A beautiful re-creation of her timeless hits!
Carole King is without question the most successful and revered female singer-songwriter in pop music history. More than 400 of her compositions have been recorded by over 1000 artists, resulting in 100 hit singles from Will You Love Me Tomorrow for the Shirelles to Take Good Care of My Baby and Run to Him (#1 and #2 hits for Bobby Vee in 1961), Crying in the Rain (The Everly Brothers, #6 in 1962), The Loco-Motion (Little Eva, #1 in 1962), Up on the Roof (The Drifters, #5 in 1962), One Fine Day (The Chiffons, #5 in 1963), Im Into Something Good (Hermans Hermits, #13 in 1964), Just Once in My Life (written with Phil Spector for The Righteous Brothers, #9 in 1965), and Dont Bring Me Down (The Animals, #12 in 1966).
It was her 1971 album Tapestry that took King to the pinnacle, winning all 3 of the key Grammy Awards record, song and album of the year as well as best female vocalist honors for King. With more than 25 million units sold, Tapestry remained the best-selling album by a female artist for a quarter century, and King went on to amass three other platinum and seven gold albums.
Tapestry: Tribute to Carole King faithfully recreates the glorious sound of a Carole King concert, leaving your audiences with memories of the great music she wrote and recorded, including Youve Got a Friend, Natural Woman, Its Too Late, So Far Away, I Feel the Earth Move and Beautiful — the title song of the mega-hit Broadway musical about the life and times of one of Americas most prolific, honored, and revered singer-songwriters.
