Carole King had her first number-one hit in 1961, at age eighteen, with Will You Love Me Tomorrow. Collaborating with former husband Gerry Goffin, the team went on to write more than two dozen chart-toppers, including One Fine Day, The Loco-Motion, and (You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman. Her 1971 solo album, Tapestry, won four Grammys and earned her the record for longest time an album by a female artist has remained on the Billboard Charts (six years), as well as the longest time holding the number-one position (fifteen consecutive weeks). King, in addition to writing more than one hundred top-selling songs, has recorded twenty-five solo albums. She has won numerous lifetime achievement honors and has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Hit Parade Hall of Fame, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She continues to entertain audiences the world over.
