Happy New Year!!!
I had the wonderful pleasure of seeing the Carol King Show on New Years Eve. She was a prolific song writer and sold her 1st song at the age of 16. Can you imagine being that clear about your purpose at 16?
A few songs I did not realize she wrote were; “The Loco-Motion” (Little Eva), Up on the Roof” (The Drifters), “If It’s Over” (Mariah Carey), and “You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman” (Aretha Franklin).
Out of the most painful period of her life, came the recording of her own album, which she called “a story”. Tapestry, won 4 Grammys, spent 15 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and is No. 10 on the chart’s all-time ranking. It reminded me how God can take something intended to hurt you, and use it to produce something amazing through you!!!
Beautiful: The Carole King Musical is highly recommended!!!
