Among those who performed in this pre-Grammys event and in order to give a musical nod to the iconic songwriter were Leann Rimes in duet with Steven Tyler, Jennifer Nettles, Lady Gaga, Zac Brown, Kacey Musgraves and Stuart Duncan.

Others on the MusiCares stage to fete Carole King were James Taylor, Jennifer Nettles, Amy Grant, Martina McBride, Sara Bareilles and Merry Clayton. So were Jakob Dylan, Gloria Estefan, Lisa Fischer, Louise Goffin, Judith Hill, Jesse & Joy, Alicia Keys, Darlene Love, Leah McFall, Miguel, Jason Mraz, James Taylor, Train, and will.i.am.

Among those celebrities in the crowd to herald King were everyone from Hilary Duff, Kristen Chenoweth, and Yoko Ono.

Carole King was singled out for this honor, as the MusicCare site, due to "her extraordinary creative accomplishments as well as her significant charitable work, which has included an impressive range of philanthropic activities over the years."

The honorarium was given to all of Carole King's admirable work, from offering musical works in a long career to being "actively involved with environmental organizations in support of forest wilderness preservation as well as a range of political causes."

By way of background, MusiCares has honored other luminaries for the Person of the Year award. Among the past winners were Barbra Streisand, Elton John, Paul McCartney, and Aretha Diamond, among many other musical greats.

And so, as MusiCares Person Of The Year 2014 gala honors the legendary Carole King, a slew of fellow musicians were on hand to show their respect, their love, their approval, and their care for the talent who had so many baby boomers listening to "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" — and then wondering if that would be a true statement come the morning after.
