Idaho resident Carole King was awarded a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame Monday, recognizing her more than 50 years of singing, songwriting and performing. King, who lives in the White Cloud Mountains near Clayton, told the Idaho Statesman she is excited to hear Carole King Day declared in Hollywood. “I am so thrilled to be getting this star and thrilled to be representing Idaho on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” King said. She was introduced as an Idahoan as she was awarded the 2,486th star. Her work for wilderness preservation also was noted. Tuesday she will headline a fundraiser featuring her music with Alicia Keys, Katy Perry and others; the host will be Jack Nicholson/Rocky Barker, Idaho Statesman. More here.
