She wrote the soundtrack to a generation. Beautiful tells the touching and true story of chart-topping musical legend Carole King’s remarkable rise to stardom: beginning as an ordinary girl with extraordinary talent, charting her rock ‘n roll songwriting with husband Gerry Goffin, exploring her relationship to fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, and forging her path to becoming one of the most successful and enduring solo artists in popular music history.
Chock full of your favorite hits like “One Fine Day,” “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” “The Loco-Motion,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “You’ve Got a Friend,” and so many more, Beautiful is more than just beautiful music — it’s an inspiring story of a groundbreaking female artist who forged her own path in the male-dominated music industry, finding her own true voice and moving the earth for us all.
