This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting the Bushnell Theater here in Connecticut to see Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Beautiful it was! I was not aware of how many songs Carole King wrote for so many different artists. It is so weird to think about how different the music industry was, there were people who sat in a room all day working on songs for any artist to come pick up. The musical not only followed Carole King through her career, also shared the story of her life. She is a true inspiration. She worked so hard behind the scenes for so long until she had the confidence to go out on her own. I look forwards to reading her memoir. The show its self was amazing. It was hard to control myself from singing and dancing the entire time. Thankful after they bowed entire cast did a sing along with the audience – it was so powerful and fun! Now on to the music! The entire broadway soundtrack is so good, but here are a few of my favorites!
- Walking in The Rain
- You’ve Got A Friend (Gilmore Girl Fans you’ll love this)
- One Fine Day
- He’s Sure The Boy I Love
- A Natural Woman
Have you seen Beautiful yet? Are you looking forward to any musicals this year?
