On February 18, the cast of the long-running Broadway musical Beautiful: The Carole King Musical performed a medley of Carole King tunes on ABC’s The View.
The show, which recently celebrated its fifth anniversary, stars Chilina Kennedy in the titular role. Kennedy led her castmates in a medley of “On Broadway,” “Natural Woman,” and “I Feel the Earth Move.”
Written by Douglas McGrath with songs by Carole King, Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann, and Cynthia Weil, the musical charts the life of the award-winning musical artist from the age of 16 through her 1971 concert at Carnegie Hall. The production was nominated for seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and won two Tonys: for leading actress Jessie Mueller and sound design for Brian Ronan.
