Karen was the voice of the multi-hit making group The Carpenters who along with her brother Richard, scored an unprecedented seventeen consecutive billboard US top ten hits.

Karen Carpenter had a unique voice, so unique in fact that it has proven almost impossible to duplicate its deep smoky emotional edge, creating that uniqueness that is so hard to perfect. Now for the very first time in over thirty years the voice that melted a thousand romantic hearts lives again through Toni Lee, in this 2-hour touring concert show.

We’ve Only Just Begun is a celebration of the Carpenter’s music and the spirit of Karen Carpenter.
