"Hate comes from a lack of love, so we can't fight it with more of its own toxicity, we have to fill it with love," she said. "There are really big things at stake. Things we can't save or solidify or safeguard alone. We have to think bigger, we have to ask for help, we have to reach out to one another and band together. I hope this concert can be an example of that."
King wrote such songs as "The Loco-Motion," ''One Fine Day" and "I'm into Something Good" with her former husband Gerry Goffin.
