Carole King Drops 'One Small Voice,' Song She Wrote in 1982!

Carole King has just released a song called “One Small Voice” that she wrote in 1982, but is first making public 35 years later.

The legendary singer-songwriter explained in a HuffPo op-ed piece that she was inspired to release the song after the Women’s March.

“I wrote the words and music for the song ‘One Small Voice’ in 1982. More than two decades later I re-recorded it because I wanted a version without synthesizers. I had forgotten about the second recording until January 20, 2017,” Carole wrote. “On January 21, 2017 men, women, and children of all ages with a variety of political views marched peacefully in ‘Women’s Marches’ on seven continents around the world. I marched in a snowstorm in Stanley, Idaho (pop. 63) with 29 other people comprising half the town. I carried a handmade sign that said ‘One Small Voice’ because I’ve never stopped believing that one small voice plus millions of other small voices is exactly how we change the world.”

“I’m making the updated recording of ‘One Small Voice’ available to everyone because it will take the strength and persistence of many small voices to overcome the lies of the loudest voice with our message of truth, dignity, and decency,” she added.
