Video Pick Of The Week

Since penning her first number one hit at age 17, Carole King became one of the brightest musical talents of all time, first as a songwriter for other acts and then as a groundbreaking and history changing solo artist. King started out as a songwriter in the legendary Brill Building since in the late ’50s, composing hits like Little Eva ‘s “The Loco-Motion,”The Drifters’ “Up on the Roof,” “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” which
The Shirelles
scored a number one hit with, and countless other songs that would help shape pop music throughout the ’60s. King eventually applied her gift for songcraft to her own albums, reaching new levels of artistry and commercial success with 1971’s landmark Tapestry. In celebration of King’s 81st birthday on Thursday I would like to recommend the 2016 documentary
Carole King: Natural Woman which is a celebration of the legendary singer-songwriter’s life and career from 1960s New York to the music mecca of 70s LA to the present. The film includes rare home movies, performances and photos help illustrate the life and career of songwriter-singer Carole King, from 1960s New York to Los Angeles in the 1970s to extensive present-day interviews with King and and those who know her best including fellow songwriters.
