King sold her first hit, Will You Love Me Tomorrow, when she was just seventeen years old and by the time she was twenty was writing number ones for some the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll, including the Drifters, The Shirelles, Aretha Franklin and The Monkees. it features classic numbers including So Far Away, Oh! Carol, It Might as Well Rain Until September, Some Kind of Wonderful, Up on the Roof, The Locomotion, You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling, One Fine Day, It’s Too Late, You’ve Got a Friend (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman and Beautiful.
Beautiful is the story of King’s journey from schoolgirl to superstar; from her relationship with husband and song-writing partner Gerry Goffin, their close friendship and playful rivalry with fellow song-writing duo Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, to her remarkable rise to stardom.
She became one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history, and wrote the soundtrack to a generation.
