Subscribe to Alicia Keys alerts

Christmas has come early for beloved singer/songwriter Carole King - she is to be honoured with the 2,486th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on the day before Alicia Keys, Katy Perry and others pay tribute to her at a charity concert.

The hitmaker will unveil her sidewalk plaque on 3 December (12) just across the street from The Dolby Theatre, where she will be feted the following evening (04Dec12) at the A Celebration of Carole King and Her Music benefit for Paul Newman's The Painted Turtle Camp, which will be co-hosted by Jack Nicholson and Quincy Jones.

The star will be the latest in a long line of accolades for King, who was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1987 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. She and her songwriting partner Gerry Goffin were also honoured by The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in 2004 with the GRAMMY Trustees' Award.

King was awarded the Songwriter Hall of Fame Mercer Founder Award in 2002 and in 2004 the Library of Congress named her album Tapestry to the National Recording Registry.

At the end of the last century, King was named one of the 100 Most Important Women in Rock by Vh1.
