Carole King is an american singer songwriter who has been an active member of the music community since the 1950’s.

Her most well known songs include “It’s Too Late” “You’ve Got a Friend” and “I Feel the Earth Move” all of which are off of her album Tapestry which was released in 1971.
Annie Lennox was named as one of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time by Rolling Stone Magazine. She is known for her work in the Eurythmics and The Tourists. In the early 90’s she went on to establish an acclaimed solo career and is known for songs like “I Put a Spell on You” “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” and “Walking on Broken Glass.”
Carly Simon rose to fame back in the 1970’s with back-to-back hit records. She started a band with her sister initially called The Simon Sisters’ but went solo in 1971 with her self-titled album ‘Carly Simon.’ She had 13 Top 40 U.S. hits. Her most well known songs include “You’re So Vain” “Coming Around Again” and “Nobody Does it Better.”
