Have you ever been lost in a song?

Carole King’s legendary music is now LIVE on stage at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa…

After opening night of Beautiful-The Carole King’s Musical at Segerstrom Center I’ve been listening to Carole King’s songs on my playlist. Her music and profound lyrics have a new meaning for me. Her unique love language is like no other and it strikes a deep chord for fans like me.

Carole King has written countless songs for artists including The Drifters, Little Eva, The Righteous Brothers, and for many more. Her incredible song writing took artists to the top charts. Her unique lyrics are still popular today, and I found myself singing along to her songs while watching the show.

About Beautiful 

Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice. Beautiful tells the 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 Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, 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. Beautiful features a stunning array of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil, including “I Feel The Earth Move,” “One Fine Day,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “You’ve Got A Friend” and the title song.

The scenes transitioned flawlessly, and the performances brought me back in time.

I cried non-stop during “It’s Too Late Baby.” It was both a pivotal point of the show and a highlight in her career.
