Beautiful: The Carole King Musical Toronto history
Carole King was born in 1942 to a teacher mother and firefighter father in Manhattan, New York. She began playing the piano at the tender age of three and later attended Queens College where she met songwriting partner and future husband Gerry Goffin. Her career really took off in the early '60s when she penned numerous chart hits for other artists, including The Shirelles, Bobby Vee and Little Eva. King finally stepped out from behind her piano to perform her own songs in the early '70s. She achieved unprecedented success with her 1971 album Tapestry, which remained on the charts for more than six years and spawned the US number one,"It's Too Late"/"I Feel the Earth Move." King has also won four Grammy Awards and the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize, and was a Kennedy Center Honoree in 2015. King has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as well as the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
