Carole King Skipped Beautiful’s Opening Night on Broadway, But Will Attend the 2014 Grammy Awards

first_img Show Closed This production ended its run on Oct. 27, 2019 Carole King was noticeably absent from the opening night of Beautiful, the Broadway bio-musical about her life—but don’t worry, she can still get the scoop on how the whole evening went from singer-songwriter and Waitress composer Sara Bareilles at the Grammy Awards. King and Bareilles (who did attend the opening night of Beautiful) will perform together at the 2014 ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, which will air live on CBS January 26. The legendary singer-songwriter isn’t nominated this year, but she already has a Grammy (or five) hanging around the house. She’s garnered four Grammys over her five-decade career and was honored with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004. Her album Tapestry and her songs “You’ve Got a Friend” and “It’s Too Late” have all been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Beautiful: The Carole King Musical View Comments King, who will also be named the 2014 MusiCares Person of the Year, is in good company at the Grammys—in addition to Bareilles, other stars slated to perform at the ceremony include Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Taylor Swift, John Legend, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Kacey Musgraves and more.
