From young songwriter to Rock and Roll Hall of Famer… are you ready to feel the earth move with the incredible true story?

Before Carole King became one of the most successful solo artists in popular music, she was Carol Klein, a Brooklyn teenager striving to make it in the record business. By her 20s, King was composing for the biggest acts on the radio, despite her love life crumbling. Fortunately, that’s when she finally discovered her own voice behind the microphone. With classics like “You’ve Got a Friend,” “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” “Up on the Roof,” and “Natural Woman,” audiences will feel nostalgic, inspired, and some kind of wonderful.
