Beautiful: The Carole King Musical | Theatre Memphis

Kacky Walton has a conversation with award-winning director Cecelia Wingate, who is helming a production of "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical" at Theatre Memphis. Lyrical and inspiring, this jukebox musical takes the audience on a journey that realistically documents Carole King's rise to fame and superstar status as a songwriter and performer.

I owe my radio career to the Ford Motor Company. My daddy had a Ford dealership in our hometown of Clarksdale, Mississippi, and he thought it would be cute if his 7-year old daughter did his radio commercials. The pay wasn't great, just a pack of Wrigley's gum, but I was hooked on radio from then on.
