Last night the legendary singer/songwriter Carole King made history again when she became the first woman ever to win the Gerswhin Prize for Popular Song, which is given by the President and Library of Congress each year. She will join the ranks of Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon who have won in previous years. Songs like "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman", "So Far Away" and "You've Got A Friend" have made her craft timeless and wonderful.
In an interview with the AP she stated "It is yet another of the many important messages to young woman that women matter, women make a difference."
Congrats Carole on this well deserved award.
