Karen Carpenter's Niece
As a singer she is very talented but she is not in her aunt's league. (But then who is?) She is at least as talented as most other recording artists today. Perhaps comparisons are unfair because no one can fill the shoes of Karen Carpenter; judged on her own personal talent she is quite good. All five of Richard's children will have to be compared to Karen as a singer and that would be intimidating no matter how talented they are. Of course her voice may improve drastically as she learns better vocal control, and she seems to hit the low notes in much the same manner as her aunt. Plus you see a bit of Karen in the area of her eyes, except that they're blue instead of brown.
What intrigues me is the song she chooses to sing.
And that middle-aged guy on the piano is her father, the same Richard Carpenter who accompanied a legend.
Update: This should really be a separate post but in consideration of the spiritual nature of young Miss Carpenter's performance, I will attach it here. I just lost an Uncle and he was very close to my Father. It was without warning and was a heart attack. He was my Dad's older brother. Please pray for my father.
