Earlier this year, Carole King was named MusiCares Person of the Year and will join the ranks of Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and Barbara Streisand before her. She will be honored on January 24 at a star-studded gala in Los Angeles, just two days before the GRAMMY Awards.
Today, (December 16) a boatload of stars were added to said star-studded gala, some more unlikely than others. These newly announced performers include: Sara Bareilles, P!nk, will.i.am, Miguel, Alicia Keys, Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles, Train, Martina McBride, Jakob Dylan, Darlene Love, Amy Grant, Gloria Estefan, Jesse & Joy, Merry Clayton, Leah McFall, Lisa Fischer, Judith Hill and King’s daughter Louise Goffin. Jimmy Kimmel will host the evening.
