Love Me Tomorrow." It was followed by titles like, "Take Good Care of My Baby," (Bobby Vee) and "The Locomotion," (Little Eva). Other notable songs include the Chiffons' "One Fine Day," the Cookies' "Chains," Franklin's "(You Make Me Feel) Like a Natural Woman," and the Crystals' "He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss)." By 2000, King was named the most successful female songwriter of 1955-99 by Billboard Magazine. To that point she had a hand in penning 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100. King has also made 25 solo albums to date, with 1971's "Tapestry" holding a record for the longest time an album by a female artist remained at No. 1 until the string was broken by Whitney Houston for the album "The Bodyguard," and later by Adele for "21." King's most recent release is "Live at the Troubadour," a collaboration with James Taylor, which reached No. 4 on the charts in its first week and has sold more than 600,000 copies. King has won four Grammy Awards and was inducted into both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
