Carole King (born February 9, 1942) is an American singer, songwriter, and pianist. She and her husband Gerry Goffin wrote more than two dozen hits during the 1960s, of which many have become standards; as a singer, her album Tapestry topped the U.S. album chart for 15 weeks in 1971 and remained on the charts for more than six years.

King's was most successful as a performer in the first half of the 1970s, although she was a successful songwriter long before and long after that. She wrote her first number 1 at 17 in 1959 with Gerry Goffin, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow." In 1997 she wrote "The Reason" for Celine Dion.

In 2000 Joel Whitburn, a Billboard Magazine pop music researcher, named her the most successful female songwriter of 1955-99 because she wrote or co-wrote 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100.

King has made 25 solo albums, the most successful being Tapestry. Her most recent album is The Living Room Tour, which reached high on the charts in its first week after being in Starbucks television advertisements.

She has won four Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her song writing, along with Gerry Goffin. She holds the record for the longest time for an album by a female to remain on the charts and the longest time for an album by a female to hold the #1 position, both for Tapestry.
