About Carole King:
Carole King is an American composer and singer-songwriter.
The downside of videos is that it will put my vision in front of other people, so they might not get the chance to create their own.
I think Madonna has a great deal of intelligence and capability. I have a lot of respect for her. She's taken her career and maximized it with intelligence and creativity.
My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue, an everlasting vision of the ever changing view.
There is a downside to having one of the biggest-selling albums ever.
Sensitive, humbug. Everybody thinks I'm sensitive. Wait until they hear my new album.
In my career I have never felt that my being a woman was an obstacle or an advantage. I guess I've been oblivious.
I listen to both oldies and contemporary stations. I enjoy listening to current stuff because there's an energy to it that's inspiring.
I didn't want to be an artist.
Eric Clapton is my dream guitarist.
Sometimes I get a lyric, and the lyric, you know, comes off the page, and goes into my brain and comes out with a melody. Other times, I may create a melody first.
I used to hate the sound of my voice.
My parents always told me I could be anything I wanted to be.
I write heavily under the influence of James Taylor.
I just sort of try to be a good person; try to write music that lifts people and makes me feel good to sing.
I went to London and performed in Eric Clapton's concert at the Royal Albert Hall. I'll work with him any time he asks me.
