Gerry Goffin, a prolific and multi-dimensional lyricist who with his then-wife and songwriting partner Carole King wrote such hits as "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," ''(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," ''Up on the Roof" and "The Loco-Motion," died early Thursday at his home in Los Angeles. He was 75.

The Broadway musical Beautiful, based on Carole King’s life and music, was just nominated for eight Tony Awards, including a best actress nod for the show's star, Jessie Mueller. Which isn't surprising – like Jersey Boys, this jukebox musical features popular hit tunes from the '60s and '70s that were written by King, who's either written or co-written 118 songs that have made the Billboard Hot 100 since 1960.

Every year, the Recording Academy chooses a recipient for its annual MusiCares Person of the Year award, in honor of a musician's creative achievements and charitable works.
When it was announced that this year's honoree would be four-time Grammy winner Carole King, whose 1971 seminal album Tapestry has sold over 25 million copies worldwide (and who is the subject of a current Broadway musical called Beautiful), PEOPLE asked if Alicia Keys could say a few words about King, 71, whom she considers both an inspiration and a friend.
Keys, 32, herself a 14-time Grammy winner who is currently up for the R&B album of the year, readily agreed.
