Carole King Tribute Concert
King’s success as a performer in her own right did not come until the 1970s, when she sang her own songs, accompanying herself on the piano, in a series of albums and concerts. After experiencing commercial disappointment with her debut album Writer, King scored her breakthrough with the album Tapestry, which topped the U.S. album chart for 15 weeks in 1971 and remained on the charts for more than six years. “Eventually, life will go on and new memories will be made. New laughter will come. New songs will be sung,” he said during a tribute concert for King in the East Room of the White House. “And that’s often why we turn to music during trying times, for comfort and for inspiration, and sometimes just for a good diversion.”
For this show, Davis, a piano player and singer, is joined on stage by four other musicians. Carole King & James Taylor Tribute might soon come to a city near you.

The City produced one album, Now That Everything’s Been Said in 1968, but King’s reluctance to perform live meant sales were slow. A change of distributors meant that the album was quickly deleted; the group disbanded in 1969. The album was re-discovered by Classic Rock radio in the early 1980s and the cut “Snow Queen” received nominal airplay for a few years. Cleveland’s WMMS played it every few weeks from 1981 to 1985, and the long-out-of-print LP became sought after by fans of Carole King who like the edgy sound of the music.
Her rendition of “Friend” was full of dramatic pauses, pinpoint dynamic accents and ingenious textural shadings. Her impassioned performance achieved a degree of nuance and emotional depth that most of her own songs only hint at. The black-tie concert was the biggest annual fundraiser for MusiCares, which – like Sunday’s Grammy Awards – is presented under the auspices of the Recording Academy. Now in its 25th year, the nonprofit MusiCares provides emergency financial assistance, addiction recovery and various health programs to musicians in need.

Surprisingly, some of King’s most musically upbeat songs, including “The Loco-Motion” and “Some Kind of Wonderful,” were not part of Friday’s concert. Not coincidentally, at least six songs from “Tapestry” were performed at Friday night’s tribute concert. The most impressive by far was Lady Gaga’s exceptional version of “You’ve Got a Friend,” which she sang accompanied only by her spare yet incisive piano playing.

In 2000, King was asked to record a version of her hit song “Where You Lead” as the theme song for the show Gilmore Girls. She often performs this song with her daughter, Louise Goffin. She rarely performed the song after its original release due to the rise in the Women’s Liberation Movement and falling out of favor of the sentiment behind the lyrics. King agreed to revamp the song to be, “something more relevant.” The song became strongly associated with female friendships and family members. In 1989, she returned to Capitol Records and recorded City Streets, with Eric Clapton on two tracks and Branford Marsalis on one, followed by Color of Your Dreams , with an appearance by Slash.

It debuted at No.4 in the United States with sales of 78,000 copies. Live at the Troubadour has since received a gold record from the RIAA for shipments of over 500,000 copies in the US and remained on the charts for 34 weeks. One of the most successful songwriters of the latter half of the 20th century, King has written or cowritten 118 songs that charted on the Billboard Hot 100. Prior to the release of Tapestry, King rose to prominence during the famed Brill Building era alongside her former husband, Gerry Goffin.
In late 2012, the Library of Congress announced that King had been named the 2013 recipient of the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song – the first woman to receive the distinction, given to songwriters for a body of work. President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama hosted the award concert at the White House on May 22, 2013, with the President presenting the prize and reading the citation. In May 2013 Carole King received an Honorary Doctorate of Music from Berklee College of Music.
Mirroring King’s life, the film follows her from her first break, through the pain of rejection from the recording industry and a bad marriage, to her final triumph in realizing her dream to record her own hit album. Later that month she wrote on her Facebook page that she never said she was actually retiring and insisted that she was taking a break. Carole campaigned for Idahoan Nicole LeFavour and Barack Obama in 2012. In 1997, she wrote “Wall Of Smiles/Torre De Marfil” with Soraya for her 1997 album of the same title. The same year King wrote and recorded backing vocals on “The Reason” for Celine Dion on her album Let’s Talk About Love.
In 1998, King wrote “Anyone at All”, and performed it in You’ve Got Mail, starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. In 1975, King scored songs for the animated TV production of Maurice Sendak’s Really Rosie, released as an album by the same name, with lyrics by Sendak. By 1968, Goffin and King were divorced and were starting to lose contact.
