Today is Carole King’s birthday which brings back happy memories from last year.
We were in Denver with an evening to spare before joining IrrigationNZ’s tour of Colorado and Nebraska when we saw advertisements for Beautiful: The Carole King Story.
Professor Google told us we were only a few blocks from the theatre and had time to walk there before it started.
There were tickets to spare, we bought them and spent the next few hours entranced.
We didn’t know how many of her songs we knew until we heard them.
From the first song It might As Well Rain Until September to the last encore, it was Beautiful.
