Karen Carpenter, 1950-1983 She had the best voice. I still sing along to her music. A Mid West girl who made it big and was pressured to lose weight. (She must have been a size 6 at the most.) You're missed Karen!

Karen Carpenter. Best female voice ever.  If I could ever sing half as well as her, I'd be happy.  Gone far too soon.
