Subject: Karen Carpenter Sound A-Like

I recently discovered Sue Nixon. She is a local vocalist in the Seattle area. Remarkably, very remarkably she sounds like Karen. I could not believe it when I heard her on a Bob Rivers gag Christmas CD. Reference song "Merry Christmas Allah." Anyway, can you pass on Sue's name to Richard? If you or anyone can, maybe he will produce the great sound of the Carpenters (featuring Sue Nixon) once again. There are so many of us that miss the sounds that Karen and her brother made. In these times, we need them now more than ever. Please connect them, for all of us.

I've heard of Sue Nixon. She released an album of Christian Hymns about 2 years ago. She does have a very nice voice, and maybe even sound somewhat like Karen, but definitely not comprable to Karen Carpenter. Karen is a one and only who had such a very distinctive unique voice. I've heard so many sound a likes throughout my years and they all fall short of the very sincere quality that Karen possessed.
there was more to Karen than just the voice. It was the overall package with Karen. She was an excellent drummer. she had an interesting personality - she was feminine yet somewhat a tomboy. She was also unusual looking, I mean she was very attractive, but she also had an unusual quality in her looks. Even the clothes she wore weren't typical. Karen was just one unusual girl all the way around. She's so Unusual.
Nobody can ever replace Karen.

Agree with you, all the way around. However, this might be a shot for Richard to at least recreate the sound, if not exactly. No one wants to replace Karen. She was to inspirational. However, Sue would be a compliment to a distinctive sound that only one (Karen) can achieve but, others could once again appreciate. It is a need to hear these sounds again, that can be filled for so many others. The fans are what signified the appreciation that Richard and Karen both deserved for their talents. It was pure meloncholly to desire a repeat performance. Just did not want to wait to get to heaven to listen to her sing again. Selfish as it is, the sincerity was purely form the heart. I know you understand this as others already do.

I do know where you're coming from. I really do miss Karen's voice and the sound K&R made together. If only to have her back on Earth for a day what a wonderful gift that would be.
Sue Nixon has a wonderful voice and what I've read of her she seems to be a very nice and interesting person. It might be interesting if she and Richard were to team together.
Richard really does need that special voice to work with. I think Norah Jones and Richard Carpenter could possibly work very well together. Norah has a very unique and wonderful voice.

A lot of people are so overwhelmed by that VOICE that they all wanted to sound like Karen. Here, in Manila, we have a Karen Carpenter of the Philippines. Her name is Claire dela Fuente. She was very popular in the late seventees. She is also very open to the fact that she imitates karen's voice and that she is a die hard Karen fan. There was even a rumour right after karen;'s death that Richard was scouting for a new lead singer. Reportedly, a local record executive brought Claire dela Fuente's tapes to Richard, listened to Claire singing Love Me for What I Am (a huge hit here), upon hearing the tape, Richard cried....Years later, he was supposed to have a concert here, with a local artist doin the vocals, but the concert was cancelled. It was already anticipated by a lot of people at that, but it didnt pushed through...Too bad

I agree with you Rafael as we are both from manila. Claire dela Fuente to my opinion is the only one nearing Karen's voice. Even better than Akiko Kobayashi. How can download her voice for you guys to check out. Claire is not much into singing these days, she's into transportation business but occational sings on TV

Don't worry, I heard she's coming out with a new album featuring all new original songs. But in the site, you will soon be able to download some of her mp3s soon. I should know, I made the site. Don't worry, I am also writing her songs for her new album. E-mail me if you want.

I recently saw a girl called Heather Dee in Blackpool u.k.
she sang various songs, but she told me she used to be in a carpenters cover band.
she sang a couple , and was brilliant, and a lovely person as well.
she told me her web address www.heatherdee.com if you are interested.
