This Sunday: Carole King


The Grammy Award-winning star shares a painful and life changing experience with reporter Steve Pennells, which will be revealed this weekend on Sunday Night.

“I think it’s important to take a stand and speak out,” Carole says in the intimate interview.

As Beautiful: The Carole King Musical prepares to hit Australian theatres in September, Carole takes Sunday Night backstage at the show in London where she surprises the cast and the audience with an appearance on stage.

Carole wrote hits for scores of other artists before releasing her ground breaking album Tapestry in 1971 with songs that included: 'I Feel The Earth Move', 'It’s Too Late' and 'You’ve Got A Friend'.

Carole says she is proud that audiences are still listening to her music today.

“I didn’t calculate it…I didn’t plan to do it but people have said you expressed how I feel and hearing you sing that, I want to sing with you and I think that’s it.”
