Watch The Authentic And Unique Sound Of The Carpenters, Performed By Lisa Rock
Created by singer and playwright Lisa Rock, Close to You celebrates and commends the music of 1970s singing duo, The Carpenters, whose sound gained much acclaim and success after the band stopped making music. The night will consist of authentic and mesmerizing music that does The Carpenters signature sound proud.
The Carpenters were not always popular, but after Karens death in 1983, Richard continued to release the duos music and the band begun to receive critical acclaim. This was partly due to a film archivist creating a short video that consisted of several vintage clips of the pair.
After this, several documentaries were created in the US, UK and Japan that documented The Carpenters. The duos clean cut image that was not respected during their time gained new notoriety. Karen Carpenter has been stated as one of the greatest female vocalists of all time by Rolling Stone and superstar Michael Jackson has claimed the duo to be an influence to him.
