Carole King was honored on Wednesday night at the White House with the fifth Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, the first woman to receive the award.

President Obama opened the evening with a statement on the tragedy in Oklahoma and followed calling King a 'living legend' (see video below). King then took the stage to sing Beautiful from Tapestry before giving the stage over to a group of artists performing her music.
