VIDEO: BEAUTIFUL's Chilina Kennedy Previews Tonight's Free Central Park Concert

Broadway star Chilina Kennedy stopped by News 4 New York over the weekend to talk about her role in the musical, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Watch the appearance below!

"She was so lovely and she surprised all of us when she came to the show," says the actress of meeting legendary musician Carole King. "She was extremely gracious, played piano, told stories and we had a really wonderful time."

The actress also previewed the musical's free concert, taking place tonight in Central Park's Rumsey Playfield from 7-10 pm. (Doors open at 6 pm) Click here for more information.

Kennedy made her Broadway debut as 'Mary Magdalene' in Des McAnuff's 2012 revival of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, which also enjoyed lengthy runs at the Stratford Festival of Canada and theLa Jolla Playhouse. Her other credits include the orginal cast of A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER at Hartford Stage and the Old Globe, as well as the national tour of MAMMA MIA!. Most recently, she lead the cast of Theatre Aquarius' MARY POPPINS. Kennedy's additional regional credits include Ross Petty's THE LITTLE MERMAID panto, Stratford's WEST SIDE STORY and A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO FOROUM, the world premiere of THE LORD OF THE RINGS in Toronto and others.

The current Broadway cast of Beautiful also includes Scott J. Campbell as 'Gerry Goffin', Tony Award-nominees Anika Larsen, Jarrod Spector, Liz Larsen, and Paul Anthony Stewart.

Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice. Beautiful tells the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation."
