Carole King

Carole King is a highly respected and influential American singer-songwriter who has been active in the music industry since the 1950s. She was born on February 9, 1942, in Manhattan, New York City, USA, and began her music career in the 1950s as a teenager.

King first gained fame in the 1960s as a prolific songwriter, composing hit songs for many artists, including "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" for The Shirelles, "Up on the Roof" for The Drifters, and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" for Aretha Franklin.

In the 1970s, King began performing her own songs, which showcased her powerful vocals and deeply personal lyrics. Her album "Tapestry," released in 1971, is considered a classic and one of the best-selling albums of all time. It won four Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, and featured hits such as "It's Too Late," "I Feel the Earth Move," and "You've Got a Friend."

Throughout her career, King has continued to write and record music, and has been recognized with numerous awards and honors, including induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
