I took my 17-year-old daughter to see Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, over spring break. Before we went to New York, and in anticipation of the show, I'm happy to say she "pre-acclimated" herself with Ms. King's music and all of its non-Auto-Tuned perfect imperfection. (I made efforts to share it five years ago but she wouldn't have it. Now she will. What a difference a few teenage years make.)
I'm sure you won't be surprised to know how much I identified with a story about a passionate 16-year-old girl who writes songs, comes to the Big Apple to see them through, and makes a name for herself.
