Live from New York's Rockefeller Plaza, King and Taylor performed 'Up on the Roof,' trading vocal duties on the 1962 hit song written by King and her husband Gerry Coffin and recorded by the Drifters. They followed up with a rendition of Taylor's 'Your Smiling Face.'
The legendary artists were enthusiastic as they performed each other's songs, an observation that wasn't lost on 'Today' host Matt Lauer, who took the pair aside for a short interview. "Musically, as well as songwriters and singers, we're cats, we're players, we love playing behind each other," King told Lauer of their emotional musical reunion. Taylor added, "For me, to look across the stage and see Carol there, it's just like your life is right there in front of you."
Taylor and King are headed to California next for the last leg of their tour, before making their way to Europe (dates to be announced). Their CD/DVD 'Live at the Troubadour' is available now.
