Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was an ordinary girl with extraordinary talent. Her music would become the soundtrack to a generation.
She fought her way into the record industry as a teenager and sold her first hit, Will You Love Me Tomorrow, when she was just seventeen. By the time she was twenty, she was writing number ones for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll, including The Drifters, The Shirelles, Aretha Franklin and The Monkees.
But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her own voice and step into the spotlight.
Along the way, she became one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history, with countless classics such as (You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman, I Feel the Earth Move, Take Good Care of My Baby, You’ve Got a Friend, So Far Away, One Fine Day, It’s Too Late, Tapestry and Locomotion.
Playing at the Sydney Lyric Theatre from September 2017.
