Katy Perry - Stars Celebrate Carole King At Career Tribute Show

Katy Perry, Alicia Keys and John Legend were among the acts who saluted Carole King's legacy by performing her greatest hits at a star-studded tribute concert on Tuesday (04Dec12).

Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito and Quincy Jones shared hosting duties throughout the Celebration of Carole King & Her Music show at The Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The venue chosen for the concert is located across the street from where the songwriting legend landed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday (03Dec12).

Celebrity fan Perry covered King's ballad So Far Away and Legend sang You've Got a Friend, while Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Darlene Love and Jesse MCCartney also joined the line-up.

Keys' duet with King on (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman received a rapturous response from the audience and earned the duo a standing ovation.

In a post on Twitter.com, King writes, "Grateful for tonight's honour, the great talent joining me, & the chance to help Painted Turtle Ca provide such a special place."

Proceeds from the event will be donated to Paul Newman's The Painted Turtle Camp, for kids with serious illnesses and their families.
