Karen Carpenter


Putting myself out there… but I’m a sucker for the absolute sumptuousness of Karen Carpenter’s voice. I imagine there were lots of kids like me that grew up in a house where the parents played the Carpenters and I don’t know whether it’s because of this early imprinting or just the quality of her voice, but as an adult, I’ve ended up with a deep appreciation for her vocals. And she played the drums too! Really wish she ‘d been able to get a handle on her eating issues and was still around today.
