(WENN) - Katy Perry, Alicia Keys and John Legend were among the acts who saluted Carole King's legacy by performing her greatest hits at a star-studded tribute concert on Tuesday.

Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito and Quincy Jones shared hosting duties throughout the Celebration of Carole King & Her Music show at The Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The venue chosen for the concert is located across the street from where the songwriting legend landed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday.

Celebrity fan Perry covered King's ballad "So Far Away" and Legend sang "You've Got a Friend," while Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Darlene Love and Jesse McCartney also joined the line-up.

Keys' duet with King on "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" received a rapturous response from the audience and earned the duo a standing ovation.

In a post on Twitter.com, King writes, "Grateful for tonight's honor, the great talent joining me, & the chance to help Painted Turtle CA provide such a special place."

Proceeds from the event will be donated to Paul Newman's The Painted Turtle Camp, for kids with serious illnesses and their families.
