This week, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical hits the VBC Concert Hall.
That has us –
1. Looking for a ticket (which you can find right here)
2. Singing ALL THE CAROLE KING SONGS!!
ABOUT THE SHOW
“BEAUTIFUL – The Carole King Musical tells the Tony® and Grammy® Award-winning inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation.”
That sounds intriguing!!
WHY SHOULD YOU GO
Even if you don’t think you know who Carole King is, you probably (most certainly) do. Because Beautiful the Musical is like your favorite cover band… and we’ll prove it.
All of these are songs that Carole King wrote. You are welcome in advance for the amazing earworms.
“(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman”, famously covered by Aretha Franklin (and Mary J. Blige)!
“You’ve Got a Friend” James Taylor (reached #1 on the charts and was also covered by Michael Jackson).
“I Feel the Earth Move” Mandy Moore
“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?” has been covered by everyone from Cher to Amy Winehouse.
“The Locomotion” was made famous as a dance hit by Kylie Minogue.
“Some Kind of Wonderful” has been covered by Michael Bublé.
“He Hit Me (And It Felt Like A Kiss)” -Courtney Love’s band, Hole played a cover of the song.
“Pleasant Valley Sunday” – The Monkees (yes, one of them just recently passed away so this was a bittersweet remembrance).
AND THERE WERE SO MANY OTHERS we didn’t even list! You can probably remember your mom singing along to Carole King’s album Tapestry. It was a staple “back in the day”.
