Carole King's Gershwin Prize Awarded By President Barack Obama - The Huffington Post WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama, saluting Carole King's five decades as an award-winning singer-songwriter, said Wednesday that music often is a place where people seek comfort and inspiration during trying times. Two days after much of Moore, Okla., was flattened by a powerful tornado that killed 24 people, Obama pledged anew that the nation will assist with the town's recovery and rebuilding for as long as it takes. "Eventually, life will go on and new memories will be made. New laughter will come. New songs will be sung," he said during a tribute concert for King in the East Room of the White House. Calling her a "living legend," Obama presented King with this year's Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, an award given by the Library of Congress. "I'm honored to be recognized by the Library of Congress as the fifth recipient and first woman as has been stated," the 71-year-old King said. King also sang "I Believe in Loving You," co-written with Hal David. Online:

Guido of Arezzo Statue of Guido in Arezzo Guido of Arezzo's house with plaque Guido was a monk of the Benedictine order from the Italian city-state of Arezzo. Recent research has dated his Micrologus to 1025 or 1026; since Guido stated in a letter that he was thirty-four when he wrote it,[1] his birthdate is presumed to be around 991 or 992. His early career was spent at the monastery of Pomposa, on the Adriatic coast near Ferrara. While there, he noted the difficulty that singers had in remembering Gregorian chants. Guido is credited with the invention of the Guidonian hand,[2][3] a widely used mnemonic system where note names are mapped to parts of the human hand. The computer music notation system GUIDO music notation is named after him and his invention. See also[edit] References[edit] External links[edit]
