Carole King's 'Welcome to My Living Room' to Debut on Public Television in August
NEW YORK, NY - One of music’s most prolific songwriters invites fans for an intimate, career-spanning concert. Filmed during Carole King’s sold-out, critically acclaimed 2005-2006 Living Room World Tour, the performance special follows the trajectory of her 40-plus year career: from her inauspicious beginnings as the self-described "lyrically challenged" member of Brooklyn high school girl group the Co-Sines to a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer whose songs have topped the charts for artists from an impressively wide range of genres. CAROLE KING: WELCOME TO MY LIVING ROOM premieres nationwide August 2008 on public television.
WELCOME TO MY LIVING ROOM makes it clear that no one performs Carole King’s classic songs better than she does. Playing decades-old compositions with the exuberance of that Brooklyn teenage girl writing simple songs about boys, the joy she finds in making and playing music is evident, whether solo on piano or guitar, or with accompaniment. The personable singer/songwriter charms the audience with chatty banter, her mile-wide smile and earnest delivery of every lyric. And her audience is equally invested — even the men sing along on the chorus of "(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman."
