Gloria Estefan Has a Friend - And It's Carole King!
MASHANTUCKET, CT – Carole King appeared with Gloria Estefan for an exclusive three-day engagement at the MGM Grand Theater on Memorial Day weekend.
The idea to feature a "special guest" was conceived when Gloria was approached about a return engagement at MGM Grand Theater. At the top of her list was her all-time musical inspiration, Carole King, with whom she began a long-lasting friendship when they performed together in VH-1's original television hit DIVAS LIVE.
In the aptly-titled, newly produced "She's Got A Friend", Carole King and Estefan collaborated on selections of hit songs from each artist's repertoire, and in a solo set, King performed some of the most popular songs from her legendary career. Sharing the stage together was sure to be a memorable performance. Show dates and times were as follows:
May 22, 2009 8:00pm
May 23, 2009 8:00pm
May 24, 2009 7:00pm
