Library honors Carole King with US pop music prize
WASHINGTON (AP) — Carole King isn't done with music — not yet anyway.
The 71-year-old singer-songwriter known for such hits as "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" and "You've Got A Friend" is being awarded the nation's highest prize for popular music Tuesday. She'll receive the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song at the Library of Congress and will be honored Wednesday by President Barack Obama at the White House.
King told The Associated Press it's a tremendous honor to be recognized at such an historic place.
Last year, King hinted she might retire. Now she plans to introduce a new song for the Gershwin Prize that she wrote with Hal David entitled "I Believe in Loving You." She plans to release it as a single next month in tribute to David.
