Sing Along with Beautiful

So Far Away
It Might As Well Rain Until September
Some Kind of Wonderful
Will You Love Me Tomorrow
Up on the Roof
The Locomotion
You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling
One Fine Day
It's Too Late
You've got a Friend
Natural Woman
Beautiful

What a songbook and that's only a few from Carole King. Wow - if the touring production of this show comes to your town, go see it. We meet Carole at age 16 - in college (early admissions). She meets Gerry Goffin and the rest is music history. They write songs for the Drifters, Shirelles, Righteous Brothers and more. Their marriage has many ups and downs - will you still love me tomorrow.

then Carole on her own.......Tapestry......and history.

The musical Beautiful is a gem and you will leave with a song in your heart, soaring tunes and lyrics re-embedded in your brain.
