Beautiful is the untold story of Carole King’s journey from schoolgirl to superstar. She fought her way into the record industry as a teenager and sold her first hit, “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” when she was just seventeen. By the time she was twenty she was writing number ones for the biggest acts in rock‘n’roll, including The Drifters, The Shirelles, Aretha Franklin and The Monkees. But her greatest challenge was to find her own voice and finally step into the spotlight.
