Live From Downtown: Yesenia McNett’s Tribute to Carole King
February 9 @ 7:30 pm
Carole King was born in Manhattan, New York in 1942 to a housewife mother and fireman father. Her mother taught her to play piano at an early age and by high school she formed her first band, the Co-Sines. In college she met Gerry Goffin and they became songwriting partners as well as husband and wife. She divorced Goffin in 1968 and in 1971 released her second solo album, Tapestry. It became one of the best-selling albums in music history, and today it still holds the record for most consecutive weeks at Number 1 by a female artist. Local singer Yesenia McNett is known for her powerful vocals and has performed tributes to such legendary artists as Patsy Cline, Aretha Franklin and Linda Ronstadt.
