She had the most unforgettable, irreplaceable, unmatchable
and instantly recognizable voice to ever grace the airwaves.


What many people from all over the world on the internet say about Karen Carpenter :


Never was there a richer, warmer female voice and never has there been since

the most beautiful voice that god ever put into a human being

she had the most hauntingly beautiful voice i've EVER heard

Karen Carpenter had one of the most beautiful tone qualities of any singer

Karen Carpenter, God rest her soul, had the most beautiful voice in the history of pop music

On the 8th day God created Karen A Carpenter!
I am glad She stop by.

My all time fav female "voice" is Karen Carpenter. ...

Karen Carpenter's voice was that of an angel on earth

I really don't understand how she sings like that. It's so clear, sharp, and
sounds so unreal. Her voice is the eigth wonder of the world.

, but the inspiration of Nicholas Cage, who thinks Karen Carpenter's voice "was the most beautiful voice
of all time."

Karen carpenter!!! the voice never to be matched!!!

Karen Carpenter had by far, without a shadow of a doubt the best voice ever recorded! No one will
ever come close to that angelic, pure, beautiful sound ever again. She was unique and has inspired
many other "divas" such as Gloria Estefan and Madonna, and Miss Shania Twain ... all 3 have been
quoted as saying that Miss Karen was the singing inspiration growing up. So there u have it ... not at
all hard to choose the number one singer of all time. Enough said!

Her voice is like no other. I haven't heard any other female vocalist that comes close to her.

May I also add that Karen Carpenter's voice sounded so angelic that she singlehandedly parted and
opened the heavens so the Gods and angels could hear her ...

no matter how many problems you have on your shoulders to carry on, when you
listen to her songs, it will seem that there's nothing in this world to be worried about,
her voice was so calm and soothing,.and in the cold days and nights, she's the one,
her voice, that keeps the hour warm,,..
she's the one who sang so soft in the midst of this noisy world, and the world had
learned to recognize the voice w/c brings calmness in every minute that passes by!!!!
miss you Karen!!
terribly!

God has her as his lead female vocalist up there...

God asked his angels to find the most beautiful little canary whom to sing to him daily. They found
someone better and sent him Karen!

The most beautiful voice God ever created!

No one, not anyone, ever, can sing like her. Incredible

She could reach down into your soul and leave her mark on it!
R.I.P.

There is something so touching, soothing and comforting about Karen's voice...something
I have yet to hear another singer come close to. When I hear the yearning in her voice, the
perfect intonation and the "presence" of her voice, it sends chills down my spine just about
each and every time. Singers that "shriek" or "flutter" like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey
or Celine Dion do not ellict such feelings, even though, granted, they do have good control
over their respective voices. For overall sound, in my humble opinion, Karen was (and is)
in a league of her own.

This is singing! The rest is all trying to...

Yes. Millions of fans around the world can agree to this simple FACT: That Karen
Carpenter had the MOST BEAUTIFUL singing voice the earth has ever had the
pleasure of hearing & knowing for a brief time... Her voice gets a "PERFECT 10
RANKING!"
Believe me; I'm a pretty harsh critic and no group, band or solo artist ever gets
a 10 ranking - Not even Mariah Carey or Christina Aguilera, which get a 9 out
of 10 ranking.
Karen's life, voice & music will live on in our hearts FOREVER + EVER!

"Karen Carpenter had the voice of an angel. There will never be another like her. Her passion, natural
talent, and the emotion with which she sang can never ...

Karen Carpenter had by far, without a shadow of a doubt the best voice ...

I still from time to time set and listen to Karen Carpenter sing. She really did have the voice of an angel
and I bet she sings in heaven to the other ...

Nobody's voice was better ... angels can sing, I imagine they would sound like Karen Carpenter

Karen indeed sang as an angel while here on this earth and no doubt is ... Karen Carpenter: The most
"beautiful" voice in the world. what else can I say? ...

Most amazing voice ever, Flawless.

Only great singers can be recognized from the first note that they sing. Bing had it,
so did Sinatra, Ella and yes Karen Carpenter. Whenever I hear that perfectly flowing
voice I think of an american flag gently waving in the wind.

God.. that voice. It's beyond perfection - no words....

There is a chorus of angels in heaven sounding even better because
of the talents of Karen.

Karen was, indeed, the greatest singer of all time for her genre, easy listening. I could
try to compare her to greats of other genres like R & B, or hip hop, and then Mariah
or Whitney would enter my mind, or how about Celine? I guess we can't compare
apples to oranges. It's hard, for that reason, to pick a single best singer that ever
lived. I guess, though, if I were to hear all the genres that exist, and hear the best,
I'd still pick Karen doing easy listening, the best of the best.

Isn't it amazing? The first word, 'after,' is just so pure and perfect, leading into an
equally impeccable song. She is the greatest singer that ever lived.

the voice i would die for....i will bargain anything i have just to have her voice and
to listen to it live once again...ohhh...what a voice.... for me its golden, crystal clear
voice that cannot be match...forever.

WOOOOOOOAH

MAn I loved her voice

Nothing against the 2 fremale singers I know of who make a living singing Karen's
songs " almost like Karen herself ", but truly, no one else can ever come close to
this magnificent voice, & Rich's flawless, note-perfect productions. Miss you Karen!

Shania is a vocal talent to be sure, but I don't think even she could take a run at Karen.

There are NO FEMALE VOCALISTS TODAY that can even begin to THINK of
approaching Karen. Hers was a voice beyond all definition, and Time.
Rest peacefully, Karen- only heaven itself can be your sound stage, and the stars
your spotlights...

Tears are falling down whem i'm listening? to this song.

beautiful voice. but in my opinion, can't compare to the amazingness or magic of
karen's voice.

Totally awesome voice, glad we sill have her music.

The most beautiful,pristine mainstream female voice ever to grace our ears.There
will never be another like her.

God her voice is absolutely perfect.... Perfect.

Karen's voice WAS up there with Streisand, even at the time. Even surpassed it, I think.

A voice like a finely-tuned violin. God truly blessed Karen Carpenter with a golden
voice. And she thanked Him by sharing it with the world.

Absolutely Flawless. She has the perfect voice !

what a great talent GOD gave this woman ,, Even on every live show they did their
musicianship never faltered . NEVER amazing to be so consistent they were . Karen
never used tricks or extreme sounds when she sang . what gets me is every song
she sings she is always in control of her voice but in the controlled sound comes
magic . her phrasing . and so legato never rough or jerky . but also the feeling is
transcended to our ears? and we are smitten . A UNIQUE ONE WAS SHE

It's been said before but there is a subtle almost sad or longing in her voice. She had the
real thing; the thing that cannot be faked. All of the great ones had it. I think she had a
wonderful voice technically but it was her ability, an effortless unconcious ability, to connect
it with her soul that makes you feel what she sings...... BEAUTIFUL.... I miss you Karen.....

I love KAREN CARPENTER! I think she is one of the best singers of all time. Voice of an angel that one

The tragic Karen Carpenter had the voice of an angel and for easy listening there is no-one to compare with the Carpenters.

I love Karen Carpenter. Laugh if you must, but there it is. I love her soulful voice and the fact that she is
often imitated but never, in my opinion, has anyone managed to duplicate her unique, truly one of a kind
voice.

There are many great singers and many great voices, but KC's voice is perhaps
the most purely beautiful of them all. It's just a perfect thing.

Incredibly crystal clear voice, perfect pitch.

I forgot how perfect her voice was. She could sing anything.

She is just so so smooth. Unlike many other artists, I can listen to her songs
over and over; never grow tired of them!

I remember a time when I was younger, and my dad gave me a little cassette of Karen Carpenter. I
had never really heard a proper female singer before, and I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I
finished hearing the tape.

The best female voice ever !
1) Karen Carpenter
2) The Rest

One of the great melancholy voices of all time.

Oh Karen...Heaven's Child.

No one & I mean No one will ever be able to replace the most beautiful
voice God gave to Karen Carpenter.

ATTENTION PEOPLE:
FORGET all the NO-TALENT, NO CLASS 'reality stars.'
THIS is what a human with CLASS looks like.

She died on my birthday so I've always celebrated her LIFE with mine... an
awesome woman of courage and beauty. Now you are in heaven fully restored,
vibrant and still spreading the joy of that beautiful voice! Always remembered
dear woman!! xoxoxoxo

such a golden voice. GOLDEN.

her voice has a way of soothing your nerves when you are troubled

she was and IS the best female vocalist of all times. We miss her!! Rest in peace

Man, I just love her voice.

In this song, Karen's voice is like a warm blanket draped around my shoulders,
and the comforting cup of coffee between my fingers on a gray, windswept,
loveless November afternoon. When I hear her sing, I feel someone truly
understood the loneliness in my soul. Loneliness of the heart can be cured by
love, loneliness of the soul overshadows you all the days of your life, and you
cannot shake it off. But at least in Karen I have a kindred spirit. I have always
loved her and always will.

Her voice is not enhanced like so many!!
Only one takes required to produce an Alban!!
No other singer can say that!!
Thats a fact!!!

Karen has, in my opinion, the most beautiful voice of any women that ever recorded
music. watch any video or listen to any song, she's pitch perfect every time. The
world lost a treasure when she passed. God bless Karen

so sad...she died way too early - if she was alive - she'd only be 59,still singing,
and a Living Legend!

Without you Karen, this earth is like a bird without a song.
One can only fathom the beautiful melodies you had in
your heart that we will never get to hear. Perhaps, someday in heaven.

This song rips my heart out every time I hear it. NO ONE has a voice to match
Karen's. She left us far too soon.

Karen is and will always be, the hottest diva and best female voice ever.

Over a 1000 years, all our so called great singers and voices will long be gone and forgotten
except the voice of one person: Karen Carpenter . People then will still want to hear her voice
as she sings, simply because she was gifted with the most beautifull voice ever created
by God.

so very true. she honestly did not consider herself in the same league with some of the
great singers of her day, when in reality, she surpassed every single one of them in sheer talent

Just the purest voice ever. No theatrics. Just perfect pitch.

of all the female singers past and present nobody like karen carpenter had
such clarity and perfection in her voice . And i now there are some good divas
out to day that do have fantastic voices (eg) christine aguleria and a few others
but not like karen

The best voice ever!

One of the all time great female singers!! She has a velvet voice that always gets to me! Gone
too soon but always remembered!!

Karen had the best , cleanest, richest voice of any female vocalist I've ever heard in my entire life !!!

Her voice is overwhelming...absolutely love it.

jeez that voice is beyond human its beautiful

I really miss this kind of pure talent! Karen was truly a gifted singer. Sooo sad she left us too
early. I love to sing her songs because it seems nobody is singing them!
With all the un-talented people making it in the music industry having undeserved fame cause
they're cute or have a nice body or can dance a little. The young female artist out today need
to take a look @ Karen Carpenter (real, raw, pure, talent) Take notes young ladies!! You are
truly missed Karen (R.I.P)

Karen couldn't mess a song up if she tried. As always, PERFECTION!!!!

The simply effortless beauty of Karens' voice will live forever in the hearts of anyone who
appreciates talent and music.

MY GOD that VOICE! one of a kind, never equaled, never has there been a female singer who
has the quality of her voice, her diction, her emotion, her touching intimate style, the sense
she is singing to you and you alone and there right next to you in the room. and it seem to be
so effortless to in her delivery! truly one of those talents and ablities that one is just born with
and that is meant for the world to know about and appreciate and love forever!

As for female voices, really, there was none finer than Karen. She'll always be missed.

karen lives on in generations of families. she sings so beautifully you can relate to the lyrics in such
a powerful way. rip karen. you are the best!!!!!!

Unbelievable.

The music is still a cool representation of my deepest feelings. Karen will always be my idol. With every
word and every sentence she is the best. You can never beat pure class.

I'm 46, too, and will always love Karen and her voice.

Words fall short of the feelings while i hear her and see this video. Her voice has immense gravity. I
certainly wish to visit the same place shown here one day. There is a tremendous sadness in her
voice which sound sweet one feels to drift away in her emotions. It was twenty years back when i
heard this song and trust me it still is afresh and draws me back in those times. Long Live Karen
She is god's Soul

she was one of the greatest singers ever. I lover her singing. unmistable voice. angelical sound.

Karen was an Angel send to earth for a short time for us to enjoy. She gave us hope and joy with
her angelical voice.

god only lets his angels go for a short time, and the very special ones he calls back to him leaving
their mark imprinted for all to remember.

A totally one of a kind voice - the voice of an angel...

I was watching a documentary very recently on Karen Carpenter - who in my opinion had the
best voice of any female singer ever, and who was also one of the prettiest

the music and her and her voice were simply superlative

When God created Karen Carpenter's angelic voice, he truly broke the mold.

Karen's voice will always be the sweetest, most beautiful to these ears. She was one in a forever.

Thank you Karen by helping me through the bad days, and knowing that all I have to do, is put a cd in to
listen to the best female voice ever. ...

Karen Carpenter had the best voice ever by far. She could sing the phone book and it would sound fantastic.

The most fascinating thing about Karen's voice is that it is completely pure …

This page is dedicated to Karen Carpenter, the greatest female vocalist the world ...

That's the voice... that's it... simply beautiful.

i can not belive she has gone she had the most wonderfull voice i ever heard i grew up with the
carpenters and thats all i play now at the age 37 she will always be rememeberd

Karen Carpenter is the best singer that there ever will be!!!!!!

She was the best singer of all time.

Karen Carpenter was a gift to the world from God. Her beautiful voice and her spirit is a blessing
in my life everytime I listen to her music!

I have never heard anyone who can sing like Karen. Listening to Karen makes you feel in heaven.

A voice of pure Silk - and one of the Greatest!!

Karen has a unique voice.. there's never been another like her.

"The Voice"...
The one and only....

After listening to her voice more times than I can count, it still send chills up my
spine. She touches the soul like no other singer.

a lot of singers sound the same these days, but she is definitely an
original. no one has her beautiful voice.

If I had to listen to one voice the rest of my life it would be Karen's. Nobody but
nobody has to the incredble tones and sells a song like Karen did. Tremendously
soothing voice.

GReatest singer of all time. What an incredible voice. Unmatched.

No One can sing like this lady!

Karen is a vocal goddess and she will truly be missed.

unbelievable voice

She's the best singer in the world.

If I were younger, Id marry this beauty! She has such a velvety voice and i know
she could sing me to sleep! I miss you Karen Carpenter!

purest of the pure!

Her voice has so much texture. There are so many colors to it.

RIP karen...your talent and spirit lives on by those of us who love you...
i miss you!

Hey cmon she was best vocalist of all time no doubt.

I wish "singers" nowadays would sing like that...

OMG! Like the most phenomenal female vocalist in human history.

Amazing beautiful song and performance......BTW, she recorded this song in only
one take...wow!!!!

Words cannot convey the emotion she sang with!!!

Exactly, I find myself fighting tears listening to the amazing woman sing.

When an angels sings........

Truly the voice of an angel, taken from us before her time. God Bless You Karen R.I.P

Her voice is hauntingly beautiful.

The best female vocalist ever in my opinion. Don't know who else has an 8 octave
voice. Music like this will never be heard again.

Thank you for all you gave the world.
I will love you forever

Truly the voice of an angel:):):):):)

words cant describe how fucking amazing karen carpenters voice is : ) : ) : )

She was an angel that visited us for a while- the best feamle voice of the last 100 years.....

This song kills me. I never get sick of it.

no no... this girl is one of a kind. She had a gift. Her voice can hypnotize any one!

I don't believe in angels or in God but Karen's voice does sound divine.

So sad she left us. Beautiful voice...no one compares..

she had no equal when it came to clarity and feelings...

The most beautiful voice ever. I am old enough to remember her very
well and cried when she died. Yes a man does cry. I am lucky enough
to have all their songs on records, and cassettes.

the great always die young, what a waste, Karen was an angel from God , a true talent
from above and a voice the angels needed back,,

Incredible how her voice comes through even from such a low quality clip...

goes straight to my heart every time I listen to it. They don't make music like this nowadays..

She is my best singer of all time. What an angel. I love all her songs. Greatest voice ever.

The sounds of my youth! The best singer ever!!

Want this song to go on forever.

I think her voice is the best ever.

I have to say she has the best voice I have ever heard on a person....hands down!

Karen Carpenter is my all-time favorite singer. She had the most beautiful voice of any voice ever.

her music has helped me more that she will ever know!

its precious the Karen's voice, God make this voice and she sing to God in the heaven now.

she is the best singer that existed in the world history. i don´t know why she´s not recognise as one of
the best singers

simply the best

Best female singer there ever was.

Beautiful unique voice.

Voice of an angel!! Love her....

Karen the most amazing voice that we humans had ever heard, She is now singing to God and his angels.

Thank you God for letting us have Karen Carpenter for the brief period you allowed for her to dwell on
Planet Earth. Folks, listen to her. Now, listen to the American Idol crap we're being spoon-fed these days.

her voice makes me my whole body melt,as much as i love celine and barabara, they just cant make me
quiver with goose bumps as karen does...

2 words...incomparable and irreplaceable!!! :)

I agree she has the best voice ever.

... because she is brill and had the best voice possible.

Totaly Brilliant !!!

When I heard this song for the first time i started to think who can sing sooo wonderful...i put the
internet on it´s head and searched for the name of this group and read The Carpenters...I love them
more than all!

r.i.p. karen. you were the best.

John Lennon and Paul McCartney were both BIG admirers of Karen's voice.

... because she is the best!

There is no-one who can even come close to that wonderful voice and beautiful spirit.

Karen Carpenter is a remarkable person and singer. Her voice is heaven sent. In my opinion, there
is no other that can touch my soul and my heart the way her voice does. She will forever be the best
diva in my heart!

She's the greatest. Her songs will live on in her memory for ever.

She sings like an angel---and she's with them now... Love her!!

This is my favorite single of all time from my favorite musical group. If I ever get married, I intend to take
my bride dancing to this record at our reception.

the most beautiful voice in pop music history

DEFINITELY in the top 5 of best female voices of all time. right up there with patti labelle, diana ross,
billie holiday, she did have something special that hasn't been seen since.

karen' voice will never be duplicated in music history. she is the greatest. i suppose she registered the
lowest note in a female voice

All I can say is that their music is absolutely timeless; the beauty of it truly transcend time and space.

Karen's voice is angelic!

There will never be another Karen Carpenter. Many consider Karen to be one the finest female vocalists
of all-time. Her voice has the ability to reach into the darkest recesses of your inner being and tug on the
strings of your emotions. Until you are nothing but utterly amazed at the extreme beauty of her God given
voice.

The greatest vocalist of all time.

AWESOME VOICE!!

i remember when this was first released i was just a littlekid and i love it still
nothing tops her voice and never will. SO DEAL WITH IT.

Heartbreakingly perfect vocals.

Timeless music. Only dumb people are the ones who can't appreciate her voice.

karen is truly the standard by which all artists are rated.

THE greatest female singer ever no contest every single word can be understood clearly with such
feeling so sadly missed .

This is my mom and dad's wedding song.

totally agree best female singer of all time

YES - yes yes - the Carpenters are #1 all-time in my book, and this is one of my favorite songs by
them. I agree, she is the best female singer ever. Sure stands out from all the crap of today. She didn't
have to show off her vocal range like a bad gospel singer, she just sang, STRAIGHT - and it was
absolute perfection.

Her musical reading was superb, unsurpassed. It's so sad we never will know how she had sung at 40
or 50 years of age.

So what. She's the best of all time!!

Karen possessed one of the most uniquely haunting voices there will ever be, and it is destined to live
forever.

amen on all counts. greatest female vocalist of all time.

Amazing

When I was a child and through my teens, there was one voice that was always there. Well, not always
there, but always available when the thousand things I'm always thinking about would get thought out,
when the hundreds of adjustments to be made were completed, when the tens of friends would be off
friending with other people, when a handful of moments were there solemn and for the taking.
The voice belonged to Karen Carpenter.

the voice of an angel..

Karen could sing to me anytime she wanted to. Anything she sang would be beautiful.

Excellent!!!

Who gives a shit what she pronounces wrong. I wish I could listen to her sing the freaking phone book!!!
Everyone's dumbass critic and Karen had the voice of the century. Sorry, Babs.

What an incredible talent... She truly had an angelic voice!

Karen's voice can make any song sound great.

Awwwwwwwwww - Karen had such a beautiful, clear as a bell voice.

I think she has one of the most beautiful and genuine voices I've ever heard.

Karen's voice is impeccable, beyond beautiful.

One of the greatest ever female voices Karen Carpenter smooth and crystal clear.

She had a beautiful God-given voice, and a sweet spirit. She and her brother
Richard performed and perfected some of the loveliest records of all time.

is there a female with a better voice?

her vocal tone was angelic in its purity

Over 30 years and she STILL gives me goosebumps. No better combination of voice and beauty. One of
my first crushes. Just for a minute it was the early 70s and I was in my moms car and life was good
with Karen on the radio.

What a beautiful voice.

so much talent out there but Karen is number one,

Great voice, never heard a voice like hers again, did you?

yeah. like petula clark would say: she has "a voice of a angel"

The most beautiful voice ever!

Karen Carpenter was, in my mind, the most extraordinary, natural talent. She was born a diva.
Regrettably, her life was cut short. But if she had lived, she would have enjoyed many more years
of success (I don't doubt that for a second). And she was no prima donna - she was a class act in the
truest sense of the word (Some other divas could take a lesson from her on this point)! In my
opinion, I would even call her a legend.

yeah..perfect voice!

karen's voice was a rare and perfect singing sound that still pierces my heart.

your always in my heart karen...RIP

Vocally, she is just the purest female there is. There may be others who can do more 'showy' things
and 'vocal acrobatics', but to cut to the chase, Karen is the best!

her voice was beautifull. god took away a great beauty

Karen could sing ANYTHING and make it sound better than ANYTHING else sung by ANYBODY else!
What an angelic voice. I will never get tired of it.

She could sing like no one else ever!

My God, NOBODY can touch this vocal!!

Richard and Karen gave us some of the best music ever.

god took her so she can sing for him up there forever :) lovely voice

The greatest voice in the world! And heartbreaking eyes ...

I have always enjoyed her fantastic voice. She was one in a million. There will never be another Karen.
She touched people with her voice including me.

She is the best singer I've ever heard.

Especially Karen's voice in most of her ballads is like the voice of an ANGEL to me that goes straight
into my heart, that's probably why ' Close To You ' is still the most played song on weddings all over
the world,

Great singer & talent. No one since has sounded like her.

I think that Karen is one of the most perfect female voices in pop music of all times, and The Carpenters
were one of the groups with much musical quality.

Listen to that voice. You'll always recognize it!

another classic from Karen, man she had the sweetest voice,

I think her singing voice is absolutely fabulous, magnificent, and amazing, especially when she
sings the low notes.

Her voice is like silk, I've grown up being calmed and soothed by her voice. She's one in a million.

Her lower register shakes the world!!!

this woman had so much soul (in the non-traditional, non-R&B sense). it was pure pop no doubt, but
she intoned every song with such feeling. perfect pitch that really showcases the awesome simplicity of
the melodies. Richard deserves a great deal of the credit for their sound and success.

Karen, in my heart forever...brings tears to my eyes

She had the most beautiful voice in the world. No one's can compare to hers.

a beautiful singer with the perfect voice.

Majestic!

cos she has the best voice of all time. So warm, intimate, like she's sitting right there in your lap and
singing just for you. Her voice was crystalline, pure and so so sweet. She was an amazing person!

Flawless. I get a lump in my throat when I listen to her. RIP Karen.

Karen had the voice of an angel. Their music was beautiful and never needed to be defended. It has
stood the test of time.

Karen is and will always be, the hottest diva and best female voice ever.

Karen Carpenter had the voice of an angel. There will never be another like her. Her passion, natural
talent, and the emotion with which she sang can never be duplicated. She is the female vocalist of
all time. No one else can ever come close.

Karen's voice is just top of the world.

Her voice is gorgeous. It gets to me every time, especially when she's singing the low notes. There
is so much passion in her voice. When she sings, she sings with her whole soul. That is what I
admire most.

Unique distinctive voice. Perfect performance. Magic, magic, magic. She sings the songs the right
way. She doesn't change the melody to fit her voice as Streisand does. She sings.

... because she had a fantastic voice with little effort, a golden voice!

Effortless - no one else can sing like that. She finds singing easier than most of us find talking.
BEST singer ever. Fact. No argument as far as I am concerned. You may not have to like the music,
but anyone who says Karen Carpenter isn't AT LEAST in the top 5 greatest singers ever doesn't have
the intelligence to form an opinion that is worth listening to.

She had the most unforgettable, irreplaceable, unmatchable and instantly recognizable voice to ever
grace the airwaves.

Great song and one of the greatest singers that ever lived. Always my favorite.

Karen Carpenter's crystal-clear angelic voice lifts me to the seventh Heaven!

You can't touch Karens voice. The quality and tone of her voice is unrivaled to this day.

Karen Carpenter was amazing. She was only 20 years old here, and just listen to her voice. Completely
unique. No one has ever been able to sound like her.

Beautiful voice. One of the all-time bests.

Karen's voice is stunningly beautiful. I've never heard a voice as good, she's my all time favourite
female singer.

all these pop idol and x factor contestants non will ever come close.she absolutely had the most beautiful
female voice of all time.

Probably the best female pop voice of all time. John Lennon once told Karen, "My, what a lovely voice
you have dear."

Her voice is absolutely stunning in its beauty and clarity. It's her soul singing.

God can be so unfair...only he can hear this now.

Perfection as only Karen Carpenter was capable of! The world lost its most beautiful voice when Karen
left us.

When her voice hits that low note near the end...I get goosebumps on my arms...its really one of
Karen Carpenter's purest vocals....beautiful.

Karen, i truly loved your voice, no one ever like you, your undescribable voice, never fade, you're
one of a kind.

A voice that can transform a killer into a saint, a voice that can stop time.

I truly believe that God gave Karen het magnificant voice to bring pleasure to all of us.

Karen voice is to song, what Mozart is to music.

No other human being has brougt more happiness to me or more tears to my eyes then Karen Carpenter.

Karens voice touched me in a way i cant explain, she has the ability to do that.

I have admired many vocalist's over the years and like many others, have been waiting for
a new voice that would match Karen's. But so far, that hasn't happened. Perhaps someone like
Karen Carpenter is born once in a lifetime. I still miss her. Maybe one day we'll get to hear
het again in heaven.

How come nobody can write songs that are great like this anymore? Nothing on the radio today is
going to be missed in 20, 30, or 40 years like this is.

her voice , no one in the entire world had or have something like that she was one of a kind

No voice on the planet is as wonderful.

The purest voice ever...luv ya Karen!!!

I've never heard a better voice and doubt that I ever will.

No lip synch. This IS a studio shot for one thing. They were filming, but in studio and you can see
from inside the control booth at the last shot. Karen was one of those rarities that could walk into a
studio and not have to practice it much less edit it. Most performers can spend an entire day or more
on a single song. Karen rarely needed more than a single take. Second - I was there when it was
recorded. Don't claim lip synch as fact when you have no idea what you are talking about.

She was awesome and her voice really touched my heart and soul.

i have listened to so many versions and renditions of this song but hers is the one that reduced me
to a flood of tears. so angelic and so effortless, so beautiful

I really like the fact that Karen Carpenter is getting some of the recognition that she deserves. I only
wish she was here with us to enjoy it.

just love them, her voice is devine

Karen Carpenter is and will always be my choice for Most Beautiful Female Voice. She
brings tears to my eyes. What a spectacular voice!

She also had one of the most beautiful smiles one can find.

Absolutely the greatest without a doubt.

Even to today, no electronic instument can match her voice.

Karen had something that no other singer can reproduce, and when she left this world she took it
with her, her and the music she made will always truly be missed.

Her soulfull voice and singing way always make me soar to the deepest of my soul.

the closest thing to an angel we'll never see again...

It's the nature of the song. Happy or sad, it moves your emotions and goes deep into
your soul. That's how music works, particularly in a stylr that everyone can identify with.

Karen Carpenter was the greatest wemon singer who ever lived!

She has the most beautiful voice ever on earth, she is one of a kind and I love her and Richard!

A hero in her own right, and a voice like no one else's - and damn, she could play the drums like
nobody's business!

She was an absolute goddess - no contest - with the most fabulous voice ever, no competition at all.

THE BEST FEMALE VOCALIST - A pure soul and spirit. You're right...she needed no SEX or
striptease behavior to sell her product. She was just a mass of BRIGHT LIGHT and her voice
pure and lovely. :)

BEST OF THE BEST

What a great brother and sister duo. Such meaningful songs, whether happy or sad.

Karen had the very best female pop voice that I expect to ever, ever hear.

Love it!!!!!!

Karen you are so beautiful!!! heaven sent voice you have. Please read this on heaven.

Wah! I grew up on that angel voice of hers! The world misses her, terribly!

What a most utterly fantastic and amazing voice.

Karen Carpenter's voice is a gift from god. Too bad she didn't realize that.

and so for me, Karen Carpenters voice will always be the voice of God. I know her life was sad, but
she could not hide her special vision of the earth sparkling in it's unspeakable beauty,

I know you all think I am wierd, but if you have not yet spent a season with Karen Carpenter on
your car cd player, well my darlings, you have not yet lived.

There is no talent like this today.

her voice is better than any blanket

All these years later....and STILL....the best female singing voice ever ~ ! What is it about her?
Maybe she's part "angel" ?? I'll always love Karen ! She was one of the first singers I listened
to as a very small child. :) :)

she sung like angel. and now shes looking down on all creation.....

PURE VOICE from a PURE SOUL. !!

Simply; BEAUTIFUL!

... because she had the best voice of any female singer this world has ever or will ever see. That Voice!

Excellent voice control. Recognizable from the first note. Sophistication and freshness. She could
sing all the classics beautifully.

She had the finest voice in pop music. And because she was nice. She really was the girl next door.
She was you and me. She was the "every girl".

Best female vocalist in the modern ear.

very fine tuning voice of karen nobody else have that even celine dion not

I rather have a fun song which Karen can actually sing compared to these girls who think they
can. And they cant.

A singer - and a sound - to fall in love with forever and ever...

Fabulous song from the finest female singer ever to grace our planet!

I never tire hearing Karens unique beautiful voice.

I think Karen Carpenter had the Sexiest voice I've ever heard. The first time I heard her I got
Goosebumps all over.

the best female singer period!

Her voice was simply "Angelic" One in a billion.

As a singer and songwriter myself, she was classic. What a voice! Loved both of
them and their songs and always will. Karen, you inspire all singers. Look out
Idol. You can't touch this.

Nothing recorded since about 1990 can touch this.

The purest voice ever recorded. Only Celine come's close to Karen.

we will miss you SOOOO MUCHHHH karen!!! the WHOLE world love you!! one death
on lost great singer!! again we all love you!

I'm a 55 year old man sitting here with chills going up and down my arms,and
tears welling up in my eyes.We miss you Karen.

Karen sang like an angel; when she died, the world cost a great performer.

One of the best female vocalists of all time, no doubt!!!

Karen .. the unbeatable queen, she touches everyone who listens to her songs.
She lives on and on in our hearts and minds.

Thank you. If angels had voices, they would sound like Karen Carpenter.

Karen Carpenter was an angel sent from God!

I don't think anyone could ever outsing Karen Carpenter. Her voice is unbeatable.

Karen Carpenter...
What a beautiful woman.
I love her with all my heart!

Karen, your voice is touch our hearts, we love you

The most beautiful, natural and unique voice ever!

The finest female voice in all of pop/rock, ever.

I also am totally into the Runaways, Alice Cooper, Motley Crue and all that
stuff, but NOTHING touches the Carpenters, and nobody touches Karen's perfect voice.

I completely agree that Karen's voice could turn anything into gold.

god took her so she can sing for him up there forever :)

Nobody makes music like this anymore, yes we have moved on but you can't deny
this is just pure gold and we all love it.

Totally and absolutely incomparable, the voice and looks of an angel

I love every bit of the lyrics, the gorgeous arrangement and Karen´s beautiful interpretation!
Applause from a Brazilian admirer.

The Greatest female voice of all time.

Karen is one of a kind, beautiful, no one will ever replace that little lady with a voice that could
move a mountain

Close your eyes and LISTEN to KAREN! Some of you seem to forget the reason these videos are posted.
To honor her and remember the amazing legacy she left us all. She sang this song the way she knew
- That is perfectly fine with me. Bravo Karen Bravo!
Lets hear anyone even come close to her beautiful voice.
Ok - Now I feel better.

She was one of the most underrated american singer ever. Unique voice, great technique,

Comiserations to all who knew her, she truly was the greatest female singer ever :)

The world misses that voice from Heaven. Amazing.

As everyone here has stated, Karen was an angel sent from heaven and this song
reminds me of a time when because of people like her, the world was a far better
world to live in. It was a time when people respected one another and neighbors
were friends and children could play outside. This song makes me cry for the
happier years and cry for the hell our world has become today. We need another
Karen Carpenter.

I will always remember that unique one of a kind sound. Yet to be repeated.

I really miss Karen what a star what a voice!!

what more can I say? It's already been said. That voice is one to be remembered

What an ANGEL !!!

Karen was like an Angel sent to give us music that brough us happiness. I wasn't
even alive when she was singing but i've been brought up on her music as my mother
is a huge fan and well i thank her because i always have a smile even when i'm
down when i listen to her songs.

simply perfect. why can't female singers today sound like her?

one of the best voice ive ever heard! it moves me!

I still feel as though Karen is "The First Lady of All Times...She is greatly missed.

She was not the brightest student in class, but she had the voice of angels. What
a tremendous loss.

this is the best female voice there has ever been,

she must have one of the best voices of all time ....what a singer karen was

You are a very lucky person to have met her. She was an angel and the finest female
singer ever.

Man, Karen's voice is like good therapy for me. It has some kind of correcting effect on
my brain... and I'm a serious hard rocker dude.

Her voice is a miracle

words just can't describe her. She is just so beyond everything! Karen, you left us to soon!

Karen every best voice in the world,amanzing...I love forever

Don't they know it's the End of the World..It Ended when she said good bye!!!!!

i grown up with this beautiful voice singing in my radio.

BeST!!!!!!

I should expect no less from a Zeppelin fan: you know quality when you see it. Ironic note: did
you know that in the seventies, Playboy magazine readers voted Karen as a better drummer
than Bonham. Karen had the most beautiful voice ever recorded, but better on drums than
Bonzo? That's almost sacreligious to even say it.

Didn't Karen have just the best smile ever? Perfect match for the best voice ever.

Nailed it. This is, as close to perfection as anything I have ever heard before.

fantastic just fantastic i wish music now a adys could be this good

voices from heaven....
now it has vanished into thin air....
pity...

The world will always miss Karen Carpenter and her unmistakable voice.

Best voice in the world!

We had God's best and lost it.

The most beautiful voice that ever walked the earth.

No better voice!!!

That's because Karen is incomparable -- which means no comparisons can be made to
her. You can compare all kinds of stuff to Christina. She's run-of-the-mill, created
by her label. Karen was created by a being not of this world.

there has never been a singer with such a beautiful voice as Karens!

Karen is the greatest female singer of all time.

There has not been a quality female vocalist since Karen Carpenter.

I have only to hear her voice to feel good. Tenderness and velvet.

Karen Carpenter was a gift to the world from God. Her beautiful voice
and her spirit is a blessing in my life everytime I listen to her music!

Karen had an absolutely beautiful voice.

If it were poosible to "fall in love" with a voice, Karens' was the one!!!
Her voice was truly magnetizing as well as mesmerising.Her deep, soft
vocals could calm a stormy sea!!! I could listen to her singing all day
long and NEVER tire of it.

Karen Carpenter is the best singer that there ever will be!!!!!!

you have the sweetest voice that i've heard especially the song close to
you. you're the best

Reader comment on: The Most Beautiful Voice in the World?
two words......Karen Carpenter......the voice of an angel.....

her voice is the most lovely I´ve heard

What an incredibly pure and clear voice Karen Carpenter had...what a beautiful song
that still stands the test of time.

beautiful, one of the best singers of all time!

what a relief to see that at one point in history performers actually had the
voice you heard on record. WHat a beautiful voice and great musicianship

She has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard.

Probably the best female voice of all time.

Karen's voice was and still is THE most amazingly beautiful voice in the world.

Golly, that girl could sure sing...I can't think of anyone else who sounds as sincere
and effortless.

Karen was like an Angel sent to give us music that brough us happiness.

Thank you God for Karen Carpenter....her voice always brings me comfort!!!

Best female voice, ever. Totally natural. I still get chills and a lump in my throat, after all these years.

she is the best i ever heard No one can replace her voice.

TOTALLY love Karen's voice and her spirit of song!

.. love karen's voice and no one could replaced her .. some voices can never be replaced ..

No one can sing like Karen. Her voice was so angelic.

i finally understand why karen carpenter had to die so young. it is because she was never
mortal in the first place. she was not even human. it is all too obvious that karen carpenter
was a pure, sweet angel sent straight from heaven.

One of the top 5 female voices in music ever!

one of the best female singers-ever!!!!

like i said .. no one would ever replace her .. some voices can never be replaced .. and karen's
among very few of these voices ..

Would the world get singer like her in future?, I wonder.

she is singing for God now and He is so happy.

She is probably the greatest vocalist ever...

The world lost on the of the best voices there ever was the day that Karen left us....

When the world lost Karen Carpenter, it lost a bright light. I look forward to the day I hear
her singing with the angels.

She's one of God's angels singing in heaven now

no comments stupdly wonderful

her voice makes my whole body melt~even celine and barabara doesnt do this to me~as much
as i love them..

this woman absolutly fantastic there is nobody out there better her songs have such meaning .

I just cry my eyes out listening to her. I saw her at the London Palladium the year before she
died, and it is soooooooooo sad that she died so young.

I agree. No one else will have this angelic voice. This voice is in the exact place now, with the
chorus of angels praising to God.

What a gift to the world and what a loss

If anyone wonders what the voice of an angel sounds like then he has to listen to her songs.

Karen's gift to the world was her perfect voice. I have never heard anything so beautiful.

com on i have i? tears in my eyes does it get any better then this?

This song makes me teary all the time. I have it on repeat all the time on my iPod.
Her voice is so wonderful.

I know this may sound stupid but if Im having a bad time I like to listen to the Carpenters, I feel like
Karen is singing to me and me only, such a beautiful uplifting voice.

One of the MOST Beautiful voices in modern Rock history.

Perfect song from a perfect vocalist.

Karen had one of the most soothing voices ive ever heard, when I need too let go and relax i can
listen too her and all the bad stuff i carrie around just melts away, I bet shes still singing in heaven

her voice is healing to the soul and mind .......thanks ms karen!!!!

She makes me feel good even when i`m feeling down..Thanks Karen....

Karen has the beautiful voice and I dare to say, non of today singer (female singer) that could
match her voice.

OMG!!!!!How wonderful her voice was...she used to put to much feeling in the songs. I look at the
singers nowadays and they are all the same. Most of them are bored. I like to listen to some of
them but compared to her...She is by far much better.

Karen is a dream. Absolutely beautiful

and her voice is totally beautiful.. I wish she is my mom :) so I can listen to her voice and song
every bed time ;)

Karen breaks my heart every time I hear her sing, she was immensly gifted with a voice of pure gold.

Magical.. only an angel can sing like the way she sings.... truely Magical...

if she's still alive today nobody can beat her on her beautiful. gifted voice that is made from heaven......

One of the most heavenly voices that ever gifted mankind.

She`s got the sweetest voice!!So soothing and peaceful...

Her voice is so... pure!

Maybe the best voice I've ever heard. I saw The Carpenters in concert about five times when they we're
really big. They we're so down to earth, that I once parked next to Richard's red Ferrari at a Long Beach,
CA concert.

Everytime i hear this song,i feel like i want to cry, karen has the most beautiful voice of all time, why did
she have to die

I just love listening to Karen's beautiful sweet angel voice, the best voice I've ever heard in my life.

One of the greatest pop voices of all time,

incredible...that's the way i describe her voice. she makes it look easy to sing but it is difficult to sing
the way she does and be so consistent at it ... so free and makes you feel good and soothing all over
on the inside.

she is one word - AMAZING!!

It never fails to amaze me, how after all this time I can still hear her voice and realize...she was indeed,
the best.

an Angel on earth and in heaven....... what a very nice voice

Karen's excellence voice touched all of us and will be remembered forever!

Its Karen's simple yet perfect style that makes her singing so beautiful. Yes, there shall never be another
one like karen!

kAREN ERES UN REINA IRREMPLASABLE

like i said .. no one would ever replace her .. some voices can never be replaced .. and karen's among
very few of these voices ..

I haven't heard many songs better than it. Infact I am not being able to express my feelings. Would
the world get singer like her in future?, I wonder.

i suspect you are right. there may never be another like her again. We can only hope

She was divine.

the voice of a goddess

amazing!!!!

onnnnnnnnnnnnnnooooooooooo ,*cries*

Long live Karen.....long live her songs....irreplacable classics.......!

SIMPLY THE BEST EVER

Sometimes you know when an Angel is among you. Thank you, Karen Carpenter

she has like the best voice ever!

I wish there was something that could have been done for Karen, I remember how sad my mother
was when she died.

A voice of " chilling perfection with much warmth."

I love Karen! A voice like that only comes once in a lifetime.

I listened to heavier rock through those years, but secretly listened to the
Carpenters when my friends weren't around. How could one not appreciate such
talent?....Gawd, I loved her voice!

The voice!

Karen's voice grabs almost everyone who hears it. Best voice ever recorded.

A masterclass of vocal perfection from the finest female singer ever to set foot our planet.

Its simply mind boggling that there isnt another singer like Karen Carpenter.

Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel !

This is magnificient. She had one of the most beautiful voices God ever created. We are lucky to have
video and audio of her.

She is probably the greatest ever.

mrs. carpenter voice its the best ever i love how she sings

Karen could sing ANYTHING and make it sound better than ANYTHING else sung by ANYBODY else!
What an angelic voice.

Karen Carpenter is like an angel voice coming from heaven, it is part now of our great memory, after all,
they all end in happiness,

A voice for the ages! When all this Hip hop and a so called music is in the ashs. Music like this will be
remember! Thank God for the Carpenters!

...with the most wonderful and amazing voice I've ever heart...

well she was somebody to call THE VOICE.

Her voice could make you feel every emotion. She was and is still the best female vocalist, not
to mention the top female drummer of her time.

One of the most beautiful voices in the world.

The absolute best of the best!!! Unsurpassed, no one could even come close to matching the majic of
Karen Carpenter

Karen had the most perfect female singing voice ever.

I feel extremely Blessed to have discovered this absolutely Beautiful footage of Karen, with that
God-Given Voice, that Soars within your very Spirit and Soul; her Loss was Monumental and
Painful beyond compare, but we can find Comfort and Solace with the recordings of her, both audibly
and visually, to assuage our Painful Loss... May You Be Eternally with God Karen, and May Your
Voice Forever continue to Take Our collective Breaths Away... Now and Always..

such a talented singer. her voice also has a kinda ghostly tone too if u know what i mean. luv em 4ever

I loved her depth and her emotion - Karen is plugged into a "spiritual realm" few people can access.

this is my joint, I use this song on those lonely nights

Karen Carpenter is not just one of the best female vocalists of all time. She is the best. Here voice is
angelic and it bring tears to my eyes to realise what a tragic loss her passing has meant. The world
is a poorer place without her.

who needs highnotes when you've got a voice like hers?!?

What RenoRaider said: It's not cool to like the Carpenters... but "anyone with musical sense knows how
great they were." It took me nearly 40 years to admit I love 'em -- and I don't care if that's not cool.

If there is a better singing voice on the planet, I have yet to hear it!

AWESOME.....everything was awesome. the voice, lyrics, the arrangement. Complete musical genious.

What a MOVING voice she had.

What an angel voice she had... her voice will be in our hearts forever and as long as we remenber her
she will never dispear.

She had the voice of an angel, a timeless classic Shades

the best voice ever made by GOD.....

Their songs are still SHINING in my heart and also rocks my heart as I'm in a super letdown: they
heel my heart.

oh she is simple the best. what a voice. I just love her

I love Carpenters. The most popular Ave Maria is the Ave Maria by Shubert. This
ave maria from J S Bach, (and lirycs in music by Gounod),is one of the most
difficults Ave Marias for to sing. I remember the first time that I ear the
Karen 's voice in Bach with this arrengements and piano and chorus. UMMEASURABLE.
When I compare this one with anothers interpretation I really love Carpenters.

yes!!!! i totally agree!!!! the best ever....

Karen is just unforgetable. It's such a pity she no more among us. Chapeau and standing ovation for her
great works.

what a voice!!!! SHE IS THE VOICE OF AN ANGLE

I never thought I`d hear a woman sing as good as - if noteven superior to - Whitney Huston`s : but here
is one, in my opinion.

When most of the posted comments canned be ignored, take a moment to listen to the talent and depth
of Karen's voice. This may or may not be one of her best songs, but it's really tough to find someone who
can compare to her amazing sound and vocal abilities. I have always loved and listened to all The
Carpenters music and still do to this very day. She is greatly, deeply missed. She was a superstar in
her own right.

Karen Carpenter--You are terrific!!!!

Whether you like'd her music or not, she had the best voice.

A voice of a true angel that can never be replaced!

Such a pure voice, and sung with no effort, just real joy!

She never hit a bad note.

Heaven gained an angel, we lost one of the most beautiful voices.

As her contemporary Petulah Clark said, Karen's voice could go to places where no one else could go.

the one and only the superstar of all time, miss karen carpenter,

Hands-down, Karen Carpenter was the greatest female vocalist in the history of pop music. Mama Cass
Elliott and k.d. lang deserve a spot on the greats list, but nobody touches Karen. She's in a class of one.

A voice - and a sound - to be treasured through the years...

Fabulous song from the finest female singer ever to grace our planet!

can you believe her voice?!! unreal.

Karen Carpenter Really Did Have the Voice of an Angel..To Bring Tears to My Eyes, and Down
My Face..The Best Female Pop Vocalist in History..

just love them, her voice is devine

no one touches my heart like Karen always does

Our universe had a gift from God. Karen Carpenter was one of those gifts that are given us from time
to time. Now, we know what we lost.

i really like her voice the BEST

The best voice of all times. We miss you Karen.

They weren't the coolest act on the radio, but everyone respected her voice, and Richard's talent too.

I hope to meet her on the other side

Yet these people cannot name a female singer in the past 20 years with a voice like her's. Her
tremendous voice will outlast every one of her critics.

the harmonies and that fantastic voice always send shivers down the spine. Thre's something
sublime about it...

She has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard and for sure is truly On Top of the World now.

simply classy !

I never heard anyone else with near perfect tone. Beautiful voice.

Her voice is so hauntingly distinctive.

over the hills and far away,you will still hear their songs, vietnam to be precise,this is how an
angel sings.

The most beautiful female voice ever recorded. Her voice was absolutely perfect in every way.

They had the most beautiful music that was ever played-may God Bless her....

She was a beautiful angelic genius.

the greatest voice of all time period

The best vocalist of all-time. There will never be another like her, ever. What I said is understated,
really. That's how much of a beautiful person she was, and the amazing talent that she had. Words
cannot describe how amazing this woman truly was. She may be gone, but she is more alive than
you think. She'll never die. Legends never die! There will never be another talent, like Karen and
Richard Carpenter.

She was so lovely.

God loves pure souls and call them early as they are most wanted. This woman has always counted
on my breath Her voice always pulls me and make me motionless I miss her and feel she could have
blessed her with more jewels like these ones.

A gorgeous lady with a gorgeous voice. I miss her terribly.

beautiful, just beautiful

What a beautiful range Karen had...

....ahh...what a beautiful voice...thier music stretched generation too from kids to adults.

Wonderful woman, fantastic voice.

This is not a song. This is a page out of my life. From each one of our lives.

A rare and true artist. What an amazing voice. You will always be missed Karen.

It amazes me that Karen can still give me goosebumps when I hear her sweet sweet voice,

carpenters ur still alive ur songs are magical to me yeah!

I think I'm falling in love with The Carpenters. Such a lovely song.

karen had magical voice

Karen's voice has mesmorized millions!

her voice is a gods gift

maybe the most beautiful voice ever

There will never be another voice like this

We miss you Karen....come back.

I grew up in the 70's listening to my parents Carpenters albums. God
what a voice. In all these years since I've never heard anyone with
a voice even close to hers. Brings back good memories.

I never realized how beautiful and haunting Karen's voice was until
I woke up in the middle of the night to this song playing on the radio.

Karen had a God-given talent which will be difficult to match.
Today's rappers and pop divas couldn't hold a candle to her.

I get chills hearing her voice...absolutely angelic

She is the best anyone will ever encounter.

Karen Carpenter is IMMORTAL!!!!

lol, so this is what my mom's been singing all these years. I've
listened to her singing this since i was born, but i haven't heard
this until today, and i'm 17. its beautiful. the feeling of nostalgia
is extremely strong, though i'm not from this era

karen you are so pretty.please come back to earth.

your voice was just perfect

She is very sensual when she sings . . , more so than any of the current half-dressed brats of
today will ever be.

I wish some of today's rappers would listen to some of Karen's songs here on youtube and
realize what REAL talent is.

sung by an absolute angel with the purest, angelic voice in all of existence. what a talent....

the carpenters.what can you say,never been matched and never likley to be.karen just glides
through lyrics with perfection.

Karen will never be equaled

I wish that Karen could have been able to see how beautiful she was to all of us.I still miss her
beautiful voice.

what a voice KC had, nothing can touch it. before or since, her voice was truly unique. rich, deep,
soulful, just perfect.

Karen Carpenter has such an enchanting voice..and this song is my favorite.. I think she is the
best of even todays contemporary understanding of music

All those so-called 'great female singers' (Britney, Christina, Pink, and more) should shut up and
bow to Karen Carpenter.

I miss your great voice !

one of americas finest female voices just showes the ultimate domination of music til this day

Listners of Karen's singing has said her voice has sent chills down their spine, tears down
their cheeks and left them in complete awe and mesmerized.

Karen Carpenter--You are the best!!!

I will always think of her as the greatest female vocalist of all time.

Now getting to what i think abvout Karen i had all her albums and i believe she is
one of the best singers of all time, not to be compared to mariah carey. Karen has
a distinct unique voice that know one has been abble to recreate.

She blows me away with her beatiful and gracful voice.Karen will live on forever with
that voice of hers.

she's got one of the most amazing voices in the history...

Her voice is amazing. THIS is a singer.

A voice like velvet. One of the most angelic sounds ever gifted to a person. What a great loss to us.
I'm sure God is still enjoying such a wonderful creation.

She is the greatest singer of all times and the best voice ever!!!

beautiful, one of the best singers of all time!

Karen is a fine example of a truely beautiful woman with inner beauty that's beyond description, an
angelic voice that no one else in the history of mankind can compare with.

schade das es solche großen Künstler nicht mehr gibt !!!

Her voice is so beautiful, so pleasant, so nice... I can't even find the words to do her justice.

Karen - you could take any song and make it sound like a million dollars.

Her voice sparkles like clear water. The purity and understated melancholy in her singing is matchless.
I have friends who named their daughters after her.

I don't think I've heard of another singer who has Karen's range, not only could she sing songs like this,
that were so simple and beautiful she could also sing classically, her voice was so true.

Her voice is amazing, there will never be another singer like Karen. She really was one of a kind.

The greatest song by the greatest singer. God bless Karen, only the good die young.

It seems that she never lost that pure, perfect voice.

Karen's voice is irreplaceable.

The most beautiful female singing voice ever! God,this girl's voice was matchless and lovely. She
made singing look as effortless as breathing.

If there is a more beautiful voice out there. I haven't heard it.

she was the best....her music is solid,not like the crappy music there is today......

OMG!!!!!How wonderful her voice was...she used to put to much feeling in the songs. I look at
the singers nowadays and they are all the same. Most of them are bored. I like to listen to
some of them but compared to her...She is by far much better.

Karen Carpenter has the greatest voice!!

Everything she did was perfect.

very fine tuning voice of karen nobody else have that even celine dion not

A singer - and a sound - to fall in love with forever and ever...

brilliant better than the crap they turn out nowdays

Karen you helped me get through the rainy days and blue mondays. Thank you!

i just wish she is still alive and sings to us with her very wonderful voice..

Karen you had the voice of a god. NO ONE better.

She is very sensual when she sings . . , more so than any of the current
half-dressed brats of today will ever be.

What a pure voice, she was born to sing!

when I am reincarnated I want her voice. karen I hope you are having fun in heaven.

carpenters has always been and still is my favorite... i was still a teen ager then
and now i am almost 50... my kids know her bec. i sing all her songs and they too can...

Such an awful loss. There will never be another Karen. I'm 37 and remember these
songs as a little kid growing up. It never gets old for me.

There will never be another voice like this

Memories from my childhood..... tears now!

her voice is a gods gift

Every time we play this song, or this video, she is alive again in our souls.

beauty beauty beauty beauty beauty beauty beauty

Karen sings most of her songs in their purest form,the way songs should be sung!

excellent voice!

Imagine having Karen Carpenter singing the intro into your ear. It would simply be too much of a
sensual experience. Beautiful face, beautiful teeth and a ridiculously beautiful and original voice.

Angel soul...angel music....music of soul.This is music..no noise.

Somebody else got the great desire to meet Karen Carpenter someday in heaven !?
Great singer, great voice, she is just amazing.

Such an angelic vocalist !!!!!!!

The Carpenters were some of the best artists this world could have been offered.

One of the nicest tunes I've ever listened to.

It is one of the greatest songs in the world. So sweet her voice is.

Best singer ever !!!!!! I am ten and I love them!

Brilliant! That has to be the most original comment ever to appear connected with Karen
Carpenter. She must be made into a postumous sex symbol!

Karen has become my muse. I am a musician and whenever I play out before I go on, I
think of Karen. Sometimes I will just quietly say 'I love you Karen'.

A gorgeous lady with a gorgeous voice. I miss her terribly.

beautiful, just beautiful

Nothing corny about this. Just great music and memories by the sweetest voice of all times,
by one of the most beautiful woman ever in music.

the best ALTO ever!

an angel is singing,i love you, Karen.You are not with us any more,but your memory is in
my heart forever and ever

Bella!

It makes me cry. True words for me.

her version of any song is the best ever!!

This is the BEST version of This Masquerade sung by anyone! The BEST! Awesome!

an angel is singing,i love you, Karen.You are not with us any more, but your memory is in
my heart forever and ever

What a beautiful range Karen had...

No better voice.....ever.

Just one of the greatest voices ever folks, be humble and be happy you lived to hear her.

They had the most beautiful music that was ever played-may God Bless her....

Some people don't beleive in Angels on Earth. We had one for a short while. Still can't get over
the pureness of her voice and the beautiful songs she gave us. Thank you Karen and Richard.

She was awsome..her music "Touched People" , you cant listen to at least one her songs without
getttin teary eyed. She'd be a Living Legend if she were alive..

One of the most amazing things about Karen Carpenter was that she never had voice lessons. What
she had was self-taught, natural talent.

This is an excellent song, anyway, but Karen could take the most mediocre stuff and make it sound
like a million dollars.. I love and miss you, babe..

My God, Thank You for Having Given Us the Gift of Karen Carpenter and Her Voice From the Heavens...

The Carpenters were great. Karen had one of the most distinct and beautiful voices in music.

How can a song be that beautiful.. I love you Karen...
Can see your beautiful eyes looking down from heaven..

She was a beautiful lady with an incredible talent given by God.

Karen is still alive in my heart!

I wish she knew how beautiful she was!

Karen looks like an angel, she sings like an angel...SHE IS AN ANGEL !

No one like her before her,and there will NEVER? be anyone like her after her.....

I am a construction worker and Karen you make tears in my eyes!
You are not forgotten Karen!

I can never get enough hearing any of her song. Such irreplacable voice.

I get chills hearing her voice...absolutely angelic

karen carpenter is the best female singer ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

karen voice was a amazing,no one can duplicate her,she was the only one the one and only my superstar.

best vocal dynamics ever

Her voice is SO gorgeous, she was so SO attractive in her own unique way. Wish I had
appreciated her more when I was a teen in the 70's. I'm upset that she's gone now...we
love you Karen...we always have.

one of the most wonderful singer i ever heard wish she won't died early so she can sing
more to all people who admired her... great singer she was one of a kind... rest in peace
karen we love you you're still remembered by us...

Some artists come along to heal the world and to raise the conscsiousness of humanity,
the Carpenters were one.

one of the best song from one of the best singer ever...

Who can't remember this Angels amazing Voice.

karen, your voice can never die!

She "is" a legend.

Karen Carpenter, we love you and your velvet voice still lulls the troubles of this world away.

She's been gone for 24 years, yet her music is still the best. No voice yet has matched Karen's.

The most nostalgic song I've ever heard!

totally love her voice and her spirit while she sings, you cant find much of that left in our world today

Best female voice in the history.

the music of today is nothing compared to this..listen to this voice, awesome!

Karen had the prettiest voice ever. Such a shame she's not around...

Karen will live in our hearts forever as the most amazing vocalist of all time. She melts my heart.

the music industry should listen to this, i mean karen had a great voice, beter than madonna or
miss spears......but these days the looks is more inportant than the voice...

That voice is from heaven.

As usual, Karen is as beautiful and elegant as ever, her singing, as well as her appearance.

that song is like the first ever power ballad. it changed many genres of music

This particular song helped to elevate my adolecent mind all throughout those troubled years.
I'm greatful for Karen Carpenter.

Just about my all-time fave C's song!! thanks... Very classy lady and very classy song!

Absolutely stunning and magical music! I am an American and marrying a woman from
Nanning, China and this is our theme song whether or not we use it at our wedding. Karen
Carpenter has the voice of an Angel and her greatest gift to us will last forever, her timeless
spirit, which is so perfectly communicated through her God given natural talent. In my opinion,
she has a vocal quality that will never be matched. May God bless her as she has blessed us.

Fabulous!

I love this song! I'm gonna play this on my wedding day!!

My God, what a voice...Tears in my eyes...time after time after time..Forever and ever and ever...

She had so much effortless range in her voice, unlike anyone I have ever heard.

Well, I was one of the lucky ones to see Karen 'live' in concert, circa 1973 (at age 11). She
sounded BETTER in person that on record, and that's saying something. Plus she played the
hell out of the drums for about 2/3 of the concert. I still have my pictures, program and poster.
Saw them in Kansas City, Mo. on 4/21/73. Sold out show.

Its allready been said but its worth saying again, one of the best voices in history

I love Karen ...never another voice like hers.....this is natural talent pure and straight forward.

I love Karen Carpenter. She is the best singer yet

Son of a gun that's a wonderful song sung by a lovely lady and played by a great band...just
what is needed to liven up this place a little...

Rest in peace lovely lady. I will never forget you?

The best ever

mY BEST GIRL

You said it - no one better - such clarity, presence, purity - the total antithesis to the female
'divas' of today.

what a haunting voice, as soon as you hear one word sung you know its Karen in an instant
no mattter what song or where you are in the world

A beautiful song..one of my favourites...gentle arrangement by Richard and Karen..the voice
of an angel...thank you

Is there a purer more beautiful voice than Karen C's that can convey a sad resignation
to life without making you want to slit your wrists at the same time? I think not.

The carpenters were big when I was a teenager. At the time I thought it was just music
for old people however I now appreciate the quality of the music and especially the
beauty in Karen Carpenters singing. Priceless.

An infinitely sad and perfect tune by one of the best, if not the best, female vocalists
in popular music.

Her voice is so effortless. I wish she could sit at the edge of my bed and sing me a bedtime
story. There are times when? you have to ask yourself if she is singing or speaking.

she's so precious I can hardly breath thinking about her...

Karen is an angel.

BEAUTIFUL one of the most touching songs ever produced!!!

Our Wedding Song! Can't beat? this one

I will NEVER EVER forget Karen Carpenter!

She had such an innocent child like way about her that would make any man in his right
mind fall in absolute love with her.

She was a special lady. As perfect as her voice was, she was even sweeter in person!

One of the most talented of people. What I liked the most about her and her brother was
the incredible love they had for one another, just like the Bee Gee brothers have.

One of the smoothest voices ever. I love her voice.

Just doesn't get any better than Karen...Greatest voice I've EVER heard. Sucks that she is
gone but at least we have a bundle of material to replay over and over.We all get to enjoy
the best music ever created...likely never to be matched again. Thanks Karen for making
life a little more enjoyable in a world full of crap.

What a beautiful fabulous voice!

She was an Angel on loan from God, and I guess he just took her back. Simply exquisite.

No one in the music industry (if that's what you want to call it, these days,) will EVER come
close to Karen's range or her overall talent. She is, to me, the queen of pop music. And
always will be. To all the young "So Called" super star singers of today...."Nice Try...

It is sorry that an Angel like her left us.

She puts a smile on my face it doesnt get any better than this!!!!

Awesome this women is one great beauty. Her voice makes me go crazy for her.

Those of you cutting on Karen, go to hell! She had the best voice ever, not like these
idiots today!

What a beautiful range Karen had...

God I miss her... what an immense talent!

This was beautiful, what a voice, what music....nothing like this around today.

Her voice made the 70's a better place.

*sigh*
love is like heaven till they break your heart than it hurts like hell

this is'nt a song it's an experience the carpenters are beyond legends , like
a world neccesity , like air , there music is so easy to relate 2, missin karen!!!!

you know - when I was young I'd listen to the radio, waitin for my favorite
song - this one.

If there's a sound that TAKES YOU BACK it's the Carpenters. Haunting. Almost heartbreaking.

She took so much love with her..Karen...Anyway i love this song..

You took alot of love with you Karen and you are now what you were born to be... an angel.

the voice of a perfect angel rest in piece karen

Incredible voice.

God given talent!

Not another voice like Karen's. Beyond words.

i feel proud to have the same name :)

Merely the finest female pop voice of all time...stunning range and clarity...

Her voice touches every part of me.

She literally hits some low notes at the end of the song that I swear I haven't
heard any female singer hit since.

and Karen is just the greatest ever.

Such a beautiful, haunting voice that has never been replaced !

She had one of the most beatiful voices.Todays young people should learn from
Karen how to sing with such grace and passion. Thats why she will go down in
history as one of the greastest singers in 50 to 100 yesrs from now. And they
will say, "Brittney who"? But we know Karen.

She would blow away ALL these singers out today...Damn..she left us MUCH
too soon..............

nobody can sing like her, i love that voice, so soft and sweet.

I just love listening to Karen's beautiful sweet angel voice, the best voice I've ever heard in my life.

I'ts like God called her early to join his choir of Angelic voices...

Karen is the greatest female singer of all time.

WOW!!!! WHAT A VOICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The best I've ever heard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She's my Mom's fav singer in the entire world!

I can't believe how beautiful this is - Karen's voice was incredible...I could listen
to this over and over again for hours!

Perfection as only Karen Carpenter was capable of! The world lost its most beautiful
voice when Karen left us.

She did have a perfect voice. I even knew that back in the day when I was only interested
in the rock of the late sixties. I did not like the songs but her voice was amazing.

Always be remembered, Karen! Love her voice and her songs. Not forgettting her
brother, for being such a good pianist!

what a voice. very beautiful.

What a voice. Arguably best female singer of our time. Amazing

the best single singer of all thime karen

She was blessed with the best voice ever known.

She really sang "I need to be in love" with heart that time. You
could see it in her eyes. I was almost about to cry!

What a terrific and rare song, I'll never hear a voice better than hers.

She has the most beatiful singing voice I have ever heard. Nobody comes close.

KAREN the most soothing voice ever ... its strange that today's techinically
complicated singers still cant beat Karen's simple and pure voice.

Karen Carpenter has the greatest voice!!

golden voice . i'm a marilyn manson fan. but when i hear karen singing i
switch to her music......

I just love listening to Karen's beautiful sweet angel voice, the best
voice I've ever heard in my life.

Perfect Pitch And Tones. They'll never be another voice like hers. Beautiful songwriting.

It's a shame the world lost such a beautiful voice.

the sweetest girl ever I can't blink when I stare at her singing like an angel

solid evidence that karen carpenter not only had the greatest, most pure, angelic voice of
this past century, but that she could take a formerly beautiful, classic song and bring it to
ever higher heights of beauty

God Bless you my dearest Karen! We all miss you sweetheart!

Karen the best voice on the world

wow you visted her grave?? anyway her voice is soooo nice like an angel.......

Karen Carpenter is for me one of best voices the we have in United States.

sung by an absolute angel with the purest, angelic voice in all of existence.

What a voice at least the world can still hear her on those cd's. In that way, she is
still alive. the music will live on, as will her voice for generatons.

The purest, cleanest voice I've heard. God!!! Captivating.

Karen was the sweetest voice ever...so mellow and romantic...I live her music and her
presence..I think that in heaven the angels are delighted with her

There was something inside of her that made her voice find a way into the soul's
around her.

she speaks directly to my heart!

a beautiful singer with the perfect voice.

a song about angels sung by an absolute angel with the purest, angelic
voice in all of existence.

Karen was re-interred in Valley Oaks Memorial Park in Westlake in 2003.
The exact coordinates of her grave are 34°09.01.41 N 118°47.50.11 W.

Karen is the greatest female voice of ALL TIME!

She has the worlds best voice.

Words fall short of the feelings while i hear her and see this video. Her
voice has immense gravity. I certainly wish to visit the same place shown
here one day. There is a tremendous sadness in her voice which sound sweet
one feels to drift away in her emotions. It was twenty years back when i
heard this song and trust me it still is afresh and draws me back in those
times. Long Live Karen She is god's Soul

Nobody had a voice like Karen.

What a beautiful singing voice Karen Carpenter had- May she always rest in
peace in eternal life in heaven!

Yes It's true that Karen has, without a shadow of a doubt, the purest sweetest
voice that I've ever heard, But IMO what also really shines thru are Richards
arrangements & superb harmonys & overall musical production of the whole
catalog of these songs.

she has the purest voice ive ever heard!!!!

Probably the most beautiful voice I have ever had the pleasure of listening
to. Wherever her eternal whereabouts I do hope she found the happiness she
brought to millions !!

What a voice. The hairs on the back of my neck stand on end when I hear Karen's
voice in the opening lines

KAREN was a super star,,,,,,,,what a voice......thank you.

zeer mooie stem.....
beautiful voice ! and a even greater song !

Karen Carpenter was an angel sent to sooth us all. May her voice live forever.

Is that Karen Carpenter or an ANGEL SENT FROM GOD .....I really cannot tell ?
I think it is an Angel :D :D :D

An angel is right, what a loss, miss you so much Karen, no one sings like
Karen Carpenter.

Karen will never really be gone!!! her music will live forever,

All of the greats did this tune. Frank and Nat, amongst them. But, to my ears
anyway, this is the definite version.

KAREN may not have stunning looks but she is the most beautiful person in
the world to me!

My God, Karen is Beautiful and With a Voice of an Angel..I Could Have Fallen in Love With Her..
Wow......Karen, Rest in Peace Knowing That You Have Brought So Many Tears of Joy and Smiles
to People All Over the World Through All of These Years..Karen, You're Beauty and Beautiful Voice
I Will Remember Forever and Ever....Thank You so Much.....Sigh.........

This is music! Karen is awesome!

Te amo Karen...!!!

Karen Carpenter was a beautiful woman and the singing was about equaled by her drumming; perfect.
Her tuning was as good as I have heard since Barbara Streisand who also had terrific tuning. If I were
to only listen to one female singer it would be her,

She was such a lovely lady with a beautiful voice....I miss her songs on the radio. They always made
me soooo happy. There is a lesson in here. We should never assume, never judge people and never
take anyones feelings for granted. Perhaps Karen would still be here today. We can not love one
another too much.

She was the greatest then ,and she is the greatest now !

They say when you die and enter Heaven youre met by the song of Angels. I can't imagine that
Karen won't be there because her voice on Earth was purely Angelic and she was an Angel.

If there is a heaven, I hope I am lucky enough to see Karen once again. She is so missed
and loved to this very day.

Simply sublime.

Like I've Said Before About Karen, My God, What a Voice of an Angel....Wow....No Other
Voice Can touch My Soul Like Karen Carpenter's...Karen, Rest Very Peacefully...I Will
Love Your Beautiful, Angelic Voice Always and Forever...

she was too good for this world

Karen you stir my heart ! rest in peace my lady... thank you

One Love.......sung by an Angel.

THE VOICE OF AN ANGEL

Such a gorgeous song by a beautiful,gifted singer.

Heartaches .. just couldnt find anyone who can replace her. sobs!

A shame this was not one of the hits, because it is the best of Karen -- deeply romantic,
perfect for her alto, deeply felt by K.C., perfect respect for the lyrics, and that captivating
undercurrent of sadness. We will never find another like her.

I will always love you,Karen

she is in heaven, another deminsion. her body may be gone but her mind and thoughts still
exist and she can read all of theses comments and proberly is very happy by what she sees.

The Carpenter's music can be enjoyed by all generations. It's timeless and never out of style.

What words describe what she was & is to us that loved her. She gave us so
much, touched hearts in places no one else even knew existed.

I love Her.... what can I say but the biggest lost in music history

Karen is just Karen. No can describe her! just listen to her. Then, figure out all
the assholes around her. God bless Karen, taken so early, but never forgotten.

Mix your favorite drink. Turn the lights outs. Turn Karens song on! Then, let me
know what you think!

Karen is perfection! After she first sang, someone should have placed a guard
around her. She was/is a national treasure!

GORGEOUS!! There is no one like KC and never will be! I love this song and
she sings it beautifully! Better than Celine Dion's version.

The eternal Karen Carpenter ...simply heavenly ...love and miss u so very
much Karen

Listen, Karen had a voice that was angelic. She never needed to scream, and
I think that she respected her audiences too much for that. I love her renditions
of the standards.

nobody have her voice.. she was incredible,

Karen was amazing. Why is it that none of the American Idol contestants even
come close to her natural talent? Go figure. A true gift from Heaven.

She remains among the best.

Beautiful voice. She inpired me to sing and to play the drums *-* She's one of the greatest
voices i've ever heard ... RIP karen

Oh my god I loved this song when it came out!!!! You couldn't find it anywhere it was such
a hit!!! She is the voice of all angels everywhere!!!

she has the most beutiful voice in the world ive always loved them

Agree! She's got the mostbeautiful voice in the world.

Karen Carpenter had the most beautiful voice ever gifted to anyone. She was a true angel...

her death still bothers me. greatest voice i've ever heard. perfect pitch, God-given talent on
a paramount scale. A star on Earth and a star in Heaven

What a nice comment and I so agree.... One of my (if not the) favorite female singers
of all time!!

Karen always will be our little sister..gone but never forgotten..

Karen Carpenter, gone but not forgotten. Thank goodness for YOU TUBE. My kids were and
ARE mesmerized by her voice. What a tragic loss..

Its difficult to explain but her voice somehow causes a very deep emotional reaction....truly
amazing tone

best female vocalist i've ever heard, and i've heard a lot. no one touches KC, not even close.

my mom love this...!
The best...

If GOD ever needed a voice, it would of been hers.....what a lose to the world when she pasted,
what a gain when she was born and discovered!!

karen's voice had such a beautiful texture to it, rich, deep, soulful, one of a kind. we miss her, but
we have her music and the sound of that incredible voice. waaaaaaaaaaaa, close to you,
waaaaaaaaaaaaaa, close to you. love it!

Beautiful, rich, luxuriant voice full of emotional depth.

All she had going for her was talent, looks, personality and a
beautiful voice, like an angel. People
seem to feed on garbage these days.

Such a timeless song and voice. No one compares to Karen.

Best female voice ever. I can't think of anyone who comes close.

Voice of an angel. Looks of an angel. Talent of an angel.

The most beautiful female voice all time. I was shocked and devastated when
I heard the news she had died. I grew up hearing the Carpenters as a little kid
in the 70's.....miss you Karen.....

The most beautiful voice that has ever been in the air on planet earth!

What an absolutely gorgeous voice. There will never be anyone like her again.
She was amazing.

In my opinion, the Greatest Female singer that ever lived!!!! was and is Karen
Carpenter. Absolutely, no one else had a voice like Karen. The music she made
with her brother Richard is timeless and will touch the hearts of people forever!!!!!

As a listener of the Carpenters for over 20 years, I'm often left speechless by
the music and the lyrics. Karen Carpenter had the loveliest voice you could imagine...

Makes todays slew of female singers look like crap.

The best female voice ever, by a million miles, timeless

we never met but she knew how to touch my heart....thank you karen!!

Best female voice ever. I can't think of anyone who comes close.

Tears streaming down my face............That Angelic voice is incredible, i know
you are singing up in Heaven.

No need to do voice acrobatics with this voice. Just simple, plain but powerful singing

Her voice is so perfect it almost doesn't sound human.

Karen Carpenter - the purest voice ever.

Karen Carpenter is beyond brilliant! Just her use, knowledge and embodiment
of vibrato...I can't get over!!!

she had the voice of all god's angels.

Some voices are just better than others.

Omg her voice is everything

I think God took Karen home because he missed her voice.

Alice Cooper said he likes this song.

Belliiii...iiiìsimo!!

RIP Karen Carpenter, this world was never long for you but you will never be forgotten, a true soul
had she

This song is very good. Japanese all people like this song

The Carpenters always manage to capture the sincerity and the feelings that people go through
when they're in love.

The world misses that voice from Heaven. Amazing.

She's beautiful.

It's amazing!!! I don't have words to describe it...!!! YOU ARE THE BEST.
CONGRATULATIONS

Crescent Noon;
This song definitely showcases the purity of Karen's voice.

The voice of an Angel - so sad she was taken from us - I was fortunate to see
the Carpenters in concert in the early 70's - a day I will never forget -

greatest singer of all time...karen ur the best.

I agree with the above comment about Karen being the best singer ever. She is
my favorite singer. No one will ever have a voice like that. She is missed.

The greatest Christmas song ever. I cry everytime I hear it. What a performance
by Karen !

Well done. I too, could listen to this all year long. Flawless voice and very,
very, talented.

karen we will always love ya!!! see ya in heaven

An amazing interpretation that captures the magic of Karen's voice with the
beauty of this animated story. Chilling perfection!

Her voice can reach deep into my soul. I don't know why.

I am so moved by the comments here. I grew up with Karen Carpenter, and she
was dismissed in my day as elevator bubble-gum schtick. But I always thought
even back in those days that she sang like an angel just touching the earth
for a moment.

I didn't know she sang this. She is really a song diva

Karen Carpenter's voice is that of an Angel in Heaven. At God let her spend a
little time singing for us here on Earth.

Now Karen can sing this song the way it's suppose to be sung

One of the most beautiful performances of music I have ever heard! Karen's voice
could melt a heart of stone.

One of the best songs ever, sung by one of the greatest voices ever. Viva Karen
of Argentina!

I think Karen Carpenter could sing anything and sound good.

What a terrific and rare song, I'll never hear a voice better than hers.

best female vocalist of ALL TIME! you are missed Karen

Karen is one of those unforgettable people in life that impress you for the rest of
your life.THANK YOU KAREN !!!

Karen's voice still haunts her fans and listeners like me after all these years. What
a great singer!

Karen wasn't the prettiest singer of her time, but she was blessed with the purest
and sexiest voice. I still put her at the top of my female singers list, even after all
these years.

The sweetest voice in the whole universe!

Karen is supergirl.

I love her voice. None could ever replace it. R.I.P., Karen.

Wow. What a song....and that voice....pure Heaven.

I can't even begin to express how beautiful I think her voice is,

Karen's voice is flawless... Thank you Karen Carpenter!!

so moving!! Karen is the best.

the best woman vocalist ever karen carpenter

I've been a pro musician for 37 years and I have never heard a voice as true and clear
as Karens. She never fails to touch me and especially with this song, I love her dearly,
the lead singer is in heaven.

KAREN delivered the best version of Solitaire in the whole music industry ever. Karen
lives on in our hearts!

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!!!

Karen had the best voice ever, she was the best,

the most amazing alto voice in the history of music

the best woman vocalist ever karen carpenter

Karen cuts through the heart like no other, in my humble opinion. Just listen to
to the richness of those low notes on "Solitaire". NOBODY else has ever come
close to that sound.

, but this made the hair stand up on my arm. True classic!

This song is amazing and her voice is so pure and pierces straight to your heart.

No one can sing like Karen Carpenter.

We lost the most beautiful voice of all time!

I have always said that if I could have any voice in the world, it would be Karen's.
Such range and clarity.

I cannot listen to Karen Carpenter without tears in my eyes! She always rips my heart
to pieces! It is so sad she died so young. She was and still is one of a kind. I hate singers
of today!!!

A truly beautiful song from my favourite singer of all time. Karen has left us a wonderful
legacy - thank you so much to Ned and all the great Carpenters fans who help keep
Karen's star shining so brightly in our lives.

Her voice... what a gift... This is simply elegant.

my fave song of karens ever. the world lost a great talent with her passing. what a
beautiful beautiful voice!

In my opinion, none of the "screeching howler monkeys" that have ever competed on or
even won American Idol even come close to comparing to the incomporable voice of
Karen Carpenter. This also includes her contemporaries. She was and is still simply the best!

The most beautiful voice I have ever heard! Absolutely flawless in everyway. No one even comes
to close to her voice!! This is the standard by which all other pop singers of today should be judged by

Whoever sees this video will see the beautiful person and extraordinary talent of Karen Carpenter. She
and her music are just timeless.

great great great what more can i say i love karen and her music and miss her loads and i love this
song its lyrics are brilliant and karens singing well what can u say its almost brought me to tears

If this doesn't make you weep, nothing will. What a beautiful and fitting tribute to a lovely and talented
young woman.

I'm a grown man, but if this song doesn't make you cry, knowing the context in which it was recorded,
then you are tougher than I am. We miss you KC and we thank you for the music.

Instant tears...so transcendental..so amazing

Nothing really needs to be said.

Sorry, but Karen Carpenter should be in the top 5. Very few can match her tone, diction
and emotion. None of today's singers (who tend to "over-sing" songs) can match her.

RIP - Karen's voice touches the hearts of many people still.

this should be at no. 1
voice of an angel..songs are effotlessly done..beautiful character...no 1 compares to her...

she has this really sweet smooth voice that can make you just wanna sing even if you
dont like singin you hear her voice then your singin along a real natural talant karen
you are really missed

A deep smooth voice that still gives me chills when I hear her sing classics like "Superstar".
What a tragic loss.

Karen had the most beautiful voice I have ever heard, or will ever hear. I loved her. I miss
hearing her.

The greatest. Period.

Karen is my all time favourite female. Have got all her songs

Hands-down, Karen Carpenter was the finest female vocalist in the past 50 years. She didn't
shriek like Whitney or Celine -- she simply and effortless had the most perfect voice ever
recorded.

Clearly Karen had the greatest voice of all time-no question about it!

Karen Carpenter's diction was the best of any female singer in history,

Her ability to sustain a note at a low decibel level with authority and even subtleness is
unsurpassed. A perfect voice, a shame she is not sitting at the top spot in this poll.

'A star in earth, a star on heaven'

The most beautiful and perfect voice to ever utter a lyric. No trilling, no yelling, no shrieking,
just pure perfection of note and timbre.

"A Star on earth
a star in heaven"
Karen is the best singer
off all the times.”

Karen, simplesmente the best!

Karen you are wonderful, you never die

My God, Thank You for Having Given Us the Gift of Karen Carpenter and Her Voice
From the Heavens...

Such a beautiful voice and a gentle spirit. She's singing lead in the biggest choir
now. She is sadly missed here on Earth.

Such a lovely voice! I hope she's in heaven leading the angels in song. Love and
miss you Karen.

One of the most amazing things about Karen Carpenter was that she never had voice
lessons. What she had was self-taught, natural talent.

Maybe, but there was never a bird that sang more beautiful than Karen.

Her voice was absolutely impeccable. No one even comes close today. Those
first few notes always give me goosebumps. She was wonderful.

Karen looks so HOT in this video, not to mention a voice as smooth as glass. The
greatest female singer ever. Love her!

I would like to know what Karen's vocal range was. I always knew "Only Yesterday"
began at a low pitch; incredibly, it's E flat below middle C on my piano!

I wish she knew how beautiful she was!

her singing and pitch is impeccable, definitely one of the greatest singers of her time.

A nice song and what a lovely voice Karen has! How I wish that she didn't pass away
at such a young age. Would like to imagine that she would be singing in heaven for God now.

Karen has such a soothing voice. Shes smiling down on us from heaven.

I'm 41, and I can say without any qualification that I believe Karen Carpenter had the
greatest voice I've ever heard, it was that good.

Best female vocalist ever for me. Really good range. Doesn't even look like she's trying.
Thats just how good she is.

Karen Carpenters voice will live forever, I will see to that! Karen and Richard made the
Carpenters and I will never forget them!

I sure loved Karen Carpenter... broke my heart when she passed away... what a voice....
like angels singing... smooth as angel hair....

what must it feel like to be able to pick up a mic and sing like this?
The voice of an Angel, Karen Carpenter talent will never be forgotten.. XXX

OMG! Her voice is so soothing. No one sounds like this today. Truly a one of a kind talent.

Karen's voice was a gift to all of us, she could envoke emotion with out yelling or screaming
todays singers could learn alot from her!

Every note she sings is gorgeous. Singers today (if you can call them that) could learn a lot
from her understated, elegant delivery. Her voice is timeless and will never go out of style.

There is no way to comment the beauty of the sensuel voice of Karen and how deep we still
miss her after listennig couples of her great songs... I am glad to see that a lot of people feel
the same...She deserves great honners!

One of the best voices ever. Rest in peace,and god bless.

I can relate...he voice was extraordinary, to say the least.
And that's coming from a punk rocker.

She was wonderful and simply the best female vocalist ever, in my opinion.

Karen is like an angel. Listening to her amazing voice takes you to heaven.

Best female vocalist Ive heard. WOW what a voice

she has such a beautiful voice and connection with her brother. I wished they made proper
mirrors in the what..seventies? She looks better than anyone in that grubby era

To Richard,
As a fan who knows well the transport of Karen's voice
I'd like to say for all of us
She truly is
A star who joined the Heavens with Earth
God bless
Tim

karen carpenter is the best female singer ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love this song always, but performed it angelically by Karen it's a real treat . Argentinians
must be very proud of the way she sings this one.

the music industry should listen to this, i mean karen had a great voice, beter than madonna
or miss spears......but these days the looks is more inportant than the voice...

It is so sweet that an all new audience is now exposed to the timeless beauty of Karen and
her voice. These sorts of things are truly timeless, as those kids are learning now. Real music
lives forever folks....

Karen had the greatest voice! I've never had the sense that she ever knew that....

i will keep on listening to her songs in all my life

RIP Karen. I have always loved your voice, and it was such a tragic loss of life and talent when
you left this world. You still have the ability to make me cry!

Sometimes we forget what a magnificent voice and style Karen had...

I agree with you. Music sucks nowadays. She had such a voice. She was a natural. What a
celestial voice!! So smooth. She sings perfectly. I love her voice. I grew up with the Carpenters
and I miss their music.

THE GREATEST VOICE I HAVE EVER HEARD

I also agree,,, Karen was the greatest... her music is still GREAT.

She had the most unique female voice EVER! I have never heard anyone even come close
to her tone. I don't think it can be done!

Well, you're not alone. Karen Carpenter is now, more than ever, regarded as one of the finest
female vocalists of all time. If you made a checklist of what great singers have, Karen had
them all. It's a VERY brave individual who can say that The Carpenters recorded trash and
Karen couldn't sing. My God, that girl's voice could make a grown man cry. As much I like
Celine Dion and even Streisand, no voice can, or will in my opinion, come close to Karen's.

I love Karen Carpenter. She is the best singer yet

The Greatest alto in the last century , without a doubt.

angelic voice from heaven

They are both soooooo cute and she has the best voice in the universe!!!

I love The Carpenters still...They are a beautiful memory from my past and
I still get a little emotional when I hear their music. Aftr all these years
Karen Carpenter's voice still has a calming effect on me!

Karen!
She was the best singer in the 20th century.

I sing this song for my little daughter every night so I am glad I can let
her hear the original now - THANK YOU.

What a waste, its just like an angel. Something divine. ITS SO SAD for
the world have been lost this sweet voice

Karen Carpenter is oh, so awesome. I love this beautiful voice. There will never be another.

Nobody has or had a voice like Karen Carpenters. WOW ! Her voice just rings clarion
like an angels trumpet.

this is soo unfair! why can't we have another Karen Carpenter. I know there will never be
another Karen Carpenter but there's so many Britney Spears and Whitney Houstons in the
music industry already..if you know what I mean. They all sound the same to me! Worst of
all none of them sings like Karen. She's like a once-in-thousand years phenomenon. why
did she have to die...

Personally I think she has the most beautiful voice ever in the history of voices.

Karen is an angel in Heaven now. She came, she sang...and then God called her back....

There is nobody who will come close to this voice! EVER!

She is an original for sure, a haunting voice one can't forget.

I am a male and cry when this song plays on Christmas Eve! So magical and
so powerful is karens beautiful voice!!! AWESOME!

Karen to me is an all time favorite!

The best there was. The best there will be.

No one can replace her!!!!!!!!!!!!!

man man wat e memory.....geweldig gewoon.

one of the most beautiful voices in the world ever!!!!

Such a voice can only come from heaven. It carries such rich harmonies,
enveloping the soul, washing it clean of worldly thoughts then leaving it
pristine in a sparking mist of sublimity.

one word.. tears

Heaven sure must be nicer with Karen Carpenter up there.

I still misses her especially her angelic voice..she will be the first and last
person to have this voice!!! rip my idol

The Carpenters is still the best of yesterday today and forever! They were
simply incomparable to the sounds of this generation (where I belong) because
Karen's voice and Richards talent in the piano are truly one of a kind and
nobody could ever replace them as one of the greatest part of the history
of the music industry!!
Love and Miss Karen so much as well as Richard.

A beautiful song written for an angel like Karen . She still lives in our hearts.

Voice from Heaven!!! Miriad of videos here of her greatest - best voice EVER!!!

Probably the best female singer of all time. You hit it on the head jazzy, thankfully
I have a huge collection of oldies cuz if I had to listen to the crap they put out now
I would be totally turned off music. What the ??? happened between then and
now? We love and miss you Karen and will always remember your angelic voice.

i love her voice..nothing compares to you karen!

it's a real shame this woman is no longer with us. i listen to her and wonder how
pop music got to the shit they put out now.

One of the best songs ever! and we all know :-) that she may have had the best
natural voice of them all! purity of sound that purifies my soul!

Such a sweet voice! No one can replace Karen!

she has the most beautiful voice ever..so magicaly haunting and sweet...r.i.p karen

As they say, The good die young but in this case the greatest has left us!

Karen's tone and perfect pitch will never be duplicated ... neither will her beautiful
yet somehow haunted spirit. We miss you - an Angel in heaven now.

Best voice I've ever heard.

I agree.

The death of this young woman, was a monumental tragedy. It saddens me to my soul
when I hear here wonderful, unique and astounding voice. The loss of her cannot be
gauged.

World has lost the most female powerful voice of all time.

No words can describe the wonders of her voice and their songs.

She will live forever, what a VOICE

The BEST Feelgood song of all time,the CARPENTERS music will be around for eternity

Karen Carpenter 1950-1983 R.I.P You were too good for this world Karen. The World
will still know you existed 2000 years from now as you are a Legend.

her magical voice is so amazing!!!

I still cry every time I hear this song. There will never be another singer as wonderful as
Karen Carpenter.

I grew up 50 miles away, but in my heart I loved her now shes in Gods hands.. Karren was
awesome if she had lived could have been the greatest ever!

Karen...she's the best...what a loss.

amazing voice , no one beat here , she is unique in here charme , Karen wil never forgathen ,
she wil always lif in memory .

i miss her. complete perfection!!!

In all honesty i never like the song solitaire until i heard this version by
karen carpenter...jus show how good she is..ppl simply use the word legend
nowadays..but karen is indeed worthy to be called a music legend..

Karen lifts the hair on my arm and makes me cry. So sad.

Clay Aiken's version is great, but, SORRY....it doesn't compare to Karen Carpenter.
Her version is a CLASSIC....true perfection.

This is just one of those songs. Whether you're in or out of love it just speaks
to you. It was very moving before Karen died and now it's almost too much. I'd
scratch the electric guitar and keep those lovely strings (understated, as they
are now). What a voice. People throw the phrase around a lot, but there has never
been now will there ever be another voice like Karen Carpenter's.

Oh my God! Karen Carpenter sang it beautifully. There will never be another singer
that will have her stunning voice. I miss you Karen.

What a voice!!!! Karen Carpenter's singing was always perfect, but this short
portion of a medley was perfect for her voice.

This version may be better than the original which was sung by Shelley Fabares.Karen
Carpenter had a beautiful angel like voice,

Her voice turn my bad moods to good.

I could listen to nothing other than 1:10 to 1:24 for the rest of eternity and be
perfectly happy. It is hard to believe that I appreciate Karen Carpenter's voice even
more as I age, since I have thought she was the perfect singer since the days when
all of these songs were first released. What a miracle she was, and still is.

Karen, you will be loved until the end of time

SHE'S A LEGEND! her memory lives on

so young, so beautiful, so successful, so short-lived .. let's remember Karen
Carpenter as the best singing sensation ever.

simply divine!!!

what can I say..........perfect

No one ever had a voice as intimate and present as Karen Carpenter.

I shiver when i listen to her voice.What a great LADY she was.

She is an angel now.

One of the best songs ever, Tony is superb and I can't find the words worthy of Karen's voice.

I don't think there has been anybody since to match the quality and personality Karen
had in her voice. she was a true one of a kind.

Just think of how many hits Karen would have if she were alive today! She was a total
superstar!

damn, she was a beautiful lady

Without a doubt... one of the most beautiful, effortless voices of all time.... Thank you...

one of the best voices EVER

Beautiful. Nobody can sing this like she did.

Listening to her voice is a gift from heaven

Baby..this sweet ANGEL voice always live in my mind..
I thank to the God,I have met this sweet voice through in my life..

Those were the days MY friends !!!!!

Karen was the greatest vocalist ever. She couldn't be touched. You can feel it
way down inside of you. Karen truly used her magnificent voice as an instrument.

Voice of the century without a doubt. Pure, strong, undefiled.

Absolutely beautiful...one of the most expressive voices of all time, soft like
velvet. Full of sweetness and emotion.

It's undeniable- Karen is an untouchable! Her voice is so full of emotion, any song
can make you think of a time in your life, a love of your life..

with due respect to Celine
Karen Carpenter is untouchable !!
Nobody can be better than Karen Carpenter in her own style and songs

this is the most perfect song ever sang. Her voice is so creamy and smooth that
you never get tired of hearing her. A++++++

What a voice,so mellow !

Haunting..simply haunting. Wonderful.

Just awesome! Awesome!

Doesn't matter who she was, what she did, how she died or how long ago it was.
She had one of the most beautiful voices ive ever heard. Brilliant.

Totally brill! Chills down my spine

She really did touch ALL no matter what religion, race, or gender. She was one unique individual.

I remember the two times that I saw my tough guy dad cry; once was at the
movie ET, the other was when he heard the news of Karen Carpenter's death.

This woman is amazing! I place her as "top 1" female singer!!

Never will be another voice as lovely as Karens! When she passed away I was the
supervisor in radio central on a US NAVY destroyer. We were in the indian ocean
and i was reading the news as it was coming across the teletype. My eyes welled
up with tears when I read of her passing.

Try to find a voice like this nowadays.....

karen had the voice of an angel, one of the most beautiful voices of all time. she was a
class act. R.I.P. KAREN

She truly had a haunting voice. There was no one like her and there never will be.

in my oppinion she has the best female voice, great control, great low notes, just perfect!

i think shes the best female singer ever

I'd never heard this version, but NOBODY can compare to Karen Carpenter's voice. WOW....

On listening to Karen's Desperado, I feel as if being told be honesty for through life from
Karen's sweet voice in the heaven..

I am going to visit Karens grave bfore I pass away! I miss her so much and that voice of hers!

There will never be a voice as pure, Angelic and honest as Karen's.

brilliant....true legends never die..that voice...that voice...

Karen ABSOLUTELY blew me away with this song. I'm speechless. Seriously.

Who else could do justice to a song like this except Karen? What was she
19 or barely 20 when she recorded this? Incredible ability and vocal
maturity at such a young age.

Karen, you still still bring chills in my spine you swaeetie!

I am a military man and cry when I hear this! DAMN!

Simply awesome, this beautiful song gives me peace and your beautiful voice makes me
feel so good I know God is very pleased, simplemente una bella canción.

Karen Carpenter still brings chills to my spine!

She was truly a talent that is still missed. Karen, Hope you finally found the peace you
so sorely deserved.

Karens memory will live on forever!

the most beautiful voice and sweet in the world, always in my memory , for ever kare, from Chile, Jaky

This song is truly a masterpiece of singing.

She has a voice sent down from the heavens. Too bad the heavens called her back so soon.

She's been gone for 24 years, yet her music is still the best. No voice yet has matched Karen's.

No doubt she had one of the greatest voices in the history of music.

Karen has the most perfect female voice of all time to me! Beautiful!!

Wow! I listen to a lot of music but very few voices make my eyes tear. What an amazing,
incredible beautiful voice! RIP Karen.

I was WAY too young to appreciate her in '71, but now, I hear this voice and it is the most beautiful
one I've ever heard. Amazing.

surely one of the greatest female vocalists of all time.

I can honestly say a part of me died the day I heard Karen Carpenter had passed away. The most melodic
and beautiful female voice of all time.

I don't think there is anyone who can touch her. She had the most beautiful singing voice i've ever heard.

i really really love her voice !

the greatest natural voice you will ever hear in your lifetime...something commonly admitted from
every race and every genre...the tone and balance of her voice was imcomparable.

karen: you are in my best memories-

Just an amazing voice which is simply unforgetable and timeless!!

the most beautiful voice and sweet in the world, always in my memory , for ever kare, from Chile, Jaky

Karen had the prettiest voice ever. Such a shame she's not around...

this song penetrated into my soul very deep.. sigh

will there ever be another like karen wow what a voice

Karen had it all. a beautiful woman inside and out, a phenominal voice and the soul of an angel.

Tears on my pillow. Karen was the Princess of music.

i am a huge fan of celine, but no there's no comparision. karen's voice is a dream, celine has a
beautiful voice too, no doubt about that, but she has a powerhouse voice, but she does remind
me of karen when she actually sings her ballads like "falling into you" and "fly" but there's no karen
voice, except karen.

Celine a reincarnation?? HA! she wish! She is good but there is no-one like karen

the best in the world ,what a voice

I was born years after her death, but ever since I've discovered these songs, her talent never ceases
to amaze me. Karen's death proved loss of a wonderfully talented woman.

Karen will always be remembered. She has one of the finest voice ever!

I don't think any celebrity death (although always sad) has brought me such profound sadness
as Karen's. Whenvever I stop long enough to think about it (or watch a video on You Tube), I'm
almost brought to tears. What a gift she was to humanity.

A voice unsurpassed - PERIOD!

On Feb.,4th ,I had gone to see a sad movie. I promised myself not to cry. I need not cry, until I left
the movie and heard that God had taken Karen away to a better place. I will remember that day
forever. It's hard to believe that 25 years have gone by. RIP our dear Karen.

very moving song from the queen of music

Its quiet and snowing and Im alone listening to this and I adore that girl,makes me cry.

The emotioms in the song are resonating me.

whAT A WONDERFUL VOICE!!!! EXCELLENT...

Karen singing: Don't Cry For Me Argentina;
I've heard this song so many times from so many different artist... but I can tell you this one is
definitely the best one! I've never believed Karen would reach such high notes!

Karen! always in my heart.....

Karen is truely an angel from Heaven - with her truly angelic and one of a kind mesmerising voice!
The Carpenters are truly irreplaceable of their time and since! Miss you greatly!

Gone for almost 25 years and still no one has come along with a better pop voice- truly she was
one of a kind

No such talent exist today.

She had the voice of an angel! How can we ever forget her....??

One note and you know it's Karen. She is exquisite.

Great poetry! Amazing song!!!
I'm crying and hearing the voice of an angel called Karen.

What a voice !!!

I am only 19 but she touched my heart!

When karen died the word lost a valuable singer and lady when they lost karen but her music
will always keep her a live.Her voice was one of a kind and it touched your heart she was my
favorite singer and she always will be.

She was the best back then,and she is the greatest now ! LOVE HER......

im into hard rock , but this is the best female voice of all time

Her voice is so perfect she brings tears to my eyes.

she did have the perfect voice. why do the best ones leave us so quickly? maybe to perform
in the heavenly choir?

Karen Carpenter's voice is so sincere and unspoiled. Every song sounds like it is from the heart.

The ethereal voice of Karen Carpenter is a great legacy to music lovers around the world. Thank
you for sharing such a beautiful voice which may not have sung the aria strictly in the classical
sense but which brought tears to my eyes! That's what singing is all about - singing from the heart.

As we come up to 25 years since Karen passed away, it`s great to see this classic song has
affected many of us in a very real way.......hope somewhere she knows we will never forget.

Amazing vocals on such a lovely tune, Karen, you are missed!! What a gorgeous melody from
the voice of an angel which moves me to tears whenever I listen to it!

This vocal is just perfection. Angels walk amongst us but can't always stay too long. She
couldn't, but we at least have this.

Karen had a stunning voice - nobody has ever come close to it . . .

R.I.P. Karen..., thank you for the music.

Yes, Karen is the best that we know...

this song will last forever hundred of years later or thousands of years later, this
song will always be as pure as it is....the melody karen's voice and spirit will live
on in this song forever!!...!!!

*****5

The world has losted a beautiful and talented
singer and will never be forgotten

No one can sing like Karen! The most unique voice in a long time!

The world lost a totally amazingly unique talent when Karen passed away. She
might gone but her voice and the music that the carpenters created will live on
forever and will never be forgotten. RIP Karen.

Karen had one of the purest voices that the music world has ever known.
God do I miss her!

If i could have anybody's vocals i'd have hers.

God created Heaven and Earth...and then he created...KAREN CARPENTER!!!...

Great talent. The world has gone to hell since talent no longer matters. I can't listen
to the music of today, it is such crap. God bless Karen Carpenter.

Yes the voice of an angel for sure! I agree, this was one of their best songs. I'm
sorry but there is no current singer who can emote such emotion and angst as
she did in this song.

Wish she was around today because this voice is ethereal and unforgettable...

She is the only artist that I have ever heard that sounds like she means what
she sings in all of her? songs....makes me melt

If it were possible for Karen Carpenter to be live, on stage, along with all those
others you mentioned to sing individually, without any electronic tweaking and
in a studio, Karen Carpenter would put em all to shame!

She had the purest singing vocals probably ever, just ask Streisand!

the most pure and flawless voice I've ever heard

She was beautiful and had a unique voice...
nobody will EVER sing as sweet as Karen did
:)

The #1 song played at weddings for many years

I want this song by Karen played if ever I die. This song haunts my life from here
to eternity.

I think this woman had one of the most unique voices ever. She had a depth of
soul and feeling few can attain.

She is still today my very favorite singer of ALL time. She had a richness in her
voice no one can touch.

Still gives me goosebumps. WHATTA VOICE!!!

the voice, and the spirit of karen carpenter will live forever.

I had the distinct opportunity to attend her wake and funeral...a very surreal day.
One that I shall never forget.I miss her more each day and truly hope her legacy
continues to light fires in the hearts in the young ones as it did with most of us
so many years ago. I mis you KC & Love you beyond measure.
Your Bud,
Robs - BestKACFan

incredible the positive effect Karen Carpenter has on people to this day
RIP

The Internet can be the worst thing ever invented but these songs make it the best
thing ever invented since it allows us to see and hear Karen Carpenter any time we
desire. This is one of the few aspects of this technology I'm thankful for,

Here velvet voice will live forever.

I guess in a way people of my generation were quite lucky to have had such a lady with
an angelic voice piping through the radio. Maybe we took it for granted as we really had
such stellar music back then. But looking back now upon her sad passing, I don't believe
the world of music has ever again encountered such a beautiful and melodic voice such
as Karens

OMG! Like the most phenomenal female vocalist in human history.

No voice can ever match hers!

hey noobie. the carpenters "never" did lip sync. they always did live performance. something
you "had" to do in the late 70's early 80's unlike the crap they do these days.

Just the purest voice ever. No theatrics. Just perfect pitch.

I really miss this kind of pure talent! Karen was truly a gifted singer. Sooo sad she left us
too early. I love to sing her songs because it seems nobody is singing them!
With all the un-talented people making it in the music industry having undeserved fame
cause they're cute or have a nice body or can dance a little. The young female artist out
today need to take a look @ Karen Carpenter (real, raw, pure, talent) Take notes young
ladies!! You are truly missed Karen (R.I.P)

find me a contemporary female singer who can hit a not like THAT. I bet you can't. Simply
gorgeous!

best performer of all times love you karen!

SPEECHLESS>........wow.....so smooth and jazzy and her voice...clarion....knock
you out ! I'll never get over her and I'll never forget her...either ! xoxoxo

Better version than Leon Russel. What a voice Karen had!

just a beautiful voice nobody like her..

Absolute musical bliss! All the Britneys and Pussycat Dolls have nothing to be
proud of when compared to these two pinnacle divas: Karen and Ella. Long may
they live in our hearts.

The vocal take you're hearing of Karen was done in one take. She sounded
amazing 'live'

They accomplished the greatest mission of their lives, which was going immortal
thru pure music genius. I could never think Karen Carpenter could match so much
The First Lady Of Jazz in a duet. With such voices, Heaven is for sure a heavenly
place to live.

never again will you hear such an absolute effortless talent...she just opened her
mouth and effortlessley this is what happened...

there was absolutely nothing wrong with her body and for sure not with her voice
or talent.Best voice ever...period.

I have never, ever, heard another female singer that sounds anywhere near this
good. Celine Dion is probably the best today, but Karen was better.

What a sweet mellow voice she had, a jewel among jewels, a terrific talented
performer that comes along only once in a lifetime. She is still dearly missed.

She was the best singer in the whole entire world.

I am a huge Frank Sinatra fan, and in my opinion, Frank was the greatest. However,
Frank did not have the voice of Karen Carpenter. She had the best pure voice(like
velvet) that ever lived. She is the best female vocalist I have ever heard. Bar none.
No one even comes close. Just listen to any of her songs.

Wow her voice is one of a kind. No one sings like this anymore

perfection! i could listen to her heavenly voice 24/7. RIP Karen, you are missed.

a lot of singers sound the same these days, but she is definitely an original. no
one has her beautiful voice.

If I had to listen to one voice the rest of my life it would be Karen's. Nobody but
nobody has to the incredble tones and sells a song like Karen did. Tremendously
soothing voice.

Being Good is far more important than believing in Good, and she was really Good.
Thank you, Karen. Thanks for bringing sunlight into our lives. We love you now and
forever.

The world lost one it's finest when we lost Karen back in 83'.

Nobody will ever touch Karen's talent and angelic voice. God put her here to remind
us that perfect miracles still exist, then he took her, because he wanted her. I don't
blame him.

Karen is the queen of music in my heart. She was totally one of a kind and the
earth was lucky to be graced by this angel!

The most perfect version ever recorded, one of best voices I've ever heard.

Beautiful song, great video. One of the best voices ever.

This makes a grown man cry !

there are no words to describe her voice....i think and think and can't find them. her voice is
out of this world!!!!!!!!!!!!!

every time when a search for new songs of The Carpenters i am amazed by Karen s voice,
and now i am a fan , I remeber when a was a kid my foks listen to the Carpenters too.

The small cracks in the voice . . . the perfect timing and intonation . . . Richard's beautifully
crafted arrangement . . . simply incomparable . . . where do we get another one like that?

awesome recording, her voice was that great that shed often do a track in one take, an that
was subsequently the released version. yes this was just a track laid down for the musicians.
wow!! you can just hear the raw emotion from karen in the song. perfect vocal i'd say,
especially as it wasn't even a single or album track.

The best voice of my lifetime!!!!

There has never been another voice to compare with her's and I doubt there ever will be
again. So unique, so melodic, so beautiful. You are still sadly missed Karen but your voice
will live forever.

this is the most touching song to me.karen's voice absolutely makes you want to cry every
time you hear her sing it

Karen had a great voice. So heartfelt in every word she sang.

This song is amazing and her voice is so pure and pierces straight to your heart.

In all honesty i never like the song solitaire until i heard this version by karen carpenter...jus
show how good she is..ppl simply use the word legend nowadays..but karen is indeed worthy
to be called a music legend..

she's awesome! plays the drums and sings at the same time. hands down to her. she's great and
one of the most respected singers i admire alot.

Class! Pure Class! Karen sang and it moved our souls... this gutter trash prono that passes for
music these days is just a waste of any talent that may once have been. The minstrals are gone
and the prostitutes have taken over for the Muse.

she is a angel her voice touches my heart god bless you karen for your amazing music xxxxx
xxxxxxxxxx

Karen, You are always here forever...!

One of the finest vocalist ever. She's singing in heaven now. That's where she always belonged.

Simply, a beautiful song sung by a lady with an angelic voice, one for the ages, for all to enjoy!

she has the best voice of any female singer in recorded history.

Beautiful song sung by a very special talented
lady . Voice from heaven and all of her songs touch my heart .

She have a wonderful nature pure voice, she sounds like an angel. Rest in Peace Karen, I miss you

Best voice ever, I truly miss her.

karen..is world famous..she touches latinos,blacks,asians,aliens,heaven above and best of all
love is the universal language people understand and response. God bless u karen..ur voice
heals us and deeply touch us all

Karen looks fine here. The quintessential girl-next-door. The type you DO take home to meet mama.

Karen will forever live in our hearts and minds just as she was when she died. We never seen
her get old and wrinkled and eventually her voice and her slip away. But we get to listen to all
these one of a kind beautiful songs.

Karen was the perhaps one of the sweeetest voices of the pop songs in the 70´s, you cannot
avoid enjoying her sound every time you listen to her songs.

What a voice! She's the sweetest singer to ever walk on the face of this planet!

Karen will NEVER be erased from my memory!

How beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've always loved her sound...voice inflection, range, controled vibrato, dead on clarity of note, timing
and on and on and on....what a loss to the music industry!!

karen the best singer she is perfect all the songs are great she always touches my heart and a few
tears too god bless you karen x

the music of today is nothing compared to this..listen to this voice, awesome!

her voice is very melodic, like no other

Karen in my opinion is number one and always will be when you compare her to todays music.

She was the greatest singer of our generation. I completely agree with you, BestKacFan.

Karen is number one in my book period!

Karen is my all time favorite female vocalist.
What a fabulous voice, so velvety sweet...

She was the greatest back then ,she is the best now miss Karen ....

Incomparable!

RIP Karen you were simply the best.

A marvelous voice!!!

kAREN'S VOCAL mASTERPIECE. There was no one like her, & I miss her more with the passing of the
years. I saw them 4 times, & In person, she was even better. God Bless You Karen Ann.

One of the most beautiful voices and souls. Still get chills whenever I hear Karen C. Wish she was here today!

Awesome. Have not heard this in many years. Yes, Karen's voice is beautiful. No one can compare.

Watch her facial expressions as she sings in the studio. Talk about feeling your music...

A star on earth, a star in heaven. The most talented female singer who ever lived. Period.

karen best female vocalist what a voice heaven to listen to !!!

Karen wherever you are now, you must know that you had the most beautiful voice that was heaven sent.

I remember the day Karen died. I was working in Jacksonville, Illinois in a sheet metal shop. Listening to the
radio, I was shocked, what can I say. We miss you Karen.

Beautiful, melancholy angel, with that uniquely haunting voice. Karen lives.

Greatest female vocalist of our generation.

No one Can Compare to Karen Carpenter, The Best to this date, Voice was Flawless

I've been listening to this amazing voice for over 30 years, and it's still as distinct and moving as the very first
time I heard it - what a wonderful gift for so many of us to cherish - her amazing voice.

Sends a tingle down my spine. Just beautiful!

That voice..........
The unparalled beauty, it makes you want to weep in awe.

Clearly one of the purest, most beautiful voices of all time...... We are so fortunate to have experienced her
talent in our lifetimes,,,

She was fantastic .. and to think we are still listening to her voice and the carpernters .. many years later .. and
appreciating it .. she was brilliant ..

What a beautiful talent. Her voice just makes you stop in your tracks...it is timeless.

Your voice is like velvet and even softens a heart of stone. So sad we have lost you, the most beautiful and
moving singer of all time. You're beloved of the gods and your incredible voice stays with us, immortal.
R.I.P. Karen.

People always talk about her beautiful voice, but I always thought she was really pretty, too. I've always admired her.

There is a deep melancholy in her voice. Hear 'Crescent noon'!

karen your voice makes me feel like no other music can, god bless you

She had the most amazing voice i've ever heard.

i can sleep to these people, fantastic, all stresses and strains just ease away

she was awesome, her voice was just incredible

without a doubt the best female vocalist ever. think of all the wonderful music we would have if she were still with
us! but the legacy she left us is incredible. there will never be another like her. can't get enough of her. may she
rest in peace.

Karen has, in my opinion, the most beautiful voice of any women that ever recorded music. watch any video or
listen to any song, she's pitch perfect every time. The world lost a treasure when she passed. God bless Karen

Her voice is not enhanced like so many!!
Only one takes required to produce an Alban!!
No other singer can say that!!
Thats a fact!!!

so sad...she died way too early - if she was alive - she'd only be 59,still singing,and a Living Legend!

Karen Carpenter never hit a bad note.

Without you Karen, this earth is like a bird without a song.
One can only fathom the beautiful melodies you had in your heart that we will never get to hear. Perhaps,
someday in heaven. May God bless you Karen.

this song is to beautiful to describe. this will always be a classic and i will always cherish this song

My baby cousin was crying one day.
I sang this to him and all of a sudden he stopped and smiled at me.
=' D

every time i hear this song i nearly burst into tears XP

maybe the most wonderful female voice of all times

Beautiful song, almost as beautiful as Karen voice wich is heavenly sublime!!!!

She had one of the most beautiful voices ever and the girl could do it live!

Marge and Homer Simpsons' Song

man this is what you call music!

Such a shame that music this beautiful was often mocked in the mainstream and I'm sure that contributed to
her demise. It does not seem possible that someone so beautiful with such an amazing voice could not be
appreciated by everyone. I'm a Dan Fogelberg fan, and he suffered some of the same. I saw a show where
Bette Midler dedicated this song to her, and that was sweet. You're not exaggerating: once in a
lifetime. "Karen. This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you..."

kg6120, totally agree! In my humble opinion, best female vocal ever (Karen, not just the song).

Singing doesn't get any better than this.

Karen Carpenter was so beautiful inside, outside, and her voice tops them all.

She even can sing a word (loneliness at 1:33). Fucking unbelievable.

supper singer....

Such heartbreaking emotion is expressed in the performance of this song and in Karen's facial expressions.
She sang as though she were feeling the lyrics personally.
My favorite singer ever
Jim Koenig

I don't think any vocalist can convey such melancholy beauty as she does in this song. my favourite
carpenter song

One of the best songs of one of the Best Voices known to mankind .

O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G
Much loved & much missed - Still - xXx

"But you're not really here, it's just the radio"
Oh, Karen.. how that line strikes like a dagger to the heart.

Her voice is amazing, her lower registry even more so.

They aren't old-fashioned in Canada. I just sang this song last night at a karaoke bar and everyone
knew the song very well!

greatest of all time

Isn't her voice the best!??? She was incredible....I just love THE CARPENTERS, I've read where so
many real Rock and Rollers back in the day were embarrassed to like them but were secret fans
(if you love and appreciate great music, how can one not be a fan right?

They were just the best - yep, just the best!

if only she realized just how beautiful she actually was, and oh that voice is truly one of gods
miracles. the voice of an angel

I love the song. Her voice is so beautiful, was and will always be one of the best female
singers of all time.

The Eagles do it well. But doing it well can`t compare to this. Awesome.

you are the one carpenter!!!!!!!!

She was one of the best voices all over the history of music.Carpenters a group of
sixties and seventies take part of an unforgetable time.

She had a great voice, she could go up and down with such ease, I have not heard
another like her.

NO one could EVER compete with Karen Carpenter.

elle me fait pleurer. It making me cry and i'm knowing this loving sentiment. I'm french
and is a simple song. farewell karen you're in paradise now singing this pretty song

Was there ever a more beautiful voice to grace the earth? Not in my opinion.

That's the purest voice in the business folks!!!

Beautiful! There will never be a voice quite like Karen's...it always touches the heart
& soul! RIP KAC

Given all the "divas" running around the music world today, I can't think of a better
vocalist than Karen was.

IM AN INDIE KID. BUT THEY! dont make songs like this anymore.

Karen, please send us a sign.Please let us mortals that there are angels and that your
soul filled voice will be heard again

The most beutifull and talented female singer ever. ENOUGH SAID

Damn! Karen Carpenter was such a natural. I can imagine that she went into the studio
and knocked this out in maybe a one or two takes. I don't know, but she just sounds
like she had that ability. American Idol hopefuls should listen to her and see how a real
American Idol should sound like. Natural but very professional.

This is a beautiful version of this song, Miss Karen had one hell of a voice.

best voice...every time...

Karen had the most perfect voice any singer past or present. A truly sad loss to to the
music world.

even many people may disagree, for me, every song by Karen are better than the original.

....omg that VOICE....so haunting, so perfect...i think she has the most flawless voice
in music!

never again will you hear such an absolute effortless talent...she just opened her mouth
and effortlessley this is what happened...

I think this woman had one of the most unique voices ever. She had a depth of soul and
feeling few can attain. I remember when she died, I felt a keen sense of loss in that she
touched me with her voice, the emotion she projected and he ease of which the notes
and lyrics flowed.

Still gives me goosebumps. WHATTA VOICE!!!

She is still today my very favorite singer of ALL time. She had a richness in her voice no
one can touch.

My grandfather cried the day she died. What a voice, what a woman.

I too believe she had the greatest female voice of my lifetime- no one can touch her to this day!

Karen had a mesmorizing voice that cant be beat to this day!

Even in death, Karen Carpenter can kick the everlasting SHIT out
of Britney Spears and the rest of today's oversexed, fake hype.

im teen but i like karen so much it always makes me cry wen i hear
some of her songs and touches my heart....it gves me hope

i love the carpenters... i'm only 15.. but i love them.. their songs.. it makes
me cry... i like rnb and such.. but these songs... they really get to me.. i love them...

I grew up with the Carpenters. I was born in 1964! Karen and Richard cranked
out the greatest music ever heard and some fantastic wedding music I have
ever heard!

One of my childhood favorite. I'm just speechless listening to this beautiful
melody and lyrics.

The most nostalgic song I've ever heard!

I cannot listen to Karen Carpenter without tears in my eyes! She always rips my heart to
pieces! It is so sad she died so young. She was and still is one of a kind. I hate singers of today!!!

i could just listen to karen's voice forever.

Magic ... Karen is reality Golden Voice ... Dream Song ... Forever ...

karen n richard...ur always d best.

This is revelatory to me...I grew up practically hugging my parents stereo speakers
listening to this...OMG, I can't tell you......:')

wat a beautiful voice she was a legend she brings memories bck for me love her to bits

one of a kind voice.there will be never be another one like hers.

angelic voice from heaven

Gosh!! I really love this song your the best in the whole wide world!!!

I once heard someone call her voice mezmerizing, and that is exactly it.

I have yet to hear a voice like Karen's and probably never will in my lifetime.

After listening to her voice more times than I can count, it still send chills
up my spine. She touches the soul like no other singer.

"The Voice"...
The one and only....

superstar,a real superstar. still missed.

Her voice sounds so sincere,you can feel every word not matter how much you listen to it.

Was there ever a singer with such a pure, honest, & heart-touching voice than Karen's?
I think not...Perfection! We may never understand why God in his wisdom took her from
us far too soon, but how fortunate & blessed we are to have these recordings of her 'peerless'
sound.

Just listen to the sound...pure genius music!

Do you know even John Lennon rated Karen as the most promsing singer when he heard
her!!! Now that is an accolade from a great artist!! Cant get better than that!!

i think this is the best english song i've ever heard.sometimes i feel lost in her wonderful
voice and have a feeling of happiness when i listen to it!

She will always be loved and missed. No one will be able to replace her, no matter how
hard they will try.

The best voice of anytime. No one is better. Just try and prove it.

RIP Karen. you were the greatest. no one can match your voice. you'll always be missed.

they have exelent lyrics and Karen has THE voice

Nothing special? I think it's a matter of opinion. How anyone could say that about one of the
best, most pure voices ever to hit our ears...well I guess everyone has different taste. But
she is far, far far from "nothing special".

Karen is one of the only two people who have ever had a perfectly toned voice.. Judy Garland
was the other

Karen Carpenter had the best female voice EVER. Yeah, there have been some very good
voices like Olivia Newton-John, Petula Clark, Brenda Lee, Mary Wells, Gladys Knight etc,
but Karen was in a league of her own.

Beautiful song, shame she is no longer with us as she had an awesome vocal range; without
doubt one of the best!

Heaven's choir sounds incredible I'm sure with her there!

Carpenters the Best of the Best!!

Karen had the most beautiful voice in pop music, period.

she has the sweetest voice. You can fall in love with her listening her singing

Throughout all of her vocals, I have never heard her make a mistake or hit the wrong
note !! Her voice was absolute tonal PERFECTION !!!!

Wow... Just wow.

singers dont better than this ever

Hands down the best female vocalist ever in the pop/rock genres.

Very few words needed. Heart-wrenchingly beautiful.

How a Wonderful angelic voice and angelic eyes and a pretty face :) so talented why
did you die karen carpenter :( by the way your alive in our heart , :)

Incredibly fresh vocals and masterfully played solo on guitar. Karens voice is the
most recognizable...

best female singer who ever lived, she was so pretty too! :) I wish music was
this good nowadays!! WE STILL LOVE YOU KAREN!

beautiful lady, AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL voice............ LEGEND FOREVER XXX

even on the shittyest misrable winters day this song makes it sort of sunny

she has no second to compare, her voice is the sweetest. may allah give her
courage and joy to live long.

What an incredible voice

Love u, Karen. U make me feel love the life more ! :)

this is my mom's fav. band, "CARPENTERS" 3 ILOVE ALL OF THER SONGSS SO MUCH..

thats the true voice!!!

Flowers to Karen, forever @>--->---

Being a native of Louisiana where EVERYONE, elderly or child, here knows that song (Jambalaya)

Karens voice - one in a million or billion.

Karen dressed, and acted like a lady. I guess there's no room for that... anymore.

Karen has the most beautiful voice and she can sing any song with ease ,grace
and charm any who care to listen . She is truly missed by all of us who were
enchanted with her performances.

absolute vocal magic by a singer who never fails too give me goose bumps

Her Voice was just Amazingly Beautiful..I will never forget her! EVER!

Karen Carpenter was one of the purest voices ever. How many singers are there
recorded with this level of clarity?

voices like that come by every couple decades

Completely right Kotsu as a matter of fact she was one of the greatest singers
in her style ever......

Prettiest singing voice ever.

A friend who is a rock drummer says that among drummers its common to hear that
Karen carpenter was actually excellent. They say there was something unique about
her drumming. I'm not a musician so I don't know. That's what I've heard tho.

The quality of this woman's voice was off the charts. I can't think of another female
vocalist in the past 50 years who can even compare. Her haunting tones and effortless
style made me fall in love with her every time I heard her sing.

I can't with this song so sweet, I'm 17 and I'm in love with music like this, I found The
Carpenters music and I won't leave it. I have to thank to the people who posted it and
the magical musicians who made this cuz the world need so much love and music.

Each time I listen to Karen, my eyes overflowed ! Always in love with her !

Her voice make me happy...

I adore her, always and forever. Her voice is one of the best of my lifetime.

the best singer ever. she just sang a song simple. No acrobatics. she did not
need to. just great singing and great love songs of loss, hope and longing.

Karen had the most beautiful and meaningful voice EVER. No schreeching or up
and down the scale vocal acrobatics that we hear these days. So true to the
melody and just so blissful to listen to.

The most beautiful female voice of all time. I cried the day I heard of her
passing. Miss you and love you Karen.

Karen...Karen...Karen....where are u? Your voice is my best dream....

greatest voice ever!!!

The one's everybody knows are Karen 101, but this is Karen 404 -- where she
goes to levels others couldn't reach, as Petulah Clark once said.

When I desciribe the voice of Karen Carpenter I describe it as mesmorizing!

Miss ya Karen... You are the greatest vocalist ever.. No one can top you...

The best voice ever recorded on vinyl. Love you karen.

Actually, Karens voice was more like 1 in 6.8 billion. (the total population of the world)

The article stated that, "Karen cut many songs in only one take." The truth is she
was an extremely gifted singer with a voice that comes along once.

Karen had the best voice than any singer of today! The singers of today sound like tramps!

without doubt the best voice in the world bar none

she has a voice that can calm a savage beast. how beautiful.

even live, her voice was flawless!

karen is, and allways will be, number1

When someone such as Alice Cooper says The Carpenters and especially Karen were
the best! Suddenly you realize that Karen was a gifted singer and like Elvis, there will never
be another Karen Carpenter. We lost the most talented female singer ever on 02-03-83. If
she had lived another 40+ years, I can only imagine what she would have accomplished.

Karen Carpenter had the most commercial voice I ever heard. Right in the fat part of the
mid-range -- her voice just cuts through any medium.

to be fair to Madonna, she knows her limitations and has often described Karens voice
as the best she has ever heard. So credit where credit is due

she was the best nothing can be said other than that

Yes, I would say she is definitely better than Streisand. Karen's voice is beautiful and
clear. she didn't have to add fancy scale and octave progressions, like most singers today
try and do. Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate Beyonce's style just like anyone else, but
there is something special to be said when someone can uplift you with the simple beauty
in her voice the way Karen did.

This is probably the globally most well known song ever. I've grown up in China back many
decades ago and many people there already knew this song. I mean how amazing people
from different part of world started to listen the music that they dont even understand. And
I remember it was this version by Karen. What a master piece

Wonderful music!!! Thank you Carpenters and lots of love from Germany to all fans!

the most beautiful voice ever...i wish there was another like it but there is not..there are
good ones but no karen..r.i.p

There will never be another Angel quite like her.... Our loss!

You won't hear another voice like Karen.
Like a Stradivarius violin, no one knows how to make them anymore. She is one of a kind.

Her voice radiates intelligence, wisdom, and sensitivity.

Unforgettable Karen. 5 Stars.

I'd take her voice over anything out there in todays music world. Her voice was simply
amazing and its sad to know that she was taken from us so suddenly.

Karen's voice REALLY gets to me. She is timeless and there hasn't been another voice
like hers, even since her untimely death.

I can't imagine anyone not being touched by this angelic voice.

No voice ever will replace the sweet voice of Karen Carpenter. If I had to choose only one
voice to listen to forever- it would be hers.

A very non-intrusive voice that grasps the listener who doesn't even realize what is happening.
Dead at 33! Sickening! But, alas, wehave cRAP and HIP-HOP to carry us on!
YUCK!

In my opinion, she has the most beautiful and soothing voice of any female singer past
or present. I can just fall in love with her singing, makes you feel so calm and relaxed. We
love and miss you Karen, you left us so early. May God keep you in his care.

one of the best female voice in history. This song still gives me chills.

karen thank you for all the songs that you sang for the world to enjoy. i know you are on top
of the world looking down on creation. every christmas season, i always play all your songs
for the past 30 years. may you rest in peace. God bless.

In my humble opinion - the finest voice ever. Thick like honey but soft enough to make me
cry . Meloncholy - what we feel probably most of the time- she get's it. Such an amazing
legacy - pity she was taken so soon. RIP karen - your wonderful light still inspires all of
us - if only you knew then just how special you are.

Almost 30 years later, her loss is so very tragic. Her voice, her God given talent, her beauty,
her grace. There hasn't been a voice close to Karen's before nor since.

i enjoy it too..whitney and christina cant hold a ky to the simplicity of her voice

What a true earth angel! Her version of the song is so beautiful and haunting. So sadly
prophetic also. R.I.P. sweet Karen. Your gift lives on to bring us joy.

I had the pleause of seeing her perfom live. Absolutely unique. Transcended all age
groups. A voice for the ages. I will love you forever Karin.

One of the most beautiful and moving voices ever to be heard....thank God we can still
listen to Karen...

the greatest alto voice ever recorded

r.i.p. karen you had the most beautiful voice you are soley missed

I wanna cry, and sing, and pray. This song brings out so much. How utterly
beautiful Karen and Richard's music is.

one of the greatest female voices of all time. Imagine all that we missed if she
were still here

its the best vocal preformance ever

This has to one of the songs of the century!

A voice that can never be matched...

She has the best voice EVER. Forget your Mariah Carey's and Celine Dion's this woman
was amazing!

Please make sure the Carpenters get into the Hall of Fame as they truly deserve it!

There was such beautiful range in her voice. She moved so effortlessly from once
octave to the next. Their music was simply beautiful

Our loss is Heavens gain! Sing with the Angels Karen

Karen is beautiful inside and out!

if another person sings this music the result will be completely diferent. She is unreplaceble!!!

karen carpenter is far the best singer ever. her voice passes so much emotion that often
makes me cry! there will never be someone like her.

i am 17 and i love her voice its like an angels, and i think that she would be still be hear if
that person didnt shout at her that she was fat, such a loss of a wondefull singer and a
wonderfull person. her songs will always be remembered 4 ever. rest in peace karen.

The greatest female singer of All Time.

There will never be another Karen......NEVER....:)

I cannot imagine we will see an equal for her golden beautiful voice for a long, long
time. We miss you greatly Karen :(

Time cannot erase or diminish the stunning quality and heart wrenching warmth and love
of Karens voice. Such a loss and missed every single day since her passing. It's so
wonderful she spent enough time with us on earth to share this magical voice. It really
is unique. RIP.

Karen was an angel who was permitted a brief time on Earth. That can be the only
explanation for her Heavenly voice! I had the incredible pleasure of seeing her perform
in the 70's. Recordings can not do justice to her live voice.

A lot of people didn't know this but Karen Carpenter was actually a super hero.She
could literally melt people with her voice...Heaven wanted their angel back:)

For sure, Karen Carpenters still is The Perfect Singer of all times! Karen sings with all
her heart like an Angel. And when she was in Japan singing "SING" on the stage
along with Japanese children Chorus she showed the World how human she was !!!!

She has the golden voice that no one could sing alike today 2014.

A bit of God's finest work.

This song shows her incredible talent. She hits high and low notes to perfection. What a
talent she was. Nobody better.

Forgive my foul language, but she had one of the best , if not THE best fucking female
pop voices in history.. Fuck, i almost feel like crying everytime i hear her sing..The
emotional depth in her voice is unreal and not from this world.. Plain and simple..

and to think she was ONLY 21 years old here! THA'TS UNBELIEVABLE!.. ADD IN THE FACT
THAT THIS RECORDING WAS ON HER 1ST TAKE OF THIS SONG! TRULY, A ONCE IN A
LIFETIME VOICE! i know for me, the greatest female voice i've ever heard and will ever hear!..

Karen Carpenter recorded this song in one take. As a matter of fact, she was able to record
several of her songs in just one take. The mark of a true master.

Over thirty years ago Karen passed away, and the world lost an angel with a beautiful, haunting
voice, a voice touched by God. her like will never be seen again.

Growing up listening to Queen and The Carpenters, if I could sing like Freddie Mercury or
Karen Carpenter, what a dream that would be.Her tone and pitch are PERFECT and she plays
drums as well, GOD, how I miss you Karen. Karen you might be a bit sad to know, no one
has replaced you, your spotlight remains empty to this day,................sad. Love You
Always................

best of all time,..nobody could ever top this voice and nobody can equal it.

The world and the music industry lost one of the best singers of all time when we lost Karen
Carpenter.Her and brother Richard had so many great songs they put out together..Their music
truly to me is timeless..

The Greatest.

Yes she was the worlds best . No question about it. Superb in every way.

Had the smoothest voice of any women singer I've EVER heard.

Karen was simply divine. Even when she sinks into the haunting silence in the middle, she
is so beautiful. A precious angel.

I remember when this came out on the radio, glad i was there in that generation to enjoy that
incredible voice ! Im sure there was so much more to Karen than her gift !

One of the best voices of all time. Ive got chills. The true test of music. katy Perry is a joke
compared to Karen C.

Karen Carpenter a true Superstar. Thanks for the memories.

Still to this day I can't listen to Karen without getting goosebumps. :)

She was a true superstar. R.I.P. Karen......

Love to see if they can find a women who can sing like Karen...Todays women singers
are boring, No talent

This is real music. She is my favorite singer. That's real talent. I listend to about 10 seconds
of Nicky Minaj starship song and just about puked on the computer. This is music, that
other stuff is garbage.

EVERYONE LISTENS WHEN I START TO SING, karen, you never sung truer words, miss
you angel, god bless.xxx.

The first voice I truly fell in love with! Karen Carpenter was my hero.

This is real talent. No auto tune, just her voice :)

You could live 2 lifetimes and never hear a female singer sing as good as Karen did.

In my younger days I would have never thought that I'd see the day when I would rather
listen to The Carpenters than some hard rock but that day has arrived.

The loss of her was one of entertainments greatest tragedies. A sweet and unique soul.

She was pretty normal looking, but her beautiful soul really shone through. And she was
one of the very best vocalists ever. God bless her for bringing real sweetness into the world.

One of the finest artists and purest voices of the 20th century, her death was a tragic loss
to the world.

Karen sung with such ease. She is not straining every vein in her neck to get the vocals out.
Karen's voice is so soothing and smooth. She doesn't have that twang that some singers
have. Her voice is so clear and precise. Not only does she have a beautiful voice but the
songs that her and her brother wrote; such beautiful and substance filled classics. The
singers today can't sing and can't write a decent song if their lives depended on it.

Karen was amazing I been a carpenters fan since I was 17 I am now 40 one of the sweetest
voices I have ever heard god bless you Karen RIP Karen 1950 - 1983

The only female voice in history more beautiful said at a wedding,

Prettiest voice ever.

There are those who would disagree, but I think she was the greatest female vocalist of
the 20th century. Everything she sang she turned into something magic. So sad she was
gone so soon.....

One of the purest, most unpretentious, pitch perfect voices we will ever hear, in this life.

She could have rocked me to sleep singing every night. The most wonderful female
vocalist in my life......

Purest female voice in music EVER. I remember like it was yesterday watching tv and
they broke in with the news flash Karen Carpenter has died. I think I cried for an hour. It
absolutely broke my heart. So young and talented. She was such a genuine and sweet
person. My teen years have a lot of memories attached to her music. I felt like part of
my memories went with her. RIP Karen. FOREVER YOUNG.

What an extraordinary voice. You took a part of my soul when you took yourself away,
Karen. Damn you.

This is real music. No Dubstep, rap, hip hop. This is the type of music that brings a smile
to your face and tears to your eyes. Beautiful. :)

Her voice is a drug for me. I need to get my dose at least every second day. This girl I'm
just in love. When once I'm out of here I first met her there. I dream about this ...

nobody even comes close to KAREN nowadays.

ahhh....what a voice....this was the true American idol...America's Got Talent....and all the
other hogwash shows of disputed talent on the TV today...singers of today can't even come
close to her!! I miss the old USA when people like Karen Carpenter, John Denver, Harry
Chapin, Bee Gees were household names-- gosh I wish we could go back, it was a better
time in so many ways!!

Die Besten sterben immer zu früh :-(

Easily the most beautiful voice I have ever heard. So flawless!

The voice, the music, the part .......Every sha la la la la .. wow I can listen her songs
the whole night.

No one comes close to the beauty of Karens voice.I'm a man in my twentys this women
is an angel!

I grew up in the wrong era musically! This stuff is so unbelievable. I love the airy melodes
and the arrangements are second to none. Really awesome.

My karen just melts my heart every time? she sings! What an angel!
God Id marry her today!

Karen it is Christmas time and I am? Chrimassing to your music you
sweet pea! I will NEVER
forget you as you have the most mesmorizing voice of all time!

Karen Carpenter had the most smooth, velvety voice of all!

There is no comparison to Karen Carpenter period!

In my hole life, i never found a voice like that, great song, best singer. RIP.

One of the all time best that there ever was

The most perfect version ever recorded, one of best voices I've ever heard.

her voice has to be the smoothest and melodic in history

I'm an old rock head still am but Karen does rule

totally love her voice and her spirit while she sings, you cant find much of that left in our world today

Karen Carpenter In my opinion had and has the greatest female voice in recording history..Sorry, No
Question...Rest In Peace Karen. We'll love you forever...

Wow!!! Two of the GREATS in one frame! It is so sad we don't have greatness like this on the
airwaves today.

What a voice!............The most beautiful alto I have ever heard in my 50 years of life.
All the so called divas of today couldn't hold a candle to her vocally.

solid evidence that karen carpenter not only had the greatest, most pure, angelic voice of
this past century, but that she could take a formerly beautiful, classic song and bring it to
ever higher heights of beauty

Karen Carpenter had the most velvety smooth voice ever!

Karen Carpenter had the greatest voice by a female in music history.. her voice retuns us to a
time & place in our childhood we never lose.

Karen had the greatest voice! I've never had the sense that she ever knew that....

Karen had the best voice we'll ever find. Period, sadly. Whetever contemporary 'diva' you could
dredge up would be a pale comparison.

, but I still thing Carpenter stands head and shoulders above her. More tenderness, more emotion
in Karen's voice. You want to protect her.

God bless Karen. What a voice we lost

So very beautiful!

Karens voice is so beautiful, I cant begin to describe it!

Karen had a one-in-million voice.

She has a beautiful voice not exactly powerful like mariah's and whitney's. But
very soft and feminin that really reaches to the bottom of my soul. Beautiful.

Karen Carpenter is an original. When I hear her sing she just relieves all the
stress in me. She is probally one of the most talented singers of the 20th
Century (in my opinion).

She's the best singer in the world.

what a clean clean voice =o

the sweetest voice this world has ever heard

a voice like no other!!!!!A beautiful woman!Timeless music!!!!miss u very much karen!!!Bless u beauitful!!!

wonderful, spectacular, amazing, gorgeous

Karen had THE best voice EVER!

she has a voice that's incomparable! so smooth and clear...I love it!

karen's tone and phrasing have never been matched.Ann Murry came close,but Karen is the Queen of this genre.

she was the person with the most beautiful voice around the world

She had the most beautifull voice I've ever heard

Karen may be gone, but her voice still lives on in the memories of our youth.

WHAT A VOICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rest in Peace

Karen Carpenter, Sings like an angel and i love her voice.

This song we sing at JoKo ( a choir )
We sing in the netherlands version.
Beautiful!
Karen is the best singer ever!!

was there ever a voice quite like KAC's? Beautiful.

We can only hope someone comes along but There is only one voice like Karen's. Her vocal
change was unbelievable. Not only that you could understand every word she sang. Try to
find that in to days music.

is there someone like here today ;)),, ??? i love your voice very much ,,,

Karen, my idol forever...

hauntingly beautiful

One Word:
BEAUTIFUL!

This is the most heart-wrenching, moving vocal I have ever heard. There will never be another Karen.

This amazing woman never hit a bum note. This is live! Not touched by the tricks of the
recording studio. Karen you were amazing. You just cant find talent like this anymore.

The one and only!!!

The voice of an Angel, and now she is one.
Karen, Rest in Peace.

Karen has the most perfect voice in the whole world

I've been in music for many years and no female singer can get even close......though they
are many good one's . Karen is still #1.

Karen Carpenter is the best singer that I have ever heard. And this song is one of my favorites.

Super super klasse, just like an angel. Unbeleivable to have been born with a voice like
hers. And to anyone who says anything negative they haven´t got a clue about music
at all. One of the best voices that has ever existed.

I miss the great music of that time, too bad we have so much crap of today.

The velvet voice of Karen Carpenter,smooth as silk ,ohh what ear candy!

She has a holy voice! She was so spiritual and I think she was special blessed to sing like she did.
Her voice would be never forgotten and will be for ever one of the intensive and best in this universe.
Karen, you make me always happy and in good mood!

The best voice we ever have heard.
But, since 25 years, ...., I was at that time 18 old.
Fascination?
Yes, certainly, since I was 6 years old.
Noone have done it once again.
Best regards from Hamburg, Germany
Klaus
Die schönste Stimme, die wir je hatten, niedliche Texte, doch leider seit 25 Jahren ...
Gruss aus Hamburg
Klaus

i'm only 25 years old but i love the carpenters they were the frist group i really liked i rember
singing this song everyday till i got the words down...........REST IN PARIDISE KAREN

Just true bliss! Britney,Amy,Christina,Beyonce, "Dream on"

A perfect voice, so pure and other worldly. There will never be another like her.

I mostly listen to modern rock, but this will? always be one of my favorite songs.

i love this song, its beautiful...
my parents named me after her!

This song has a meaning to it that most bands and artists now-a-days cant reproduce, She
was a beautiful singer and lady and to think she died because of spiteful words is a crime
in itself. Whenever im down i listen to her and she seems to make my troubles
disappear, R.I.P Karen Carpenter. May the angels protect you with the words you taught
the world.

she was great..from guitar playin hard rock metal and classic rocking construction
worker..she has a beautiful sweet haunting voice.rip karen

The voice that IS Karen Carpenter...immortalized, as it should be.

Es gab und gibt viele großartige Stimmen doch keine hate die Wärme von Karen
R.I.P

This song IS Karen Carpenter whenever and whereever this song is sung it,
will be to the memory of Karen Carpenter

even live, her voice was flawless!

The truth is........ there are no words that can describe how beautiful karen's voice really is.

Karen's voice is so perfect and sensitive that even the low quality of the sound can't ruin
the music

Karen's voice has that special tone and timbre that is one in a million. It is so pleasing to
the ear, so crystal clear and so velvety smooth. What a voice!

what a voice ! she was absolutely incredible ! perfect pitch, amazing rich tone to her voice

Little known fact: Richard Carpenter still holds the world record for most consecutive top-10
singles. He even beat Elvis and The Beatles, imagine that!

this song brings back tears to my eyes,i was about 7 years old,wow

I love this song. My mum sang it to me and I sing it to my kids and they love it too - my 5
year old has it on repeat!!. Karen Carpenter will live on forever. I cried many tears when she
died - I was 14 at the time and her death was a big deal to me - like MJ now -,but she left
a legacy, Richard too.
XX

I am not vocalist. But it seems Karen can hold her breath longer while singing more than any
singer I have heard. I don't know how she does this.

I know everyone talks about Karen Carpenter's voice, and lovely and untouchable though it is,
the underlying parts from the band are just so incredibly impeccable it makes me want to cry.
Lovely half riffs from Richard on the keyboard and a a beautifully subtle backing band. Not a
single foot wrong anywhere, this song is as close to perfection as I think you can get

Karen Carpenter - A True Legend ! !
'The Voice of an Angel Straight from the Heaven' ! !
There WON'T be another Karen Carpenter ! !
Why was she taken away at such a young age? The music world is lot poorer without her
unique voice ! !
Although she's no longer with us, her songs will live in music lovers' hearts all around the world
forever ! ! They're timeless ! !
May God rest her soul always ! !
Thanks

I honestly can't think of a main stream female singer with a better voice. Karen Carpenter had
a voice that had fans all over the world.
Richard Carpenter often talks about leaving the Brown Derby in LA with Karen in the early 70'sa
and bumping ino John Lennon who said " I've got to say you've got a stunning voice". Praise
from the highest places indeed.
RIP Karen.

A beautiful voice like Karen's will never die. I believe that her voice will continue to touch peoples
hearts for generations to come.

No song ever had a better friend than Karen.

The finest voice ever recorded. The world misses you Karen.

Best female vocalist - EVER. Just love her x

I agree with everyone above. Karen had a wonderful voice, and it is such
a sad thing that she passed so young...
She burned bright and fast, and left a lasting mark on the world.

No matter how many times i hear this song its still in my opinion the best
song ever written and sung by the best singers in history.
TUNE = CARPENTERS Richard the genius and Karen the voice

I just can't stop listening it! Amazing!...
Very Beautiful voice!
This is Real Talent!

Wow, was there ever a voice more perfect? Pure and so full of emotion. When
I hear Karen sing I feel her joy and her sorrow, I live those feelings with her. Few
singers have the power to do that and that makes Karen so very special.

the best voice ever i belive

Only an angel sings like this !!!

Karen is so beautiful - her voice is heaven

Karen Carpenter is 'The Voice', as Elle MacPherson is 'The Body'. Karen and
her celestial pipes are collectively haunting and sublime - my favourite female
artist since I was a child.

Karen Carpenter is the Goddess of music!

karen was not only the greatest singer of all time but she was also beautiful

Karen's unique effortless voice is the voice of an angel. She has brought so much
joy to all who listen to her sing.

When you hear Karen sing...you immediately know it is Karen. Unique,haunting,pure.

Karen war die Beste !! Mit Liebe gesungen unvergesslich für alle Zeit

Wow what a voice! When I listen to this I feel the sorrow and emotions that Karen
felt. Her voice was truly amazing. No other singer has come anywhere near her in
terms of depth and feelings.

Beautiful song. They aren't given enough credit for how brilliant they really were.

Gosh Karen was such an awesome singer. Wow what a gift. She could sing happy
birthday and make you want to hear it over and over again. What a beautiful tone
in her voice.

eat your hearts out..new generation of today. This is the kind of music and golden
voice you surely missed. Music of today is merely an awful sound.

Ms Karen Carpenter was born to sing. And she didn't need gimmicks like Madonna,
Lady GA GA or cheap publicity like today's "singers". All she had to do was open
her mouth and mesmerize us with her angelic voice. No flashy clothes, no cheap
gossip or publicity to be in the spotlight or the tabloids. All she had to do was one
thing...SING...and leave all the rest of the singers in the dust.

The lady was too good for this World.
Thank you Karen & Rest In Peace.

my mom always sing this song since i was child...

this song is still very touching after so many years~~love !!!

Karen, you will always be our queen of music, always loved and remembered by all
of us even a few decades later from now...
Rest In Peace, Karen

Now here is someone who can sing!!!, Not like the bimbos that are touted as singers
today, jessica simpson, lady gaga, etc. They suck compared to Karen

The clearest, most beautiful voice God ever put on this earth!

Karen Carpenter was TRULY the finest vocalist of all time....her control of her voice,
delivering EVERY single note with such expressiveness and quality, has NEVER
been equaled, before or since....LOVE you Karen...You were TRULY the VERY best....

Beautiful woman and SONG. Cried to it many times!!!
Karen,,God rest your soul.....I bet he asks you to sing for him all the time!!!

i am in love with her voice!!!!!

You can no longer find an amazing voice like hers today!!!
Thank you for the wonderful memories Carpenters.

the sky have now an angel....karen carpenter

One word "BRILLIANT"

...sorry, I'm going to cry...

She is a legend.

Beautiful music.. I'm 27 and I can still appreciate this kind of music I grew up listening
to. Karen's voice was surreal almost unearthly .. the kind of voice that belonged to
that of angel.

I have never felt that way about any other singer. She was truly special.

Happy 60th Karen. Thanks for being the greatest singer who ever lived!

I'm more in too hardcore , but i must say that i like this song too.

When this plays, my wife sings it to me!!!
God bless you Karen....RIP. Tell the angels I said hello!

THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER.

for those of you who haven't figured out yet- Karen Carpenter was the best female
vocalist of the last 100 years...

god bless karen you were the best xx

Only one person can sing this song. The unforgetable Karen Carpenter

'when they get to the part when he's breaking her heart it can really make me cry'
Karen , your absence trully break our hearts and make make us all cry :(

A song from Karen;
Singers who try to cover this song is a waste of time. It`s like trying to re-paint
the Mona Lisa. It can never be copied.

I hear her incredible voice, and I read all the tender things that everyone has
written and I feel the importance of the music and the artistry of Richard and Karen.
It makes me feel connected to everyone who's posted. That's what real art is
about - the connection and the feeling.

If you had known how much people are going to miss you... You were this incredible
sunshine, who had that AMAZING voice. God gave you a bless, and you used it
wisely. So ''Thank you for the music!''

You were and always will be a "Superstar".
There will never be another voice like yours.

Karen's voice was so clear that it's almost eerie. Some vocal stylists try for years
to sound like that. HOW did she do it?

her voice blows my mind, can listen to her sing all day, she has an effect on my
mood, a true great, and im into sabbath, slade and nirvarna!

But a voice like that don't have to reach those high tones, ala Mariah Carey, to sound
good. It's beautiful just the way it was and it works that way.

I believe god puts angels on this earth for a short amount of time to bring us happiness
and joy. I think this is one of those angels.

karen is one of the most talanted women ever no one can beat her style and voice, richard
takes some credit for the success but most of it was all doing of karen, she is absolutley
gorgeous,

she is one of the few most beautiful voices in the World!. I am sorry we lost you but you
will be always in our hearts!
Turkish Fan

What a huge talent. Silky voice. What a shame that she died so young but her singing will live on.

God Bless and by the way I miss Karen terribly!

That poor woman never knew how much the world loved her and how much
it still loves her. God bless Karen

i LovE Karen! the voice of an angeL,

This is the best music ever!

Karen Carpenter..what a voice, one of the absolute best. Strong, big range..so full
of emotion.

This is beautiful, she had such a beautiful voice, GOD bless you karen!, you are
forever in are heart!

Karen, you were a gift from God and taken much too early...rest in peace lovely lady.

Karen your voice will NEVER leave me sweetie!

Richard and karen! You will never be forgotten!

Karen Carpenter is in my heart forever!

this is legend

such a pleasant voice and i love the lyrics. it is a great song no matter how you look
at it..........=]

your voice is beautiful every... well nearly anyway ur the most lovelyiest person i no
u never fade to us

I wish I could have brought Karen back! God is this possible?

I miss you Karen!

Good song number 1.

Just doesn't get any better than Karen...Greatest voice I've EVER
heard.Sucks that she is gone but at least we have a bundle of material
to replay over and over.We all get to enjoy the best music ever
created...likely never to be matched again.Thanks Karen for making
life a little more enjoyable in a world full of crap.

to this day there is not even one singer that can match Karen's voice you can imagine
if she was still alive.

to this day there is not even one singer that can match Karen's voice you can imagine if
she was still alive.

karen carpenter was at the height of lovliness here.

God.. She is not even putting any effort in to this preformance.. The only
other singer that I can think of that had that talent was the late Mama
Cass.. But of these two woman could be woken up in the middle of the night
and asked to sing and it wouldn't phase them. May both Cass and Karen Rest
in peace..

good musicians like this,you will never see again!

She was a beautiful person and a marvelous talent. Something you'd be hard-pressed
to find today.

Singing effortlessly is an amazing feeling. To be in control of your instrument as if it were
second nature, because that's what it is... second nature. To sing as think.

one of my very, very favorites ever.

i really envy those singers who don't have to belt it out to sound good... she's one of them.....

I think the most amazing thing about the Carpenters is the fact that they proved that
one can make really awesome music that's very squeaky clean. You don't need
swearing, sex, or violence in it that the industry is just so saturated with today.

Karen, you are still missed and remembered as having the most beautiful voice of all
all time and Richard for your hard work as manager and brother! God Bless both of you!

I am a man and I am in tears when I hear this song! Damn!

There has been and there will only ever be one Karen.

All the people (and there are so many) who say that Karen Carpenter was
an angel from heaven are right.

This girl has a one of a kind of a voice sent by a angel! God gave us
all a beautiful gift from a beautiful women,will we miss you so much
Karen and Thank you Carpenters.

It's a shame the way she died. But her voice has nothing to compare
with nowdays voices

this is the most amazing number i have seen from jambalaya...with the lyrics..
too gud

her voice has none to be found nowadays!! what a voice

What makes me marveled at Karen Carpenter is the fact that money never meant much to her. She
loved entertaining but at the same time had a deadly illness and never realized it, the sweet pea!

i think she was born to sing with that voice of hers, which has given pleasure to millions of people
and continues to do so a god given talent. she is the best singer ever, her voice and recordings
will live on 100's of years into the future

Construction workers love Karens music! Especially when they care about their women!

It is a great pleasure to hear Karen sing. In a world that is filled with so many unpleasant distractions
she was a bright light.

Karen and Richard was/are national treasures!

Man I've had one too many moments like that myself -sigh- this song speaks to my heart.

Your voice and beautiful smile are a constant reminder that you are
still here. We all miss you Karen Carpenter! That so lovely voice
and smile that sinks deeply into our souls! Rest in Peace my sweetie
Karen Carpenter! We all love you!

she truly had a magnificent voice...

This song takes me back to 70-71 blows me away still !!!

People don't realize she had NO formal vocal training. She just wanted
to be the drummer, in the background...and turned out to have one of
the best voices of the ages...

She is really great

voice from somewhere out here

KAREN CARPENTER REPRESENTS THE 70s MUSIC at its Classic BEST

great song and great artists, underated for sure.

compare this to the crap of today,what a shame

one of my all-time favourites.. sooo tender-loving and sweet! :)

super!!!

Best voice I will ever hear in my lifetime.

IT sure felt like the end of the world when we had to say goodbye to Karen Carpenter.

A more honeyed, mellow voice you'll never find.

Her music will live on forever.

What a voice

The best. Her voice was the BEST

She is Ethiopia!

INCREDIBLE, SWEET VOICE !

When Karen died I was depressed for weeks

Surely one of the greatest singing voices ever.

My beautiful Karen, Star on the stars

Ive said it before and Ill say it again...THE BEST FEMALE VOICE IN HISTORY
...and I love this song.......

The greatest voice in the history of pop music and I have heard them all

End of the World ! Schöner geht es nicht mehr!

Her voice is butter on a warm croissant.

One of the most beautiful voices ever. RIP, Karen. Wish you were still with us.

Happy Birthday KAREN. I will love n miss u forever . U r the best singer
ever. Such a voice

and she had the best vocals of all femals luv u K R.I.P.

This Gal's voice is endless.A hundred years from now it will still be moving
in the extreme. I simply cannot think of another artist that even comes close. We
will always love you Karen.

And a fantastic drum player!

Karen's music is not just for the? ears, it also reaches the bottom of my heart. Perfect
woman voice! I love you KAREN!

I remember in 1971 when Karen was described as an angel on stage. She stunned everyone
involved in music because she could actually sing and hold a note beautifully.

Don't they know it's the end of the world? Itt ended when you left us, Karen.

Karen had vocal beauty of the rarest kind.....a tonal quality that has not been matched
by anyone....nor will ever be matched.....

Beautiful Karen with the sweetest smoothest voice ever.

I know its been 30 years since her passing but her voice will always be the best voice out there

Karen will always be my favorite singer. Just something about that voice that gets to me like no other.

This is so classic and her voice is so amazing.
So hard to find someone else's voice in the present day to campare.

Simply the finest female voice of all time. Beautiful, talented and gone too soon. Karen, we
all miss you. RIP darling.

she is really gorgous besides being one of the greatest female singers of all time

She still has the most angelic voice ever.

Don't know if its true but I read KC recorded this song in one take. Pure sad soul from the
depths of her heart, the first time. wow No other singer is even close....

Very possibly the GREATEST female voice ever recorded......i have not heard anyone in 35 plus
years that even comes close...NO-ONE

Julie Andrews for beauty... Aretha Franklin for Soul ..... Barbra Streisand for technique... Karen for all that

When I listen to Karen, I think to myself: oh, my godness! No more voices like this nowadays!

This song was sang and written before I was even born (I'm 22) but
this woman has an unbelievably beautiful voice. I've never heard
anything like this before.

Karen is a one-off, a true legend. I don't believe that there is one
woman in the music world this century who can sing as good as her,
because as far as I'm concerned NO ONE CAN.

She smiles so very sweet !

Karen's voice was so beautiful it hurts to know she is gone. She
touched my soul. I miss her.

Wow! What a voice!!!! Just love her.

it was a great loss when the angles call her but god needed an angle with voice WE MISS U KAREN

One of the world's most melodic voices ever!!

Another wonderful tune by a collaboration that we will shall never see again. These two showed
the world what REAL music was. Heaven has some great music, that's for sure!

karen..is world famous..she touches latinos,blacks,asians,aliens,heaven above and best of all love
is the universal language people understand and response. God bless u karen..ur voice heals us
and deeply touch us all

karen carpenter,boy what a voice, what a loss!

She was famous for her folk songs in the period of pop - her songs made tons of people smile and
be happy. Its sad that she died before I was born... I miss her.

Beauty, Elegance, Melodious Voice, Karen Carpenter had it all.

the sweetest voice on earth&other wise

1 of the greatest
......

Guys, besides Karen's excellent voice, the musical arrangement is fantastic.They don't do them
like this any more!!

As usual, Karen is as beautiful and elegant as ever, her singing, as well as her appearance.

this song rules her voice is like an angel...

She sings like an angel to bad she had a disease and it killed her....STUPID DISEASE!!!

If Karen was still alive today, I am sure and convinced that she would still be singing - we lost a great, kind and charming singer back in 1983, god bless her.

Yes, I would of visited their concerts in a heartbeat

There will never be another duo like these two. Perfect harmonies, great melodies, great
production - pure American pop at it's absolute best.

She has one of histories most stunning and distinctive voices.

It is amazing to see how many people in China can hardly speak English but know all the words to
this song. That speaks to its international transcendental value.

beautiful song and Karen had the best voice of the world.....

so beautiful voice ,I like it very much

Awweh..
So beautiful voice :)

has there ever been a more beautiful voice in the world. such a haunting vocalist, just amazing.

Dear Karen, you are the most beautiful voice on the Earth! you did not die! You will live as long
as we love you with our hearts..you always craving for someone to love you! Mr. Right was not
there. But, you are in Heaven now and in peace! Thanks to God who created you and gave us
the pleasure to listen to you!

not just the best American but the best female the world over, you can uderstand everyword
she sang, i love heavy metal/rock music but for me the Carpenters are a must listen duo,
respect to Karen and Richard.

No one can beat her, the best American female signer in the history.

perfect voice, beautifull woman wow the carpenters are the best their music is forever

One of the world's most melodic voices ever!!

Karen's singing is fantastic. No words to express it's sweetness. She will be remembered for
a long time to come.

whAT A WONDERFUL VOICE!!!! EXCELLENT...

Karen is my favorite female vocalist of all time. I've never heard her sing this. It does bring you
to tears. She's been gone from us for 25 years this year; God Bless her beautiful soul.

The most flawless voice ever created. God Bless Karen......

Literally, an angel.

There is nobody who will come close to this voice! EVER!

by far the best female vocalist I have ever heard!! her voice is as smooth as silk!

Her legacy will never be forgotten.

She made me so happy when we were both young. Karen will always be young.
Perfection like Karen's voice is a once in a lifetime thing, I suppose we must be
thankful for recordings like this.

Beautiful girl with an equally beautiful voice!

The All American Voice. Don't insult me by comparing anyone to Karen Carpenter.
If NASA should send a piece of music to another galaxy, this would be a good
choice.

speachless!

Karen wasn't the prettiest singer of her time, but she was blessed with the purest
and sexiest voice. I still put her at the top of my female singers list, even after
all these years.

Karen's voice still haunts her fans and listeners like me after all these years. What
a great singer!

A W E S O M E !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

karen's voice is very beautiful and so good she is my idol

Some of the best melodies, vocals, and songwriting you will find anywhere!

Karen Carpenter ..absolutely masterful singing, phrasing, what control,what
command of the vocalization of melody. She will go down as one of the best
female vocalist ...EVER!

this is a true star a great singer whois loved by millions.her songs are great
and her voice is divine.

NObody can beat Karens voice!

You won't hear another voice like Karen.
Like a Stradivarius violin, no one knows how to make them anymore. She is one of a kind.

I have yet to hear such a beautiful voice since Karen... What a pure and beautiful sound!

Her voice radiates intelligence, wisdom, and sensitivity.

In my opinion, she has the most beautiful and soothing voice of any female singer past
or present. I can just fall in love with her singing, makes you feel so calm and relaxed.
We love and miss you Karen, you left us so early. May God keep you in his care.

Karen's voice is so incredibly beautiful.
This is my favorite song.

CLASSIC,,,,,FOREVER MUSIC

For all the flaws in the acoustics, etc., the undeniable perfection of her voice shines through.

Such a voice can only come from heaven. It carries such rich harmonies, enveloping the
soul, washing it clean of worldly thoughts then leaving it pristine in a sparking mist of sublimity.

The best pure and natural female voice ever ! .... I love you Karen, .....always

one word.. tears

she was a clasic ,i could listen to her 24/7

Just true bliss! Britney,Amy,Christina,Beyonce, "Dream on"

Her voice was described as liquid velvet and I agree, no one comes close.

Karen, to recap what everyone is saying, you have such a beautiful voice, of such quality
that we will probably never hear again. Thank you ( and Richard ) for the BEAUTIFUL Music !

SHE WAS A GODDESS !!!! the most heavenly voice on the planet. I have always loved
this song. You could never get tired of hearing it. Her voice is stunning. My eyes are tearing
up just writing this. Wihtout a doubt, the best pure singer in history. No studio tampering
etc. just pure talent !!!

Karen, I don't know of anyone who sings like you today. My gosh, you sang like an angel. Peace...

i hope we see another singer like karen in our lives-but i doubt it

Having grown up in Torrance Ca close to Downey where they lived, I was fortunate to see
them twice in concert in 71 and 1972, at 17 years old I was in heaven.. love them and always
will .....

absolutely beautiful,it brings tears to my eyes!

The truth is........ there are no words that can describe how beautiful karen's voice really is.

such a rich and suductive voice, there really hasn't been any one like her since,,,

i hope God would give us soon a gift like her........We miss a voice like hers

Karen is just so amazing! This is a live performance but her voice is still as wonderful as
before! Karen was just a wonderful person! We miss you sorely Karen. R.I.P.
Beautiful performance*

oh my gosh!!I love it! I love her voice, I love the song and I love her simply!! One of the world's
finest and greatest singer. She's simply irresistible. Beautiful, classic and very charming..We
miss you a lot Karen!!!!
and so we love you very deeply,.
RIP..

Best Female Vocalist EVER!!!!!

I grew up with her - she was awesome! Glad I grew up with such a great singer!

She was and still is one of the best singers ever. She captured everthing. I was
brought up with the carpenters and theve riched my life and many others. i wasnt
around when they where here, but no one has even came close mataching there
music abilties in the music industry. Rip Karen

No female singer has a voice like Karen's, velvety is a good adjective to describe it.
Rest in peace Karen, your songs will live on forever...

Best female vocalist of all time. I cant think of anyone, that is such a real pleasure
to hear.

dear God ...they were so good

What a voice!!!! Karen Carpenter's singing was always perfect, but this short portion
of a medley was perfect for her voice.

wonderful ..................

Karen may be gone, but her songs are alive in our hearts forever.

her voice is magical...her music enchanting... theres never been anything like
her before or since!!! Her voice proves to me there is a God in heavan

i'm 30..and listening to this music makes me not want to listen to anymore modern music

the one and only Karen carpenter....brilliant

oh ,i love her voice ! its like ...sunshine

Prehaps "the"most perfect voice of all female contemporary singers.
Effortless key and tonal change,emotive structured notes,delivered with an
ease only the truly gifted can deliver.
A sensational singer and a great loss.
On a personal level,her voice is like a log fire and a warm brandy on a dark
winters evening...........perfect.

i cant say it like you did friend.a professor at ohio state said her voice
was literally angelic almost not human...God bless her...

Karen : I wanna go to heaven to see you for eternity .

May we never forget such a beautiful person who sounded like an angel, and
her talented brother. Those were the best times ever!!!

wow... her voice is like a diamond.... so sparkly and beautiful.....

I love her, she doesn´t belong to this world, she belongs to the universe. She
is a presente from God to the universe. We love her.

beautiful lady, AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL voice............ LEGEND FOREVER XXX

There will never be another voice quite a beautiful and distinct as Karen Carpenter's.

I mean really, who has a better voice?

Great point... there are other female voices I love, but better?

One of the great pop voices - if not the greatest.
What I particularly love is the absence of vocal gymnastics and fllourishes - she just
sang the melody as it was and put her heart and soul into it. She draws you in and
makes you concentrate on the song and the lyrics, which I think is one of the signs
of a great performer.

The Definition of Perfection!!

There are no words to describe her voice...
If God is a woman She has Caren Carpenters voice...

Superstar. Who would have the guts to cover this song today? NOBODY.

Thumbs up if you agree that this voice is: ABSOLUTELY F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!

it's too bad she never saw how beautiful she really was.

A Vocal masterpiece, from an angel who lived among us, for all too short a time. Karen
was beautiful, kind , generous, & Blessed with an angel's voice that her brother
arranged & guided with a master's precision. Rich & Karen , we thank-you & miss you
2 more as time goes by.

That voice.. It draws me to listen to this music, and I don't even like 70s love songs. I grew
up on 80s and 90s metal, but Karen would rule the school if she was still around today..
RIP Karen

I'll take Karen over any Mariah,Gaga,Rihanna,Jennifer,C­hristina and the likes !

a sweet song sung by the sweetest voice of all.

Karen Carpenter: the very voice of the Seraphim of the Living God of Heaven; the perfect
mold from which all imperfect voices fail to fashion themselves.

Her voice comes from somewhere else, it is very affecting; speaks to the soul.

Beautiful song, beautiful performance from the late great Karen Carpenter

Karen Carpenter will always be the purest voice in rock-she may not have had the vocal
power of The Wilson Sisters or Pat Benatar-her range cannot be equalled.

Don't they know it's the end of the world? Itt ended when you left us, Karen.

golden voice fantastic!!!

So far there´s never been a voice with such power and at the same time beautiful pitch.
Karen´s ability for wide range harmonics and octaves is without match until these days.

If I close my eyes, I would swear I can hear a sort of rueful smile in Karen's voice.
Exquisite. This lady really felt and understood the songs she sang.

There`s no doubt, Karen had one of the most beautiful voices in human history. Sometimes
I think she was a fallen angel from the heaven choir...

Karen, still The Voice

Fantastic,smooth and full of nostalgia. God this woman is missed.

I would love to see Lady Ga Ga do a song like this, this would be too normal for her! Karen
still rules, and always will! Karen's music will live on in the hearts of the romantics and
gentle souls who appreciate beautiful music, LIKE ME! :) WE ALL MISS YOU SO MUCH
KAREN :(

listen carefully.. this is how an Angel sounds like when they sing

Although I was a rock and roller back then (and still am), Karen's voice was a very important
voice to me as I was growing up; hit after hit, and her voice was so gorgeous..

Karen was like a God angel here on earth, its a shame that he decided to guide her to
the skies so soon

The most perfect female voice period.

the best= Karen Anne Carpenter

eram fantasticos

Karen had a wonderful voice,simple as that.

The "hardrock" noise from back then, and today, will be gone and forgotten, while
the music of the Carpenters will be around forever----and---NEVER AGAIN will we
see its equal !!!!

Karen was a gift of God, and I could not suffer her loss. RIP

one of the most beautiful voices in the world ever!!!!

Karen, your lovely tender voice whispers to me in my lonely days.

Karen Carpenter had a fabulous American voice that couldn't be matched and
will truly be missed. She left us much too early.

Karen's death was an incalculable loss to the world. But Earth's loss is Heaven's
gain. She was an angel who went home.

What a beautiful soul she was. Her voice is just heaven.

Karen Carpenter! What a contralto voice! What a beutiful voice! God bless u
wherever u are! A kiss from Argentina!

Karen YOU'RE the nearest thing to Heaven that we've seen. and heard.

!Youre Great voice put you on top of the world Karen!, were you'll always
remain! r.i.p.................. ..

RIP kAREN.YOU ARE MISSED. X

My mom sang this song to me when I was little. It meant a ton then. My daughter
was born 4 weeks ago and it means even more now.

If you want to be a music producer, and make hits that hundreds of millions of
people will buy and love, study this video for a week, and "Only Yesterday," and
you'll take a long step toward success.

She could really sing, nice gentle voice, and you could understand EVERY WORD,
and that's an art I thought was lost to the world.

Karen is the sweetest thing the world could loose.. It still brings me to tears when
listening.. because she's gone forever and ever...

They were loved very much by Japanese people.

She was such a nice person and had a beautiful, moving voice. This song
brings back great memories from my childhood. Wish she was still with us. :(

beautiful song,beautiful voice,beautiful face,beautiful smile

Literally gives me the goosebumps.

A gr8 song with a soul in it ,An all time favorite ,very melodius

i totally agree...the carpenters songs are way more real that some of the hip hop
techno shit out there today. She had the most perfect voice seriously and put so
much feeling into all their songs.

Wow. I'd forgotten how great she sounded. We lost a great one.

I am from Pakistan and I am listening this song for the first time.This is one of
the most beautiful songs i ever listened.

fantastic singer, fantastic music, fantastic words.

Karen's voice was perfection on earth, something true, a joy to behold.
She died too young and the world has lost a divine talent.....

she has an angel's voice

Her voice is like pure honey. The thing that attracts me the most though is the way
one can practically 'hear' her eyes twinkling when she sings. To me, the thing that
other singers can never hope to imitate is the slight tinge of mischief that she
always has in her rich voice- regardless of the nature of the song. This, i feel, gives
her voice and songs a whole new depth and uniqueness.

No wonder a lot of critics think that Karen Carpenter's voice is the best ever - I
realize now how pure her voice is. A voice of great integrity and purity, sometimes
imitated, never surpassed.

She's amazing!! she will always be RIP

love it amazing perfect absolutely positevely great voice

Karen was a perfect angel, and one of the greatest voices I've heard.

Love Karen's voice . Beautiful and SWEET

This is one of my all time favorites. The melody is one of the most beautiful I have
heard and the voice singing was perfectly suited to sing it. May Karen rest in peace
God rest her soul...we lost her so young.

I love the sugarcubes version but Karen`s voice is so beautiful it is just out of this world

This is the one I fell in love with in high school. Nobody could sing like Karen Carpenter.

To me this woman and Judith Durham was and are the Very,Very best of my life time....

Karen Carpenter was simply divine.

I'm hard pressed to find a more beautiful voice...the Carpenters are my guilty pleasure

Just amazing... i wish everything today was so pure and delightful as this! God bless
her... the world would be such a better place with her in it. x

God has her as his lead female vocalist up there...

I forgot how perfect her voice was. She could sing anything.

Incredibly crystal clear voice, perfect pitch.

She is just so so smooth. Unlike many other artists, I can listen to her songs over
and over; never grow tired of them!

There are many great singers and many great voices, but KC's voice is perhaps the
most purely beautiful of them all. It's just a perfect thing.

Oh my God! Karen Carpenter sang it beautifully. I always loved all of her songs. There
will never be another singer that will have her stunning voice.

You guys win. I did not even know that the late genius karen recorded this. You all said it.

The only singer in the world who's lower register makes me feel as though I'm swimming
in a pool of velvety chocolate and an upper register that makes my spine tingle..
masterclass of vocal perfection!

You've taken the words right out of my mouth. A voice from heaven came and went. How
much we miss her, but fortunately we still have her through her music.

Karen's sound cannot be imitated; she sings simply from her heart and soul. Her voice
resonates effortlessly, pleading and admittingly playing with those deeply embedded
human emotions. Ineffable, timeless, haunting melodies.

"everlasting"

Karen Carpenter singing For All We Know;
Singers who try to cover this song is a waste of time. It`s like trying to re-paint
the Mona Lisa. It can never be copied.

Wasnt she just amazingly brillant.

All you say is correct, but u leave out the most important part. Ms. Clark knew
Karen should have sung it, and went on to pay K the tribute that captures her
greatness: "Singing isn'tjust getting out the notes, it's something more. Karen
had something there none of us had. She could go to places no one else could
find."

My! What A Great singer she is!

I still today say she's the greatest female singer of all time.
No one comes close.

She's TEACHING the angels!

This woman had one of the most haunting, soulful voices that was and still is
incredible to here. Rest IN PEACE KAREN!

What a great voice! She'd probably singing along with the angels right now...

Die schönste Stimme, die wir je hatten,

Greatest female singer EVER.

Karen Carpenter, the MOST BEAUTIFUL singing voice I've ever heard!!! If ever there
were an example of an Angelic singing voice this would be it!!!

oh man her voice is so pure

She had the most incredible voice. What a loss to the music world when she
died. Michele Maddix

Unique, crystal clean voice. I feel so sad that she'e gone.

Ho dear!
What a voice!!
Crystal clear!!!
beautiful instrument ever=)

I'm 23 and I've been a huge fan of the Carpenters since I was 16 after hearing
this song for the first time. This just shows how their music has touched a
younger generation

No one will ever compare to KC...Voice of an angel she is.

A voice like an angel.......

I'm a rock lover, U2, Led Zeppelin, The Who etc. but Karen Carpenter is the greatest
vocalist I've ever heard. Her voice is divine and the emotion and sadness that
comes through is genuine. There's nobody like her.?

And she didn't think she could sing!!! Her voice is the most beautiful ever!?

It's so hard to comprehend that someone with such an amazing voice never
felt that she was good enough. Karen, dear, you were so completely good
enough. You were exquisite.

Makes todays slew of female singers look like crap.?

The best female singer ever, I could listen to her all day

Karen's alto voice was absolutely flawless. Her breath control, caramel
smooth tone, intonation and the sheer feminine whisper to her voice - aswell
as the trademark sadness that could be heard in her voice, made her both
in a sense unique and absolutely breathtaking. Her voice was a knockout!

Karen Carpenter the planet's best female voaclist of all time . . . bar none
what a singer superb.

Karen,you were the best and you are still the best.?

beautiful just beautiful still a shining star karen?

Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce, Miley, Nicki and all the rest of you, take note. This
is what a genuinely good singer is - one whose music, voice and sheer talent
were more than enough to hold an audience without the semi-nudity and
simulated sex acts you have to resort to to keep your fans interested.?

Karen was filled with class, elegance and loveliness....?

the best Singer e ver.all over the world?

Jesus Christ her voice is just out of this world. I'm sorry to be so melodramatic
but "Christian Cuevas" brought me here and totally forgot that this song is by
the "Carpenters". No one will ever sound like "Karen Carpenter" I mean no one.?

No can touch Karen's Art today. Harmony at it's best!?

Possibly the planet Earth's best contiribution to popular music EVER! R.I.P
Karen we will love you always.?

Beyonce is not even good enough to be Karen's back up vocal?

So this is what an angel sounds like.

And Karen didn't need to show body parts. Her voice was the BEST.?

OMG, When I listen to her I only cry. She is priceless and cannot be replaced.?

Golden, Pure Class can't find it today?

I agree with everything you aid. 30 years on I have still not found anyone
who comes even close to the sound of Karen and the Carpenters. Richard
was a major part of the Carpenters which should never be forgotten but
Karen was so beautiful and such a fantastic talent whose talent was lost
far too early. Regards David England.?

Karen Carpenter's voice just simply blows me away !!!!!!?

Bloody AWESOME vocalist & great song?

This is a song, this is a singer. Nowadays music is 99% trash.?

Just realised. What other female singer could end on a low note and still
make you shiver inside.?

There are a handful of female singers that I've come across in my entire
lifetime whose voices have that special "something" that can move my
heart. But Karen's voice is the only one that has melted my heart away
and touched my soul.

Music was my first love and Karen is my last....What a Voice!?

What a voice. She is singing with the angels..?

Karen´s voice is perfect as god's angel is singing. First time I ever heard
this song I was a teenie 1971. It ist wonderful to remember to this time.?

God gave us such a lovely gift when he gave Karen Carpenter that voice...?

If all angels' voices were like Karen's, we wouldn't be able to discern the special ones.

Karen never got the chance to see in herself what we saw in her! Listening to
her wasn't just hearing someone sing,it was an experience that she took
you on.She brought you along on the beautiful ride that was her music and voice.

The most remarkable voice in pop music ever. Her potential was without limitation.
What a voice. What a loss. Really puts a heavy melancholy on all of her music,
making it even more poignant.?

I saw an interview she once gave where she said she considers herself
a musician first, and a singer second. There are 7 billion people who will
respectfully disagree with you Karen...RIP?

Karen Carpenter has the most beautiful voice my ears have ever heard.?

Heaven is that moment, when I listen her to her voice?

greatest female voice i have ever heard and will ever hear... NO ONE comes
close to such beauty, richness, purity of voice.. no one told and sang the "story
of the song" better.. what made her so utterly otherworldly great besides these
qualities (as well as her utter perfect enuncation and diction of every word for
every song she ever sang) is that she sang TO YOU! NOT AT YOU! also, i
can't think of any female voice who could sing better what she was singing
about! what i mean is when it was a joyous upbeat song, she sang that to
perfection and you felt her joy and you felt joy.. when it was a sad song, she
sang that to perfection and you felt sadness and her sadness,,, any
spectrum of human emotion and whatever song was about that emotion,
NO ONE could convey it better then Karen Carpenter! s it wasn't just
THAT VOICE but everything else as well...?

KAREN....THE VOICE DREAMS ARE MADE OF!?

karen is gone now but her voice and beauty will live on forever, her sound is
unique and never to be copied, no other singer has a voice that comes remotely
close to karens, R I P special angel, love you, xxx.?

I hope when I die and go the pearly gates of heaven I'm greeted by that angel Karen?

thank God her music is preserved forever?

WOW NOT a voice within a million miles of this in THIS DAY AND AGE.?

Some singers may of had more vocal range than Karen think (Judy, Barbra,
Whitney and most recently Adele). Obviously all tremendous talents in their
own right but for me nobody can touch that deep tone, texture, clarity and
purity of Karen's voice. When she sings It's like she's reaching into my soul
and keeping it real. I can connect with her emotionally like no other female
vocalist I've ever heard in my lifetime, and although she was taken away from
us way too soon the Carpenters incredible musical legacy will live on forever.?

always the best. for ever and ever?

If ever a time God gave us a glimpse through sound of Heaven, this has got
to be it! Beautifully angelic, heavenly voice. I love you, Karen.?

Simply magical... Pure GOLD!?

By far the best female vocalist ever. This is what Heaven sounds like.?

If she wasn't the best female vocalist of the twentieth century, I'll eat YOUR hat.
Miraculous, mellifluous, one of a kind Karen Carpenter. God loves you. Karen,
and so do I.;?

Immortal voice. She has fans that are not even born yet.?

1 in a 1,000,000.. You know nobody comes close to that unique voice..?

What an angel. Nobody will ever capture the most beautiful Karen Carpenter. I will
always love her!?

black guy 50 years old grew up in the dirty Bronx this played on the radio kinda
force fed me ...but man did I like it. SHE CANNOT SING A BAD SONG

Fact: KAREN CARPENTER WAS THE GREATEST FEMALE SINGER TO
EVER SiNG ANY SONG. NO ONE WILL EVER BE EXACTLY LIKE HER,
PERIOD!!!!!?

She has a special voice that will live for ever.?

This Woman's Skill can't Actually Be Measured. She is the Control and Standard,
by what/which all {ALL} Scale is Judged. Strange. Almost Unearthly ! That,
and She Grabs Ya !?

by far the most beautiful voice I still have ever heard.?

Her voice had a sadness to it like I've never heard before. I was damned lucky
to be alive to hear her voice. Beautiful as anything in my life.?

Such a smooth, feminine, melodic voice. Incomparable.?

agreed! the most beautiful, rich, intimate, moving voice i have ever heard.. her voice
is and always will be romance and love, love both looked for, found and lost.... and
it wasn't just the sound of her voice, but how she used it.. her phrasing and emoting,
her absolute perfect diction and enunciation for every syllable for every word for every
song she ever sang (that in itself makes her stand out from nearly everyone!), how
she told and acted out the story of the song.. THEE epitome of the singer who sang
TO the listener NOT AT the listener!...?

There are no WORDS to express the BEAUTIFUL voice of hers.... So UNIQUE?

Her body might have been at her worst, but her voice is at its most beautiful. Better
than 99.999% of other vocalists. I loved this write up! I had heard the phrase before
but never knew its exact meaning. Thank you.?

Oh, my......this is how TRUE MUSIC DEFINES ! it just replenishes your freshness
unnoticed when you listen especially by a divine-quality voice as Karen !?

Today is one more day in my life to remember that KC is simply unforgettable...?

Seeing all those family album photos, I just can't believe how cute she is ::) I would
had marry her in a heartbeat:))?

There are no words to describe the beautiful emotions that this song envokes.I
could start with timeless classic, I could go on all day. I really can't think of one
word to describe this song and her version timeless classical beauty is the
closet thing I can think of. I can listen to this over and never become tired of this
true piece of musical art. Karen, if you somehow can see this when I get to heaven,
I want to go to one of your concerts and watch it with our Maker!!!! until then, R.I.P.!!

Still missing you Karen. There will never be another one like you. Happy Birthday!
You are dearly and deeply missed. - Robs

Dear Karen, you are the most beautiful voice on the Earth! you did not die! You will
live as long as we love you with our hearts..you always craving for someone to love
you! Mr. Right was not there. But, you are in Heaven now and in peace! Thanks to
God who created you and gave us the pleasure to listen to you!

Karen is the best I ever heard.
God bless you Karen!

God's singing angel

Karen had a most dynamic voice ever heard! She really put her heart and
soul into all of her songs.

God Bless you Karen, such a beautiful voice I can't help shedding tears when
I hear some of your vocals. I loved your voice as a child during the 70's and
now as a 40 something I'm weeping during this post.

Karen had it all. a beautiful woman inside and out, a phenominal voice and the soul
of an angel.

This just makes my day everytime I hear it.Karen is still alive as long as
that beautiful,irepressible voice is available for us to hear.

What a great artist. She will live forever in my memory.

WOW what a find I had no idea karen and ella sang together. They are my favourite
female singers of all time, especially karen I grew up listening to her music brings
back nice memories Hope they are both singing together again in heaven

You would assume that these two amazing voices coming together would only result
in a competition rather than a duet...but these two women really show what real
classy talent is...not anything like the 'divas' of today.

They accomplished the greatest mission of their lives, which was going immortal
thru pure music genius. I could never think Karen Carpenter could match so much
The First Lady Of Jazz in a duet. With such voices, Heaven is for sure a heavenly
place to live.

She has a beautiful voice not exactly powerful like mariah's and whitney's. But very
soft and feminin that really reaches to the bottom of my soul. Beautiful.

She's the best singer in the world.

BEST VOICE EVER....of ANYONE !

My! What A Great singer she is!

She was one of the best voices all over the history of music.Carpenters a group
of sixties and seventies take part of an unforgetable time.

Karen's voice is simply golden!

It is incredible .... her breathing is amazing ... seamless.

Karen's vocals are excellent as usual, but the arrangement is
incredible. Richard never seems to get the credit.

I think she has got a great voice,the best female vocalist ever.One of the
great stars shining in heaven.

my mum loves them and so do i!!! she has the most perfect voice!

great song and great memories I love karen she sing's like an
angel (and now she is)

What a shame that she died so young =(. She had a really good voice, and
it feels like her voice could go deep inside your body instead of just your ears.

her voice was phenominal.

This song was written by Paul Williams, another terribly-underrated writer of
the 20th century. But Karen Carpenter's piercing voice, like in so many other
songs, made it matter. She was fantastic.

what a tragedy karen wasted away, she could sing the phone book and it
would sound good

I am a rocker by heart. I have too give props to just an amazing, pure voice.

by the way, this was BEFORE they had any reverb and voice distortion, this
is exactly how rich and complex her voice was.

I wish she was still here so she could hear how much we all love and miss her.

Excellent Song. Excellent Content. Excellent Singer.

Karen Carpenter had one of the most beautiful voices in popular music. This
is an especially beautiful and poignant song. And it has a powerful message
for everyone: if you find true love, then hang on to it! Remember, "freedom
only helps you say goodbye" and "nothing comes for free".

it's been a while since i listen to an oldie but goodie song and karen
carpenter's on top of that list ..with the current good singers we have now, no
one can have that beautiful soothing natural voice of karen .. she is truly the
one and only ... a legend that lives on and on ...

Amazing. This live version has beautiful nuances not found in her extraordinary
recording. Greatness in a voice: mellow, velvet, a jewel among jewels, befitting
descriptions all; soothing, gorgeously moving on the most primal level, like a
mother's reassuring hand at the cradle, like the epitome of the presence of the
most beautiful woman in the world.

its nice to read people saying how karen sings beautifully and how amazing her
voice is.She's not like todays singers....they trick their vocals..so unnatural

No singer ever had a more beautiful voice at such a young age as her, which
lasted till the very end...Karen just was an Angel, to hear her, to see her...in
every single way.

I can't believe how human being can make such beautiful songs, Karen Carpenter
will be one of those human beings who make those great things.

there will never be another Karen Carpenter that's for sure.....................

First came the sun,then came plants and flowers,and then,the voice of Karen Carpenter....

She sounded terrific whether live on stage or in a recording studio,this performance
is no exception, one of the best sounding voices ever, a unique talented person
indeed. Wish she were still here making beautiful music again.

KAREN CARPENTER
THE MOST FABULOUS VOICE THAT EVER APPEAR ON THIS EARTH

The most beautiful voice! god keep her close and rest in peace karen

What a voice,so mellow !

awsome...cant say anything else...

There are no words to discribe how incredibly talented Karen was. Pure magic when
you look at her and her brother at work. Tragic the way it had to end. I wil stay a fan
for life.

her voice is unique, soft and rude at the same time. has not heard a voice like this again.

it's just the sound of karens voice that makes her the best of all time,and that comes
once in a lifetime,and her brother richard brought out the best in her god blessed them both.

One of the most purest sweetest voices of all time, a natural, great vocal range, unlimited
talent, so sad she was taken away at such a young age. Karen, you were and still are
the best!

nobody past or present sounds as good as karen carpenter

I'm A 47 Year Old Male,And Stil Choke Up A Little When I Hear Her Voice.

I am metal through and through..but this one is really a good song..Karen's voice is like
that of an Angel..R.I.P.

poignant
a singer has NEVER sung a song better

I completely agree!!! nobody sings like her

I loved Karen's voice the ffirst time I heard her sing. With time I only grow to love it more.

Karen Carpenter was simply divine.

If I met a girl who looks as pretty as Karen does in this video, I wouldn't look at any other women.

I'm hard pressed to find a more beautiful voice...

Simply the BEST - the voice, the song and the intrepretation.

Queen Karen....what a voice!

Voice of an Angel and up there singing with them now ive read all the comments and if theres
one thing everyone agrees on its Karens voice AWESOME you didnt die in vain Karen no one
will ever forget you

this is classic carpenters - we won't see classic music like this again - they were unique - missed
so much xxxxxxxxx

Wasn't She and isn't She still so Awesome!

absolutely beautiful,it brings tears to my eyes!

A lifetime favorite indeed! When you listen to them (carpenters)
once, you can't resist not to
listen again..swear!

I can say that it's most tenderly voice that I ever heard.

I have never been moved by any other artist this way.

Wow, I will never get tired of hearing Karen Carpenter sing. I just
don't know anyone who is
comparable to her. no way.

I'VE FOUND THE BEST

I still misses her especially her angelic voice..she will be the
first and last person to have this
voice!!! rip my idol

Karen and this song got helped get me through a year in the
Aleutian Islands. Her voice was the
first one I heard in the morning and the last one before sleeping.
Thank you Karen and I'll hear
you in Heaven.

Karen had a wonderful voice,simple as that.

A voice like Karen's doesn't happen often, I'm just happy I was
around to hear her perform. I caught
a lot of guff from my hardrocking pals at the time, liking such
squares, but they were the best I ever
heard.

Geez Karens voice IS 1 in amillion

I swear to God that everytime I hear Karen's voice it's as if I'm
listening to an angel sing...what a voice, what a song!
This is the voice... the voice of a true singer... It's a shame that
Miss Karen Carpenter left us... The whole world is grieving at the
loss of this amazing singer... Rest in Peace Miss Karen Carpenter...

I wish I could still hear this angelic voice singing today, but at
least we still have her voice recorded....her voice is so comforting...

God-- that low Eb Karen hits at the start is unreal! I can't think of
any female that could pull that off... unbelievable talent.

I don't believe in angels or in God but Karen's voice does sound
divine.

karen was an angel jus passin thru god jus sent her for a while
an took her back

There will never be another voice quite a beautiful and distinct
as Karen Carpenter's.

the voice of an angel. so talented with no effort

Quite possibly the finest alto voice in music ever. You could hear
the pain and unhappiness of her life in every syllable of her
singing, yet she manages to overlay all of that with a satin
smooth delivery that when combined makes for a performance
so intimately striking that you can't help but feel that you know her.
Truly one of a kind. RIP Karen.

No matter how many times I hear her voice - goosebumps

Superstar....that´s was Karen was. Lucky those of us who have lived
in her time. Indeed she IS an Angel....who stayed among us for 32 years.
She´s in my heart forever.

Karen looked so good in this promo video. I will always contend that
she is one of the 3 top voices in rock/pop history. Beautiful...

a voice from heaven nobody will have a voice like that

karen sings so beautiful and wrth such little effort like the old saying
smooth as butter her voice is uncomparable

Here in Brazil we love Karen (RIP) and Richard Carpenter. Her voice
are so unique, so beautifull and
female.

It brings tears to my eyes. To think that this woman, with the
voice of an angel, was so sad in her
personal life. They call them stars. They're just human beings with
feelings who happen to sing. Rest
in Peace, Karen....we miss you.

I think this is one of her best songs. If her music comes on the
radio when my brother is around, he
demands that we be quiet while Karen Carpenter is singing. I don't
argue because I agree with him
completely. Her voice is beautiful.

I miss you Karen,.
your voice is genuine!!
really!!

I was thirteen when I heard it first. And until today, i never
forget. Its one of the best LOVE SONGS
ever. So warm, and soft. And Karen sing like no one ever. Her voice
is perfect and blessed---forever.

Fantastic voice! Fantastic song! Really goes deep inside your
heart! Thank you Karen! Thank you Ric!

great song, one of the greatist singers of all time and a great
group,

IMO,the GREATEST female singing voice ever, bar none. Beautiful to
look at as well. Rest in peace.
With God providing the music, I bet the folks in heaven are hearing
some incredible songs with
Karen singing!

I cry when I hear this song. May I meet Karen in heaven.

This is another incredible Carpenters' song, perfect in every way. There is nothing now that comes
close to this quality.

gosh,,,
shes too much...

hey i cannot help it i kno i'm a strong bloke who works hard all me
life but every time i hear her
voice she brings a tear to my eye, beautiful , the greatest female singer of all time and no-one
can come next to her for style and quality of voice, lv ya karen and always will xx

Karen's voice has that special tone and timbre that is one in a million. It is so pleasing to the ear,
so crystal clear and so velvety smooth. What a voice!

if she still livedshe woul'd be bigger then Barbra Striesand

karen had such an angelic, pure voice. love it!

I wonder how they would have done in the 80's and 90's had they still been around?
The best alto voice ever

the best voice EVER...regardless of any decade in human existence......

No real music nomore. Just stupid rappin and screaming.The good days are gone.

RIP Karen Carpenter...the best voice ever in the 70's

"The Greatest alto voice"...Rolling Stone Magazine

Damn I wish I was born in this era, wtf happened to music?

Just an incredible, beautiful voice, I wish Karen was still with us, so she and Richard could
sing and produce their music.

I agree. One of the most beautiful voice ever.

You are obviously clueless or deaf if you don't think that her voice is great. Compare it to the
crap out there today and you have your answer, and no - I'm not old, I just respect talent
when I hear it.

The sublime irony of her singing about a superstar when she was one still astounds me.

I love this song. Karen Carpenters voice is genuine and is missed by many!

*sniff*.....got sumthin my eye.

Simply marvellous ! She's irreplaceable.

Miss Carpenter is easily one of the best voices of the 20th century.

Beautiful
Karen had so much more class than the current group of whores that infest music today.

karen carpenter ....by a mile the best voice ever

RIP Karen.
The finest, purest voice ever.

Nobody is as distinctive as Karen Carpenter. She is an American icon and
paved the way into music history.

There was a time when everybody recognizes Karen C voice singing on the radio,
and still is happening. The best singer voice I've heard

she has such a naturally beautiful voice. not like the crap today where singers lip
sinc and have to get their voices edited for it to sound good. RIP karen

this woman gives me goose bumps when she sings that's how good she is!!!!!

what a voice one of the best female singers ever the songs evoke such memories
and capture pur emotion like no other songs can
rip karen

I dont think there is a better voice than hers in music...hands down...

i'll be crying whenever i listen to this beautiful song

OMG, a pure voice like this doesn't need to "glide" all over the place like today's
female singers who seem to do it in the name of "today's" RNB... her voice is just
incredible. I miss you Karen

Crystal clear voice. Simply magnificent!!!!!!

She has the best voice in the history of music. I was only 3 when this song came out
and I remember hearing it as I was growing up. I have always had a profound respect
for her singing, eventhough I typically am a metalhead.

Such a beautiful voice , hope she found as much happiness as she brought the
world.There as got to be the most amazing choir in heaven.

But besides all this, Karen was fantastic and the most beautiful voice ever!

It's that bitter/sweet vocal thats draws you in.........and leaves you wanting her to
finish at 4 in the morning.

This song was the favorite of Karen, its voice look like the pure diament and its style
is unique, kept silent Karen remains for me...My DIVA.

I've yet to hear anyone who sounded anything like her.

The best team, goup, sound, voice we have ever heard.

I speak no so much english,after I listen this song,Idid not understan everything, Ijust
know this is the most lovely voice of woman Ihave listen

One of the most purest, sweetest voices ever, unlimited talent Karen was, this is one of
my favorite of the Carpenters' songs, she looked really sweet in this video and thats how
I'd like to remember her by. Wishing she were still here today with that magical voice!

Her voice - wow! This group (she) was amazing!

I don't like soft music very much, but i have the greatest respect for the Carpenters. Richard
was a great composer and musician, and Karen, yes, she had one of the greatest voices
ever...

haunting yet beautiful..probably the best female singer of the 20th century.

most beautiful, angelic voice ever

she has a fantastic voice... but i don't compare her voice with others...a lot of
other singer are masters in their own style and sensibility... but she's definitly
one of my fave and greatest pop singer of modern music

What a voice...one of the greatest voices ever in my opinion...

Absolutely the best female pop singer of all time. Others are great, Karen just
happens to be the greatest. Que rico, de madre.

So effortless. This song still stops me in my tracks whenever I hear it. Those
words sung by one of the best. Karen.

WAS THERE EVER A FINER VOICE?

I miss Karen's voice. It was of an amazing quality.

Karen Carpenter's voice is one of the most sweet and melodious voices of all time.

I must admit - even though I listen mostly to Hendrix, Beatles, Zeppelin, Deep Purple
etc.....this woman's voice sends shivers down my spine.

karen carpenter--the one and only superstar :)

There will never be a singer that steps foot on this planet that will have the talent as
Karen Carpenter. She sings better than the angels in Heaven where she is right now
singing to the Lord, and I know he couldn't be more pleased.

Never has there been another woman with such a soulful and eerie lyrical voice as hers!
Our kids today are missing out on real talent...there are so many copy cats...but no one
like Karen Carpenter!

i love the carpenters. :) karen's voice IS just beautiful.

Karen had perfect pitch and she usually did a song in the studio on the first
take. A true gift from God.

She had the Stradavarius of voices, so sad shes gone.

I miss her like NO other artist.

oh karen we all miss you,crying helps us relieve the void you left behind,all
we have now is pictures and your wonderful voice

WOW!!! Karen was and still is the best.. Her voice will live on forever.. No one
will ever top her voice.. Miss you Karen.. RIP..

This is beautiful and how she is missed. One of the most untimely deaths in
music ever.

Out of all their songs this one clearly is her best vocally. So much depth and
emotion, and a little bit of longing and heartache I'm sure on her part. No one
can compare to her, and that vibrato of hers is one of the best ever.

Karen's voice still haunts her fans and listeners like me after all these years. What
a great singer!

Karen wasn't the prettiest singer of her time, but she was blessed with the purest
and sexiest voice. I still put her at the top of my female singers list, even after all
these years.

The All American Voice. Don't insult me by comparing anyone to Karen Carpenter.
If NASA should send a piece of music to another galaxy, this would be a good choice.

The sound of Karen's voice ... raindrops from heaven..

Beautiful......You are still missed Karen xxxxxxxxxx

Merci Bettyford13 pour cette belle vidéo, la voix de Karen est splendide, son visage
celui d'un ange, son talent eternel.......

her voice is simply angelic... simply unique,, i can sleep and i can still thats her
voice singing... wish she could have stayed with us more :( I know she is happy
up there!

by far the best female vocalist I have ever heard!! her voice is as smooth as silk!

Everything happens for a reason. We may never fully understand God's plan for us.
However, I wish Karen could have seen herself as most of us see her. She had a
beautiful smile, beautiful face and beautiful voice. Karen was (is) a truly beautiful
person.

She made me so happy when we were both young. Karen will always be young.
Perfection like Karen's voice is a once in a lifetime thing, I suppose we must be
thankful for recordings like this.

She's the perfect girl in the world.
Karen Carpenter, I think she don't need to make herself so bad.I think she didn't
have keep good fit, her voice will be very beautiful not because her body, It's all
about her voice and she touched most of the people's heart in the world. She 's
the perfect in my look, no one could displace her, we all love you, Karen!

Her legacy will never be forgotten.

you are simply the best karen. i love your voice and i will say you have the best
female voice ever i have ever known.

lovely song. brings tears to my eyes.

she was very lovely
I don't think a female singer with her voice quality will arise in a century. She was superb
and sill has lots of worshiper if I may say. One of earth's greatest loss when she passed
away tragically.

Greatest female voice........ EVER.

OmG....I am going to cry. That voice is just.

nobody compare you karen! today singer sing song without sense.

There has never been anyone like her and there never will be.

Beautiful,deep,rich voice for a female...we truly have not heard a voice like this from
anyone since her passing. Can you think of anyone??? So Awesome!

Karen is the best, what a heavenly voice. She lives on forever!

The most beautiful voice! god keep her close and rest in peace karen

Richard was a great composer and musician, and Karen, yes, she had one of the greatest
voices ever...

oh man, this song breaks my heart; her voice just sends me.

This song and performance crosses all musical boundaries, its a song the cuts into the soul.

THE greatest female vocalist of the past 50 years. There is no one who can compare to her.

There was just something special about her voice. There have been lots of great
female singers - Dionne Warwick, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Dusty Springfield etc,
but I wouldn't listen to their albums. But I could listen to her sing all day long!

Karen was God's gift to the world...

Heavenly!!

one of the best naturally talented female singers ever been heard. never gets old.

one thing about Karen is that when she sings she REALLY sing, just her voice, no studio
tricks unlike todays singers.

that`s the purest sweetest voice you will ever hear.

No singer ever had a more beautiful voice at such a young age as her, which lasted till the
very end...Karen just was an Angel, to hear her, to see her...in every single way.

I have never, ever, heard another female singer that sounds anywhere near this good.
Celine Dion is probably the best today, but Karen was better.

She was the best singer in the whole entire world.

What a sweet mellow voice she had, a jewel among jewels, a terrific talented performer
that comes along only once in a lifetime. She is still dearly missed.

a lot of singers sound the same these days, but she is definitely an original. no one has
her beautiful voice.

perfection! i could listen to her heavenly voice 24/7.

she had the best voice ever.
I miss her.

I Need To Be In Love:
She said that this was the one song that was her favorite and it was because it was
exactly like her life.

The only star that I cried over when she passed..what a horrible loss. A true voice..not like today.

Exactly. He let us have her here for a while before he needed her back. Absolute voice of an angel.

She and Ella Fitzgerald had the most perfect female voices of the 20th century. She should
have lived on for many more years, but perhaps God decided that he could wait no longer to
have her golden voice singing in heaven.

Damn, here comes a tear...

Words can never adequately describe her talent. I can only say it was angelic. Christmas
isn't Christmas for me without listening to their Christmas album. I thank God for giving us
this treasure for as long as we had her.

It's almost as if there's a haunting feeling that overwhelms your whole being just listening to
her voice in this song.

This song is so fantastic, it don't get any better than that, thx Karen, luv ya, i'll see u in
heaven, and thank you personally there!!!

I rarely cry. Her voice, so haunting, so perfect. It surely moved me!

She is so beautiful! Such innocence, such pure joy in her singing!

....omg that VOICE....so haunting, so perfect...i think she has the most flawless voice in
music! we miss you k.c.....

She sounded terrific whether live on stage or in a recording studio,this performance is no
exception, one of the best sounding voices ever, a unique talented person indeed.

Karen was indeed God's gift to the world...

Now that girl could sing.

Still one of my favorite songs of all time! What a voice!

Karen had the purist voice ever heard on radio. When she sang a lyric it was like hearing
the voice of God. You could feel the pain and dispare in her voice and the truth that she
conveyed in every word.

She was one of the best female vocalists ever

I saw the Carpenters at the Missouri State Fair way back in the day...they were just
magical...Oh Karen...the voice of an Angel and chased by demons. How much we
miss you. Not just the voice of a generation but the talent and gift of a millinium.

Thank You Karen for your awesome GOD gifted talent that you shared with
everyone. I wish you were still with us..TEARS!!!

I love a lot of heavy rock from the 80's RWD, but it's really strange, whenever I hear
Karen's voice I get goosebumps.

she was absolutely outstanding
melts my soul

The death of this young woman, was a monumental tragedy. It saddens me to my soul
when I hear here wonderful, unique and astounding voice. The loss of her cannot be gauged.

no matter how many problems you have on your shoulders to carry on, when you listen to
her songs, it will seem that there's nothing in this world to be worried about, her voice was
so calm and soothing,.and in the cold days and nights, she's the one, her voice, that
keeps the hour warm,,..
she's the one who sang so soft in the midst of this noisy world, and the world had learned
to recognize the voice w/c brings calmness in every minute that passes by!!!!
miss you Karen!!
terribly!

this song makes me cry,what a beautiful song and karen is the only one that can sing itxx

Karen, wherever you are in the corners of Heaven, I am sure that you are bringing much
joy to Everyone and all who hear your angelic voice.

Everyone is right Karen was and is still the best singer all over the world. Her voice is
wonderful and will be on peoples heart forevever

What a great artist. She will live forever in my memory.

I wish somebody could sing like her...the best ever!!

One word could ony describe this remarkable performer... 'superlative'
Karen Carpenter is indeed trully a 'bona fide' legend of an era

God... when she sings that verse, "When this day is through I hope that I will find" at 2:00,
it's just amazing. If it were anyone else but Karen I would swear it was synthesized, but
she has the voice of an angel.

i really really love her voice.

Her voice sounds so AMAZING! Even more than in others, in which she sings great.
Karen Carpenter is, in my humble opinion, the BEST FEMALE SINGER EVER!

One of most incredible voices ever heard!!!!
Karen Carpenter was one of a kind!!!

Absolutely, Karen has the best voice EVER. She's got the magic. No one sounds as good as her.

yes, she is THE BEST female vocalist there has ever been and will ever be...

Her voice is honey for our ears!

The best female singer I've ever heard.

Carpenters Karen was the best performer I have ever known on planet
earth, with all respect the other female singers,

I don't care what people think of her. Karen Carpenter is the definition
of beauty and singing on every sense of the word.

There's just no voice like Karen Carpenter !

Thanks Karen wherever you are...

HOW SAD TO LOOSE AN AMAZING PERSON WITH A BRILLIANT VOICE. X

It is sort of like van Gogh , you wish they would know how loved they are, but in their time.

The words speak for themselves. Karen just wanted to be loved and was lonely.
She sings from the heart. The most beautiful voice I have ever heard. If I were able
to see one entertainer perform for the last time it would be....Karen Carpenter!!

EASY LISTENING AT ITS FINEST...NEVER TIRE OF THIS- KEEP GOIN ON, KEEP ON KEEPING ON

wow,the first 101 of this song has to be the prettyest music ever sung

No attitude. No stage persona. No overproduction. No sexual content.
No absurd gyrations. No sophomoric lyrics...however:
Beautiful lyrics - Check
Beautiful voice - Check
Beautiful composition - Check
Real talent - Check
Natural beauty - Check

beautiful song ... beautiful voice ...and beautiful Karen

I remember when she died ....a very...very sad day ...

As soon as she sings one note you can tell who it is. I instantly get
chills. What an amazing gift she had.

Karen sings like an angel! The 70's had the greatest singers and music. Today we
only have freaks!

It's almost like God said, I will keep this gem for myself. Then in the early eighties we
suddenly lost Karen Carpenter and what a loss it was for me.

So beautiful...too young to leave us. Karen Carpenter's voice and beauty will remain timeless.

I loved her too. She was so beautiful and that voice. Wow.

The Carpenters are just Incomparable!!. Whatever the genre today, there are no artistes that
can compose and sing like the Carpenters. The first time I heard "the Carpenters" was in
the 80's. Today, when I listen to their songs, it is like walking back memory lane, to the
days of vinyl records and cassette tapes.
There is no one who can take the take the place of the "Carpenters.God took Karen away
from us because he loves her as much as we do.
Rest in peace Karen.

I have never had to look up one single lyric Karen ever sung, Her voice was clear and
understandable. No other singer in has ever matched her clarity.

you are absolutely right about the clarity and what I think is the most amazing female voice ever

Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, could touch Karen Carpenters Voice. She and Richard made
one of the Greatest Musical Groups ever to record Music. Her Voice was a rare gift. When she
sang, her haunting angelic golden voice, just pierces straight through you. Karen sang with
absolute innocence, from her heart, from such depth.!!

I'm 11 years old, from Brasil and I think the song is very beautiful.

Wat een super stem,
bedankt,
Jack en Jannie.
uit Hollandscheveld

i love carpenters.Best voice of any white female ever!

.now this is singing..!

Over 5 million hits and she has been dead before the internet was born! She is
legendary! Love you, Karen!

KAC..one of God's masterpieces.

I have never heard such a beautiful voice as that of Karen Carpenter. Such a
tragic, unnecessary young death.

I never tire of this song and always get those goosebumps when I hear Karen's
voice. A tragic loss - there will never be a voice like hers again - a true gift from
God. Richard knew how to capture that special quality.

Karen, the most wonderful singer, never be forgotten. I miss you, Karen

People may say I'm too gloomy with these Karen songs, but to much pride I say
that Karen was best range of voice that my experience and ears have heard...

She was "the girl with the golden voice". But thanks for recordings like this
and videos like this she still is.

In my opinion, nobody can come close to such a soothing beautiful voice. When
my son was 2 he was singing the songs off of The Karen Carpenter Story:) It is
great to have these videos to watch, it keeps her and Richard alive. Gosh what it
would have been like to see her in concert! Could my ears take in such and
amazing voice?

"Now" is among my top five favorite Carpenters recordings, and probably #1. It's
the perfect song, in the perfect arrangement, sung by the perfect voice. And there's
SOMETHING in that combination that perfectly captures and sums up the essence
of Karen's vocal magic--the lithe phrasing, the effortless expression, the melancholy
soul, and the absolute, emotional TRUTH evident in every note. Hearing this recording
is always a TRANSCENDENT experience for me. Most amazing, Karen did it in one
take.

this singer is at the top of my all time favorites!

Wow, I'm moved to tears remembering such a beautiful voice.

Karen touched my heart with this song. So beautiful!

I always think of her at the anniversary of her death. Amazing that 25 years have
passed since we lost this beautiful voice. If I could bring back one person, it would be
Karen. I hope and pray that her voice greets me in heaven.

It always amazes me that this was a run through, first take. That in itself is amazing.
Karen had that unique capability of making you feel every emotion behind each one of
her songs. This one is no different. It makes me cry every single time. Not because it
is in fact a beautiful song, but the fact that this was her last recording. Thank God He
let this angel shine on Earth for 32 very short and wonderful years. Love you Karen!

Most incredable, special, amazing, prefect, female voice ever. WOW! Love her dearly,
miss her lots. Very special last son as only she could sing it.

The most beautiful voice ever! I miss her greatly...I love you karen.

after all she's always one of best ever. Thank you KAREN.

In a couple weeks, it will be 25 years since this legendary vocalist died. Put her
in the same category as Patsy Cline and Janis Joplin.
Karen's voice was, and still is one of the most beautiful voices on the planet.
God keep you Karen.

She is and always will be the best singer ever period! She will never be replaced. She
is my favorite. Her voice is truly perfect.

A person who doesn't find this to be one of the most beautiful recordings ever, must
have a serious problem with his heart and ears.

Simply awesome ......the most amazing angelic voice that I have had the honour and
pleasure to listen too. Karen ..... I hope you now know what you really meant to us! xox

I just can't control my mind.
Cause it touched me very much.
I really love the singer, Karen Carpenter.
Her voice could took our heart away.

the talent of this so very human being will never be duplicated...what a heart of
sadness..what a soul filled with untouched dreams...we all miss you!!!

She was the greatest back then ,she is the best now miss Karen ....

Incomparable!

the most beautiful voice ever...i wish there was another like it but there is not..there are
good ones but no karen..r.i.p

One of the most beautiful and moving voices ever to be heard....thank God we can still
listen to Karen...

out of this world.Always gives me a lump in my throat when i hear her sing .

No voice ever will replace the sweet voice of Karen Carpenter. If I had to choose only
one voice to listen to forever- it would be hers.

One of the most beautiful voices ever recorded.

i love that she's an alto. you just never hear that anymore. everyone sings in a high
register, screaming. she gets so deep in her register. love that.

one of the best female voice in history. This song still gives me chills.

the sweetest voice this world has ever heard

Smooth, soft as velvet, classy and soulful. These are just some of the words that
describe the PERFECT voice of this lady. NO ONE, but NO ONE will ever be able
to copy or imitate her voice!!

Nothing in today's music comes close to this on any level...this is beautiful, soulful
music with a beautiful voice. We'll never hear music as great again as we did in the
1970's...a fun, innocent era.

maybe the most pure natural voice of all time

Karen's voice is so perfect it lights up the darkest corners of our hearts

she joined the choir in heaven

From Brazil to Karen with love...we miss you, your voice and talent...a star forever
in our hearts...this song says so much to many people in the word, including me.

Many others have said it and I'll repeat it: greatest voice of my lifetime.

A truly beautiful talent, with a magical voice and the truest emotions. Rest in peace,
Karen.

SIMPLY THE BEST.

She was a songbird of uncomparable proportions. I saw her live and she was
magnificient. She is and will remain my favorite singer until my last day on earth.

that voice is magical. never to be heard again.

i hope God would give us soon a gift like her........We miss a voice like hers

Greatest voice of all time.....dear God....

I have never heard vocals like this.
And I have listened to a lot of music.

It does not get much better than this. Karen voice is amazing and the quallity of the
recording is incredible.

Thanks for this. Why do we only get limited time to listen to an angelic voice like
Karen's when those who proliferate nowadays, and often sound like strangled
cats, just wont go away?

I have always said that if I could have any voice in the world, it would be Karen's. Such
range and clarity. MISS HER to this day!

I too believe she had the greatest female voice of my lifetime- no one can touch her to
this day!

An amazing singer with a voice of an angel. The mastery of her lyric delivery is superb - not to mention
that she just ripped my heart out and exposed the depth of my longing for my lost love...thanks for
being a wonderful and true star - we miss you Karen Carpenter.

Every time I hear Karen Carpenter sing a song, it's the same thing:
The first line takes my breath away and makes my heart soar and the next line puts a lump
im my throat and brings a tear to my eye.
There's no-one in Heaven that I'd rather have a conversation with today.
R.I.P. Karen.

Karen Carpenter had the most blessed voice ever!

No other female artist has a voice like this she is perfection truly amazing !

The Finest Female Vocalist EVER!! Voice Of An Angel.

So so beautiful no one can ever replace or come near to her. An angel.

she's the rarest gem in the music industry. a voice from heaven lend to us for a short time but
has to go back. we miss you karen.

Thank you for a wonderful voice. There will never be another voice like Karen's.

Karen´s voice is so powerful, her interpretation here is beyond awesome and she could not impress
me better than she - always - does...
Applause from Santos, São Paulo, Brazil.

karen Carpenter had so much talent..
She is a total Inspiration.

Magical voice a veeeeeeery rare talent!

I first heard karens voice when i was 15..it gave me goose bumps.....I am now 52 and it still does
it her vocals were unique and will never be surpassed....

She's my favourite singer of all time.....male or female.

Quite simply the most beautiful voice I have ever heard and I am 70. RIP Karen...we miss you
so much. I have every album the Carpenters ever recorded.

she sings like an angel...youre one of the best singer ever....

*sigh* I know all their songs. This just goes to show that someone's words can really hurt. Karen
was deeply wounded and hide it behind a beautiful voice. But she shared it regardless of her own
self pain. We miss and love you, Karen. Thanks for the music.

One take Karen. You are the best

She was gorgeuos..... Such a beautiful woman.

Karen is just fabulous!

Karen's voice was a gift nobody could ignore at the time. In over
30 years, I have YET to hear anyone
even come close to her vocal abilities. She was one of a kind,
there will never be another.

Best pop music alto voice of all time. One of a kind.

God took her early because he wanted an angel with a perfect voice in
his choir. bless her soul

The best female vocalist in the past 50 years in my opinion...and she didn't
want to sing at 1st. She just wanted to be the drummer...

Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, could touch Karen Carpenters Voice. She
and Richard made one of the Greatest Musical Groups ever to record Music. Her
Voice was a rare gift. When she sang, her haunting angelic golden voice, just
pierces straight through you. Karen sang with absolute innocence, from her
heart, from such depth.!!

NOBODY'S VOICE COMPERABLE WITH KAREN'S! REST IN PEACE...
FYI

Such class, glamour, sophistication, and beauty. Whitney or any slut of today
could not even touch the toenail of Karen.

Manager Jerry Weintraub once said you only need to hear about 5 seconds of that voice
to know exactly who it is. Hers was a voice for the ages - never been one like it before, and
never been one like it since...

One of my most favourite songs ever - what wonderful words and such a beautiful melody
performed by one of the loveliest voices I have ever encountered. So so so very special. What
a terrible loss, but what an amazing blessing to have these records from the wonderful Karen.
God bless you karen - always rememberd and forever you will touch lives with your amazing gift.

karen was and always will be a legend, noone can ever match her voice she is superb. an angel
taken away but still lives on

God what a beutiful voice

I'll take Karen over any Mariah,Gaga,Rihanna,Jennifer,C­hristina and the likes !

man she had a voice that even today reduces my heart to putty, what a tragic loss to our part
of the universe

wow... her voice is like a diamond.... so sparkly and beautiful..... so sad about her untimely death.....

beautiful lady, AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL voice............ LEGEND FOREVER XXX

She had a haunting voice that cut right to the soul.. One of a kind.

The voice of an Angel will never die, she lives in her songs and voice never to be replaced.

The angel came here . . . sang to us . . . and left us . . . no substitute to be found

You are a million% right! Singers can imitate Elvis' voice and Frank Sinatra and others, but I've
never heard any girl singer that could duplicate her's. Her voice was in a category all it''s own.

Got to be the biggest loss in pop history,she had a beutifull voice R.I.P

I like Allison Krauss' voice a lot but Celine makes me want to turn the radio off. Nobody has the
rich texture of Karen's lower range and is as clear as a whistle with her pronunciation

Emmy-Lou Harris would be one. Celine Dion. Allison Kraus. etc. But Karen might be the best
even out of them!

she's one of my favorite singers of all time... too bad she went to heaven so early...Now she is
singing in Heaven...God Bless her soul. I wish I had that kind of voice....just dreaming

The sound of her voice as clear as a bell,so unique.There won't be any like you Karen no other,others
won't be able to.

I remember hear voice being described as a "Voice like Honey"
That has stuck with me for a very, very long time.................... simply because her voice
is.............. "Like Honey"
Will any of todays vocalists be recognised for the same!!!!!!!!

Karen and her Voice shall live on for eternity...with the angels she sings, and Heavens Choir
shall never sound so sweet. I miss you to this day.

Sweet Karen, this song was so funky, the VERY BEST female voice ever = what a loss to the
music industry and the world !!

Just a thought...... Karen had the voice of an angel when she was here on earth
and all the angels were looking for lessons on how to sing, so they took her away
to be with them in heaven. Bet she still has the sweetest voice up there!!!

Karen is the best female vocalist that have ever lived. So tender and honest!

She was just awesome! The likes of her, we'll never hear or see ever again.

just beautiful vocals and there will never be another.......this world sometimes is
NOT fair......thank god for technology that we can still hear her beautiful voice,
its tragic, but what memeories most of us have listening to this VOICE

I don't think anyone comes even CLOSE to sounding like Karen Carpenter.
Her voice was like VELVET - everytime I hear her on my CD's - she just makes
me melt. Her brother was so VERY TALENTED writing and doing all the
arrangements and harmonies to the songs. Another LEGEND that has sadly
passed away - SUCH A SHAME!!

karen is spectacular,i love this version of the song,she sings so effortlessly,a
true treasure that is badly missed from the music industry today,not too many
true vocalist out there today that can sing virtually anything and she sounded as
good live as she does on her albums,not many today can say that,when you watch
awards shows now and listen to artist sing,in many cases make you wonder how
they are even up there,lol,they just better be glad they can fix bad vocals in the
studio

One of the best vocalists of all time, I would listen to them for ever

The sound of a real human being with real human feelings. Nothing faked or forced here.
We all miss her so much.

I really believe she is a once in a lifetime singer. No one will ever match her heart and voice.

I wish somebody could sing like her...the best ever!!

Karen warms my heart and fills it with joy!
It's hard to put into words what I feel when I hear karen sing but I'll try.
It's like taking a walk on the beach on a summer night with a cool summer breeze gently caressing
your face! Yep, that's what it is like.
She touches my soul!

Her voice... what a gift... This is simply elegant.

Thank you Karen Carpenter for helping us understand just how deep the human soul
can be.

In my opinion, none of the "screeching howler monkeys" that have ever competed
on or even won American Idol even come close to comparing to the incomporable
voice of Karen Carpenter. This also includes her contemporaries. She was and is
still simply the best!

Sheryl is great, but there will NEVER be another Karen Carpenter. What a loss!

This song let's us know why Karen had such a prfect and beautiful voice!She WAS perfect
as well as the high notes as the low.And HOW high and low,unbelievable range that voice!
Let's never forget her,she deserves it!

Karen Carpenter has the voice of an Angel.
Now she is singing with God's other Angels in Heaven.

Remember that Madonna said Karen is an idol and an inspiration to her.

what a fantastic voice!!! everybody loves it...

whAT A WONDERFUL VOICE!!!! EXCELLENT...

I've heard this song so many times from so many different artist... but
I can tell you this one is definitely the best one! I've never believed Karen
would reach such high notes!
Happy Birthday to you Karen!

Karen is my favorite female vocalist of all time. I've never heard her sing
this. It does bring you to tears. She's been gone from us for 25 years this
year; God Bless her beautiful soul.

Karen's wonderful wholesome heartfelt song and rich warm voice makes
me feel happy ! Karen trulLy is a STAR ! Her music is timeless ...

Karen's voice was bell-like, beautiful, clear and strong. May she rest in
peace. She has the most beautiful of voices that so few have. I hope she
is happy now.

I have listened to all versions of this song and Karen Carpenter sung it the
very best by "FAR". It is a shame she left this world so young. What a
beautiful voice she had. She would have been hard to compete with for any
of the best voices in the business.

I think that she's quite possibly the best pop vocalist ever, and I know what
I'm talking about, I'm a professional bassist and a pretty good singer too.

I love Linda Rondstat's version of this song the best, until i heard this one.
Though it's sad considering Karen's departure from this world.

every detail of the song she had sang was performed excellently! RIP then,
to my idol Karen anne Carpenter,sing these songs up in the heaven with your
Creator and your parents...i really miss you!!!

Ive seen a lot of pop videos on you tube...No one evan comes close to the
praise and glory her voice receives both from the younger and older generation.
She's like a gap to connect the young and old where everyone can
unanimously agree together about her wonderful music.

What a wonderful voice we lost. They do not sing/write songs today like hers.
R.I.P. Karen We all miss you very much.

I have to say that I listened to Elvis' version, Neil Sedaka's and now the Carpenters
and this version is the one that is making my eyes well up with tears.....I think
I know which one I like best.

FANTASTIC !

Karen Carpenter, the greatest ever, what a perfect voice, never be another one
like her.

karen sang this just for the musicians to get the lead and it turn out to be the
final take....that goes to show how magical her voice was..pure perfection!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Barry Manilow!? What the hell!!?? Karen rocks...her soul pours from her
voice, Barry sings, sings great, but Karen bends the knee...

awesome recording, her voice was that great that shed often do a track in one
take, an that was subsequently the released version. yes this was just a track
laid down for the musicians. wow!! you can just hear the raw emotion from
karen in the song. perfect vocal i'd say, especially as it wasn't even a single
or album track.

The small cracks in the voice . . . the perfect timing and intonation . . . Richard's
beautifully crafted arrangement . . . simply incomparable . . . where do we get
another one like that?

every time when a search for new songs of The Carpenters i am amazed by
Karen s voice, and now i am a fan , I remeber when a was a kid my foks listen
to the Carpenters too.

what a beautiful voice, like no other.

Quite Superb! What a huge loss I felt when Karen died. There has never been
another voice to compare with her's and I doubt there ever will be again. So
unique, so melodic, so beautiful. You are still sadly missed Karen but your
voice will live forever.

Easily among one of the most beautiful songs ever made. Karen and Richard
Carpenter made the world a sweeter place, and left us with reminders such
as this.

Wasnt she just amazingly brillant.

The very Greatest female vocalist the world has ever had.

Greatest female vocalist ever

when Karen sings ,its like hearing a great song for the first time ,dont
matter that its 38 years old or fifty ,or a hundred ,great talent is timeless.

She has got to be the best female singer of all time.Her voice is like velvet. Singers
like her are non existant these day.We don't seem to be producing great talent anymore.

After reading a lot of comments here on YouTube, I have come to the conclusion
that of all the entertainers we have lost in the last 50 years..... Karen is missed the most.

Her voice was perfection - there has been no other female pop star that can come close
to her....

She's my favourite singer of all time.....male or female.

she sings like an angel...youre one of the best singer ever....

So so beautiful no one can ever replace or come near to her. An angel.

Thank you for a wonderful voice. There will never be another voice like Karen's.

thank you for the best love songs ever
we will never forget you!!!!!!!!!!!!

yeah,,you're really on the top of the world for you are the brightest star we've ever seen
here on earth!!
we miss you terribly!!!!!

Wow! Beautiful video for a beautiful woman with a MOST beautiful voice!!! Thank you!!! :-)

What a pure voice she was! So healthy looking here. The world lost a true gift when she died.

She was gorgeuos..... Such a beautiful woman.

Such a beautiful voice , hope she found as much happiness as she brought the world.
There as got to be the most amazing choir in heaven.

we´ll never get another voice like hers in the entire life

Karen's remains timeless, soulful? and passionately reminiscent. Absolutely uncomporable.

Oh, God, I get goosebumps listening to this renditiom of the Carpenters! Great, great, great!!!

Karen Carpenter has the most amazing voice!!!
Beautiful!! Love her!! Never been another female vocalist like her!!!

I never heard a female voice so neat and pure as the one that she had. How she switched
tones in this song is just amazing.

funny thing about the Carpenters, they are unbeatable,the best of the best.

What an incredible voice, I need to go find a tissue

OMG, I had no idea. Karen was one of the greats. We miss you Karen.

I love Her.... what can I say but the biggest lost in music history

Karen is just Karen. No can describe her! just listen to her. Then, figure out all the assholes
around her. God bless Karen, taken so early, but never forgotten.

Karen could sing Anything. This is so awesome.
I love the changes in her voice. She still amazes me.

She had the most wonderful voice,NOBODY since is better...............

I think this song showcases why Karen's was such a unique and beautiful
voice perhaps more than any other.

she has that million dollar smile which nowadays is much talked about but never
reached! and her voice - well, thats out of this world : velvet is NOTHING on comparison.

The best version of the song. Karen, you were an angel!

Great sung by Karen Carpenter, may her voice now sound as perfect as ever in heaven.

Rest in peace Karen, u gave us so much joy. Thank you Lord for voices like this.

thanks 4 ur songs Karen....u'll always be remembered.

oh ,i love her voice ! its like ...sunshine

the sky sent us an angel for 32 years and this angel sing wonderful but in 1983 she was
called for God for sing him with this fabolous voice this angel was called Karen
Carpenter and we miss her

magical song and voice, simply magical

Karens vocal is incredible as usual and it's all natural...she never had any training...do
you beleive that??? What a talent..

It is incredible .... her breathing is amazing ... seamless.

Karen's voice is simply golden! I've been watching a lot of Carpenters videos over the past
few days. Even though it is already 25 years since she's left us, I find myself grieving for
her now.

Beautiful voice. Very distinctive and could never be copied.

Amazing. This live version has beautiful nuances not found in her extraordinary recording.
Greatness in a voice: mellow, velvet, a jewel among jewels, befitting descriptions all; soothing,
gorgeously moving on the most primal level, like a mother's reassuring hand at the cradle, like
the epitome of the presence of the most beautiful woman in the world.

I just love Karens voice..its speaks to the soul.

Karen had the special gift to make people gry when she song love songs
like this one, her voice is so touching

The most Amazing and unforgetable voice ever

What a loss to humanity ... I miss you Karen ...

I loved this song back when I was in high school. I still love it today. Even
though I loved loud fast tempo rock, R&B, funk, and disco, Karen Carpenter
was my favorite female singer, and I still miss her.

What a beautiful song, performed by such a flawless voice and a dear soul.

Karen had a special way of bringing the emotions out of people! I will
NEVER forget her!

Nobody comes close to her voice. When you hear that voice and it bring
chills to you, then you know that you have heard the best singer that ever
lived. God Bless....

i love all the soings of carpenters its great to be in love hehehhehehe.
They are the best 4 me....love it so much!!!!

Sumarises the sad loss of such a talent this and where do i go from here both
bring a tear to my eye R.I.P. Karen the music world lost a huge talent when
you passed away.

How beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Zijn er nog meer woorden nodig,NEE,deze vrouw is gods mooiste creatie op
zang gebied,en op haar manier straalde ze zoveel moois uit,maar jammer
dat ze het zelf niet zag,karen,dankjewel,voor alle mooie boodschappen die
je ons meegeeft,in al je mooie liederen,en je mooie stem,voor altijd in mijn hart.

amen...it makes a mean old man weep...

Karen Carpenter has one of the best voices ever I love their stuff, daggy now
but been listening to it for 30 years now. I love it.

If only she could have seen what an absolutely beautiful girl she really was, we
might still have her today.

She's the perfect girl in the world.
Karen Carpenter, I think she don't need to make herself so bad.I think she didn't
have keep good fit, her voice will be very beautiful not because her body, It's all
about her voice and she touched most of the people's heart in the world.
She 's the perfect in my look, no one could displace her, we all love you, Karen!

Perfection like Karen's voice is a once in a lifetime thing, I suppose we must be
thankful for recordings like this.

Karen voice is magical and amazing.

maybe the most impressive female voice ever...

Karen's voice is one of a kind. God bless her.

Angel on Earth - Angel in Heaven- Kaeren Carpenter

What a voice!!!! Karen Carpenter's singing was always perfect, but this
short portion of a medley was perfect for her voice.

Oh my God! Karen Carpenter sang it beautifully. I always loved all of her
songs. There will never be another singer that will have her stunning
voice. I miss you Karen.

She is just so so smooth. Unlike many other artists, I can listen to her
songs over and over; never grow tired of them!

Karen could give a new beauty to the most classic song!

madonna, brittany, kylie, and all those other oh-so-wanna-be famous female
vocalists...take stock at this and learn from the great karen carpenter.

beautiful,astounding

I am confused by the comment that Karen has a shania sound in this
song. I mean Karin Carpenter came way before Shania Twain.RIP Karen
you were simply the best.

In my opinion, Karen possessed the most beautiful singing voice ever
given to a human being...

I am 26 too young to have appreciated her when she was alive,
but this woman has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard,

im karen's fan forever!its just sad that she is not with us
anymore...i love you karen,youre a legend.

SHES A LEGEND I LOVE HER.

R.I.P Karen. You were too good for this sh1thole of a World Karen.

voice of a god

i love the Capenters, i love Karen - she possessed an angle's voice. There
will be no one singing like her. I love "only yesterday" that teaches me
to be stronger and believe in a better tomorrow

Karen is my all time favorite and this is one of her best
songs. She looked great in this video. What a fabulous voice.

Music, lyrics and mainly her voyce... is fantastic

Timeless music...timeless acts of our century.Karen is just great.

A great loss of talent after she passed. Never will ever hear a voice close to karen's
ever. Its a shame we loose the people who make us happy. God Bless the Carpenters

she took a ride to heaven god bless her soul xxxxx

the best song ever

gosh i love this song soooooo much!!!!!

There is no singer that it is wonderful more than her.

She has the most beautiful voice I've ever heard..!!

Karen Carpenter had the most perfect voice imaginable, about as classic as can be.
And this song is I think her best one, although she has so many wonderful songs.

I have to say she was one of the most beautiful women to sing. I had a BIGTIME
crush on her when I was a kid back in the 70s.

She had the voice of an angel! How can we ever forget her....??

One note and you know it's Karen. She is exquisite.

What a voice !!!

She was the best back then,and she is the greatest now ! LOVE HER......

Karen,had absolutely one of the purest and beautiful voices i had ever heard!Amazing!

the sweetest voice on earth

She sings the song with such feeling and people can relate to what she is saying...her
songs are timeless.

Darn straight. Incredible voice and passion.

No comparison. Karen was far superior. The band could (and did) tune their instruments
to her voice, her pitch was so perfect. Thats really true.

This is the best voice in music EVER!

She had a perfect voice. Her songs make me cry.

no one comes close, perfect singiing voice r.i.p karen

Karen Carpenter is indeed an American LEGEND 4ever.

She's a national treasure

I never heard a more soothing vocal than Karen's and I expect that I will never will again.

She is just like the English admiral of the seas, one of the many of them,
died at the peak - we only remember the good things of them. Shes
100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
0000000000000000 times better than the beetles(beatles)

Karen and Richard Carpenter are great. Karen has an fantastic voice.

Pure talent, absolutely beautiful voice.

Karen Carpenter voice was flawless. She never forced a note. A beautiful melodic quality.

Everyday I hear that hauntingly beautiful voice singing and it makes me miss
you so much. You're always in my heart...

Still missing you Karen. There will never be another one like you. Happy Birthday!
You are dearly and deeply missed. - Robs

happy birthday karen thanks for your music and your great and pure voice

outstanding... thats all i have to say

Amazing how you can understand every word she sings, so clear and
soulful.. indeed a rare talent!

Some stars are so brillant....they are called to light up the heavens..........

Very happy Birthday to karen !!!!

This lady had the most beautiful voice you could wish to hear.

Karen Carpenter One of my all time favourites singers.
Wonderful creative soulful artist. When I hear her rich voice and I listen
to her thoughtfully arranged melodies and lyrics I feel her intelligent loving
personality.

every piece of her recording,the simplicity of her voice as well as her beauty
comlies with the harmony of each piece that she recorded in the hearts of every
fans,and i am definitely one of them...RIP to Karen Anne Carpenter,your songs
will remain in my heart as long as i live...i miss you:-)be happy in the arms of
your Creator..

A song very, very beautiful created by Leon Russel and performed by the most
beautiful female voice of the xx century. Thanks Karen anywhere you were.

If a vocal performance gets any better than this, someone point me to it.

, we have to thank God for giving us the opportunity to listen to one of the
greates voices ever!!!!

its great,love the carpenters,my child hood.....

This song was written by Leon Russell and the genesis of the song is
nebulous. Many artists have covered the song, but good gosh almighty
did Karen ever nail it. What a talent.

The Carpenters songs will live forever. Amazing. RIP Karen.
You sure did have the voice of a "Superstar"........

The best song they ever sang! Unrepeatable! Such a distinctive voice!

Now Karen herself is a superstar from the heaven for us..unvarnished sweet
angel voice.. Never be tired of hearing her voice.. And I am sure through
the earth history there could be only one precious jewelly voice,untill now
and from now on forever..

I understand that this was the first take..nearly immaculate..She personifies
a legendary singer.

The amazing thing is...she only wanted to be the drummer to start. Her
brother, Richard, convinced her to sing...her voice is timeless. One of the
best ever..

1 of the greatest

Extraordinary performance by Karen in her trademark low register. No one could
match her -- perfect inflection, perfect tone, perfect rendition of the lyrics,
and that underying deep current of melancholy. Raises the hair on the back of
your neck.

Karen´s voice is the most amazing and crystalline voice in all modern pop
songs... The final of the song is the prove of it!

She was really the best...what a voice!

Best voice I've ever heard.

Karen's tone and perfect pitch will never be duplicated ... neither will her
beautiful yet somehow haunted spirit. We miss you - an Angel in heaven now.

one of the music industries most amazing voices....and I mean in the world!!!!

This amazing woman never hit a bum note. This is live! Not touched by the
tricks of the recording studio. Karen you were amazing. You just cant find
talent like this anymore. You live on through your music.

Nobody will ever touch Karens voice man!

What is really sad is just how far QUALITY has declined in America. Think
about it...who are considered the two most "talented" Pop "Singers" in the
world today? Britney Spears and Madonna. On a scale of 1 - 10 of talent, those
two amateurs are 3's...and Karen Carpenter was a 15!!!! No Dispute...No
Question, and anybody who knows "MUSIC" (melody and harmony) knows
this to be true. We miss you Karen, and GOD do I miss the 70's.

I wish she was still here to sing to us, I feel so peaceful when I hear her voice.
This song expresses my deep feelings.RIP Karen, dear one.

She has my vote for best female vocalist...ever...so warm...so present...yet
soft...not treated like todays wannabe's

Karen Carpenter was arguably the best singer on this planet earth, love others, if I were single I'd marry her

All these "American Idol" singers can't compare to Karen Carpenter. She was truly unique. A lot of people
comment on how great a lower register she had, but she also had an outstanding high register. Check
out "Want You Back In My Life Again" and "Love Is Surrender" and you will know what I mean.

She was a master vocalist and he a master composer and arranger. You haven't seen that combination
in one family since the Carpenters

my absolute favorite song in the whole wide world. nobody sings like karen and no one will ever again!

Fabulous!

she honestly had no idea just how talented she was, considering herself only a second-tier singer. yet as
far as i am concerned, hers is the voice by which I judge all other female singers

lately listening to karen carpenter sing has become a dirty little pleasure that i can't admit to anyone,
except here :)

When you look at pop music today you wonder what happened - half naked, crazed, loud, no real vocals,
untalented, a bloody mess. Then you look at a this.....

WOW !! She had a legendary 3D voice !!

Like so many, we lost her for what ever reason, and when we did; we lost one of our very,
very best.
Like Jim Reaves she was a completely pure voice that seamed to come effortlessly like an angel, but we
only got her for a short time. What a huge impact these artists had on the world, and in such a short time.
We really should appreciate what they left us in the time of technology to preserve it. What if they lived
before the ability to record.....

karen is the frank sinatra of women

What a voice...

Karen's beauty blossomed over the years, from the very first time we saw her. She was gorgeous and had
the best singing voice in the world to match her beauty. I still miss her.

Awesome! Karen is the best! Thanks for sharing this :)

Karen beautiful voice will never be matched. I love and miss you Karen!

Amen! There will never be a voice like Karen's.

she had the most natural sound; not forced, it just flowed. for the assholes who made her feel ugly about
herself? I hope they're happy. we lost a beautiful soul and sound that can never be replaced.

That woman was unbelievable.....there was no one like her....nor ever be again. Thx Lord...we STILL enjoy her.

God bless her soul and thank God for her and her brothers music. Raised on the good stuff (70's)
and Superstar is just one of my favs. by them. Her voice was angelic, pure and soulful. Real talent
in it's prime without all of the bs that they do now with these so called pop star barbie dolls.

just perfect''...my gosh..nobody has ever came close to her voice....thanks for the post,

Happy Birthday Karen - rip. I just thought of you and found out it was your birthday. The sweetest female
voice there ever was that went straight to the soul.

She's always been my favourite female singer too. The most expressive, pitch perfect, soulful, and unique
voice of them all and she never gives into the urge to show off like so many other good singers do.

What an angel voice, I wish I was born in those days

her voice is so effortless, a God given voice. no wonder he wanted her up there to sing to the angels.

Man....listen to her voice.....what else on earth sounds like that!

To say her voice is beautiful is understatement. It is sublime, magical and irreplaceable

Her worst performances are much better than most of the crap that passes as music today. Her voice
really resonates literally with my whole body and soul.

no matter how angry i get i cant feel anger when i hear karen sing. her voice just makes me melt. no kidding

This must surely sound like angels singing.

I never met her but I love her. They'll never be a voice like this in our lifetime. She's so incredible.
Have you ever felt some emotion in a song. As a matter of fact in all of her songs. How I which I
could have met her.

my god what a beautiful voice and a beautiful woman.

I guess you all have read this a million times, Karen had a voice of an angel.... we all miss you

her voice can bring tears to me after all these years of hearing these songs.
she seems so simple and pure as a person. i think its that simple purity that comes thru in her voice
tone. no industrial commericalism here. no over dubs, edits, etc.
just raw talent from her heart.

I grew up in Connecticut. The Carpenters were from New Haven. We were so proud of them. The entire state
was crushed when we heard she died.

I totally agree with you (and everyone else) when you talk about Karen's beautiful voice. I also
completely understand how you can feel her voice inside. The 'feel' that comes over me when I
hear her sing is like velvet carressing my soul. She simply had one of the most perfect voices
ever created.

This is the most beautiful and touching song, yes, it touches your soul. Karen is missed, she was
our angel for a while.

I've been replaying this video million times already but I still want to play again and again. I admire
Karen's way of performing, she is so clean and no trace of lust contrary to the singers nowadays. She
is truly an angel. I thank God for sending her again to be seen singing even through the computer
screen. Her voice is beyond compare.

Imagine if we could still this angel singing?

Shes the best....

I can't believe that there is not even one woman on this planet that can sing these songs like
Karen Carpenter. Not even one. Soooo Sad. I miss her.

Unforgettable Karen....

I love you Karen. From the day I first heard your voice I fell. Cant wait to meet you in heaven!

Best. Vocal. Ever. On. 45rpm Vinyl. At least by a white girl, and I ain't being racist here.

Her voice brings me to tears.....no one...absolutely no one can even come close to this beautiful voice...and
never will.

I listened them when was a little boy, and never forgot this angelical voice. Love from Brasil.

she was such a fabulously talented musician/artist. it's as if she was born singing. her timing and musicality
is phenomenal. uncanny, really. such an intelligent and natural talent. Unique.

I love karen carpenters song! She's one of the best voice I have ever heard. Her music will be one of
the topic in my website .

this talent will never be seen again..it is without peer.....

As soon as I get to Heaven Im getting front row tickets to Karens next show.

The Most BEAUTIFUL and Talented Female artist of ALL TIME !!!! Period. I was 12 when this song was
released, it'll always be my fav., May Karen's Leg. live on forever

What a musician she was!! It's not just that her voice was beautiful. She's feeling this song intensely. And
playing the drums at the same time. Incredible.

Great song by the best female voice of all-time

Karen is really one of the best female vocalists the world ever had..,and all of her songs and music will last
as a masterpiece even after the next 500 years. Most singers nowadays, on the other hand, won't.

Great comments by all. Eternally the best female vocalist ..Karen and pure songs will always have a place
in my heart..

Barbra Streisand's voice can reach only my ears! Boy, but Karen's....all the way to my heart :-)

Karen looked just so good in this clip ..what a loss her talent was .what would she be doing today ..oh yes
singing real songs unlike the crap we have come to know..Now its how little can we wear to make up for
lack of talent

Karen Carpenter remains one of my all-time favorite vocalists. Her voice was amazing.

This voice is everything.

Dear Karen, we will always be close to you in our hearts

Karen is the best no question.

It is so difficult to find such a beautiful voice in the future.

Karen had a voice that comes along maybe once a generation. Perhaps
two.

Wow. Just WOW.

Probably the most beautiful voice i will ever hear in my lifetime.God bless you
Karen and thank you for touching our lives with your music :)

Nobody is better than Karen and Richard. Her voice is better than anybody eles.

What a heartbreaking waste! Karen Carpenter had the most unique, beautiful
voice. I grieve for her family and us her fans. I miss the fact that we cannot
hear new songs from her. I loved listening to her voice, even now I miss it so
much. No one else has ever touched me as much with their voice than Karen
Carpenter.

God, how I love her voice...

God Bless you Karen, such a beautiful voice I can't help shedding tears when
I hear some of your vocals.

Just shows what studio effects like reverb and good mixing can do with an
already great voice. And remember this was 30 plus years ago. Still sounds
great! When I was a teen in the seventys my buds liked kiss, ACDC,The stones
as did I. But I was the only one in love with karen. Always will be! When ever I
her her songs I always wonder what great music she mite have made if she
had lived? One of the first shows I want to see when I get to heven is karen,
I know she will be there!

as a teen i just thought this was so stupid, now, as an adult, and a musician i
realize that , yes.. there is extra cheese here.. and it's the most gourmet , ultra
rare, yummiest cheese ever. this was just so well done .. i feel guilty for
mocking them as a teenager..

We will never see this wonderful kind of music grace our charts again, it's all
mostly dreadful. And we will never have anyone like Kare with that wonderful
voice. She was a one time thing.

A voice, and a song, for the ages.

everytime i hear this song, it gives me chills down my spine... Her voice
is truly amazing

---
Don't Cry For Me, Argentina;

As always, Karen's purity and clarity of voice overshadows everything.

I'm a big Madonna fan and not much of a Karen Carpenter fan, but your
comment about the purity and clarity of her voice is right on. She puts
Madonna to shame in this song.

As argentinian I have to say that this video is absolutely awesome. I`m
not a fun of Evita but I respect her as a unique woman of my country
history. I´m a big fan of Karen and her angelical voice is the best to
performe this song.
---

Karen Carpenter what a talent

She has the voice of what I think an Angel would sound like.

Karen Carpenter R.I.P. I love and loved your voice. An Angel died that day.

i know ever generation says its music is the best.but you take these 2
and they sound better than anything out there 2 day

I love it. Her voice is absolute magic.

karen carpenter best female singer ever,her brother richard always brought out the best in her.

My favorite female voice, rich and balanced. Beautiful sound and song!

so good!!!!!! so nice!!!!!!! Wonderful!!!!!!!!

What a wonderful woman with the most amazing voice.

Karen had the rare ability to talk, as she sings. her speaking voice translates nicely to her
singing voice, which is rare. she doesn't have to change her inflection or tone from speaking
to singing, which is a rare quality in singers, especially female singers....what a loss to
the music world

Karen Carpenter is one of the greatest voices in recording history.

An absolute perfect talent that will never be repeated. Miss you Karen.

what a voice! There is no female singer to this day that I like as much.

In these day of lip-syncing, over-produced garbage, Karen Carpenter's voice was absolute,
pure talent. To this day, she is unparalleled. Even if one doesn't like this kind of genre, her
voice was simply stunning. Furthermore, Richard was an unappreciated, songwriting genious.

Pure talent... supreme voice and charm...

The range she had on her voice was incredible. Sounds so effortless.

Not to forget Richard....a genius of an arranger.

Ze is en blijft een toppertje..wat een stem!

Karen Carpenter is no doubt one of the greatest voices in recording history. It's pure silky
magic. God's gift that has blessed our ears. Our whole family love their music. The
Carpenters made my childhood memorable. We don't get this sort of music these days.
God bless her soul. RIP.

karen,you are a superstar no one beat or match you ,love you

Every time I hear this song it reminds me of Karen Carpenters gorgeous voice...

When I listend to this song for the first time, I was 14. I learned lots of English words
(I'm a Japanese)by Carpenters songs but I counldn't understand really the meaning of
words simply because I didn't have life experience. But now, I am 46 and every single
word mean to me and I believe their songs are like jewelly to me. Thank you
Carpenters and I love you so much, Karen!

IMPRESSIVE, really IMPRESSIVE

When I listened to this song I was a teenager and now I am 49. The words are so true
and I can feel the song like telling a story of one's life. It is a bit sad that people get
old. Nothing can change that but only memories can be brought back.

This song really extracts the incredible/beatiful talent of the Carpenters.

Karen was right on the cusp here, at her most beautiful and totally in command of her
voice.She died on my 26th birthday of all days.. lord I miss her!

as much as I think Karen was the most stunningly gorgeous woman on the planet
and the finest voice ever.....

her voice and those harmonies are perfection.

she does not even sound real,it's hard to believe a human being can sound like
this,i can't even explain it.perfect is all i can say.

Karen has a lesson to teach all these so called divas of today --- she doesn't have
to bare her flesh and do stupid things like pole dancing but she wowed the whole world
with her great singer and her wonderful voice. I hope we'll see another Karen in the
music industry soon. I get sick of seeing everyone competing to bare the most flesh
on MTV.

The best female singer ever. See you in Heaven Karen xx.

her voice gives me goose bumps,god bless you honey,we miss you!!

one of the first 45's i bought for you that know what i mean. damn it dont get no better
than this!!!

Nothing comes close to Karen Carpenter!

This is my song number 1 in life.

Karen was the greatest vocalist ever. She couldn't be touched. You can feel it way down
inside of you. Karen truly used her magnificent voice as an instrument.

Voice of the century without a doubt. Pure, strong, undefiled.

Absolutely beautiful...one of the most expressive voices of all time, soft like velvet. Full
of sweetness and emotion.

It's undeniable- Karen is an untouchable! Her voice is so full of emotion, any song can
make you think of a time in your life, a love of your life.. It's a good thing we still can
listen to her voice. You are missed, Karen.
RIP

The story of my life.. Wonderful song!! I got teary eyes at the end of the song, when
she closes her eyes.

with due respect to Celine
Karen Carpenter is untouchable !!
Nobody can be better than Karen Carpenter in her own style and songs
Celine Dion is good in her won style and songs
both are equally good but not better than one another

makes me cry,such a lovely song and could only be sang so beautifully by karen

this is the most perfect song ever sang. Her voice is so creamy and smooth that you
never get tired of hearing her. A++++++

Watching this, then watching the crap today makes me sick.

It was fascinating watching Karen flirting on the plane. She was sooo beautiful! And
the greatest female singing voice ever, bar none!
R.I.P. Karen. I love you and hope to see you in heaven someday!

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh im so inlove in this song...when i sing this song in KARAOKE::::the
people are silent and want to listen the song coz they said...it makes them INLOVE......he
he he I LOVE YOU? CARPENTERS::YOUR SONGS ARE FOREVERRRRRRRRRRRR
RRRRR

She is my abosolute favorite. I'm a six foot big black guy and my friends think I'm crazy
for listening to this kind of music.Who cares,not me. Love of music is liking a favorite
color, who says I should like green when I really like black

sweeeeeeet voice........

she was the courtney love of her generation

Awesome. The world has suffered a tremendous loss.

The best voice we ever have heard.
But, since 25 years, ...., I was at that time 18 old.
Fascination?
Yes, certainly, since I was 6 years old.
Noone have done it once again.
Best regards from Hamburg, Germany

No singer today has this much talent. They are all visual performers surrounded by a
lot of hype.

she has that million dollar smile which nowadays is much talked about but never
reached! and her voice - well, thats out of this world : velvet is NOTHING on comparison.
I have under evaluated ' em a bit - may the LORD forgive me that!! because:SON OF A
GUN, what fun they were !!!

there was absolutely nothing wrong with her body and for sure not with her voice or
talent.Best voice ever...period.

I have never, ever, heard another female singer that sounds anywhere near this good.
Celine Dion is probably the best today, but Karen was better.

karen carpenter was a truly beautiful, talented woman who's death was a great loss to
the world.

Probably the purest voice ever!, beautiful

....omg that VOICE....so haunting, so perfect...i think she has the most flawless voice
in music! we miss you k.c.....

I fell in Love with this superstar when I was 13 years Old. My Mother had bought me the
Live in Japan Album in 74. I well up with tears to this day when I listen and view the work
of art that She and Richard created together- We all Love you Karen.... still.

Wow her voice is one of a kind. No one sings like this anymore

No singer ever had a more beautiful voice at such a young age as her, which lasted till
the very end...Karen just was an Angel, to hear her, to see her...in every single way.
Karen, I wish you happyness forever

What a sweet mellow voice she had, a jewel among jewels, a terrific talented performer
that comes along only once in a lifetime. She is still dearly missed.

Why did you have to die Karen?!?! We miss you so much and your beautiful voice! We
will never forget you and your beautiful voice!

The mix on this is the most balanced I have heard on any 5.1 SACD or DVD recording to date.
Karens vocals are clean, living in the center where they belong, the instumentation is wide and
rich, and the background vocals envelope you like a choir from all sides.

No one compares with that voice today... so smooth and soulful. We miss you Karen :( Thanks
for the memories!

The most lovely voice I´ve ever heard.

Ella was probably thinking: "What a precious young angel"
Karen was probably thinking:" I can't believe I'm singing with Ella Fitzgerald"
And I'm thinking, Thank you for the post; this was a precious moment in time.
What a beautiful arrangement.

Karen sounded phenomenal in every song she took on, a talent unmatched to this day.

This is one of the greatest duets of all time. These days, they'll slap any two people together.
But Karen and Ella -- their voices, styles, etc., complemented each other perfectly.
Wow.

Karen sounds so damn awesome! She is my sweet pea!

Sometimes we forget what a magnificent voice and style Karen had...

Music sucks nowadays. She had such a voice. She was a natural.
What a celestial voice!! So smooth. She sings perfectly. I love her voice.

Karen is like an angel. Listening to her amazing voice takes you to heaven.

Karen looks so HOT in this video, not to mention a voice as smooth
as glass. The greatest female singer ever. Love her!

There is NO COMPARISON TO KAREN CARPENTER!

karen rest in reace you were an awesome person and had the most beautiful
voice ever. wish you were here. the world would have better music.

Karen had the most beautiful voice ive ever heard, like an angel.

R.I.P
Karen Carpenter :`(
She was wonderful and simply the best female vocalist ever, in my opinion.

Karen had the greatest voice among all female singers! She was awesome!

karen how i wish i leave in youre time...youre realy great..god youre a
voice goddess

I love The Carpenters anyone who says they dont is a lier!

we miss you karen...what a voice...

I am a construction worker and cry when Karen comes on the radio!

Karen has a better voice than Barbara Streisand!

The Carpenters will remain in my mind forever!

RIP Karen. I have always loved your voice, and it was such a tragic loss
of life and talent when you left this world. You still have the ability
to make me cry!

I can never get enough hearing any of her song. Such irreplacable voice.

one of my favorite songs ever! so beautiful and timeless.

The most beautiful voice you will ever hear is Karen Carpenters mesmorizing
voice!

Great undying music! I'll never get tired listening to it.

The Carpenters cant be beat!

No voice will ever match Karen Carpenters! She will be in my memory forever!

Only The Best can make you feel it.........

to this day there is not even one singer that can match Karen's voice
you can imagine if she was still alive.

Karen had the best voice we'll ever find. Period, sadly. Whetever
contemporary 'diva' you could dredge up would be a pale comparison.

Karen was the best female vocalist ever!

If I had the opportunity, I would have married Karen Carpenter! What a sweet
pea she was! Great voice and attitude! I would have loved if she could sing
me to sleep! What a beauty through and through!

Karen Carpenter, What a super star and super voice! The world lost a wonderful
singer when we lost Karen. She really made us all feel so great. I only wish
she knew how wonderful she really was. I still morn her passing.

God bless Karen Carpenter, a beautiful person inside and out, and the greatest
female singer of all time

i nearly cried when i listend this song

I call my Karen a Godsend!

, but... no one sings like Karen, and no one had more right than her to
sing "everyone listens when I start to sing". The most unmistakable and
beautiful voice ever...

My God, Karen is Beautiful and With a Voice of an Angel..I Could Have Fallen
in Love With Her..Wow......Karen, Rest in Peace Knowing That You Have Brought
So Many Tears of Joy and Smiles to People All Over the World Through All of
These Years..Karen, You're Beauty and Beautiful Voice I Will Remember Forever
and Ever....Thank You so Much.....Sigh.........

This is music! Karen is awesome!

She Had the Certain Look That I'm Most Attracted to, Plus the Absolutely
One-of-a-Kind Beautiful Voice of an Angel... Karen, You'll Be in My Heart
Forever...Thank You.....

We love you Karen!...R.I.P.

What would happen if she were alive? I haven´t ever heard anyone with that
kind of wonderful voice!

THAT SAID, really, no one is better than Karen Carpenter.

Greatest voice ever!

such a warm and beautiful voice, to listen to Karen Carpenter is like listening to an angel
sing, filling your heart with joy and sadness.

The best voice ever... nothing today compares to it..

her voice is absolutely unique.

She has the most extraordinary voice of all time! I use to love listening to her as a kid and
love that voice. In my opinion, there's no one else in the music business that has such an
exceptional voice.

Gorgeous voice!

For those of you who did not like Karen, screw you! She can beat any female vocalist of today!

no comparison, her voice will live forever, i grew up listening to her voice in the 70s, i
remember all these songs on the radio. damn im old

When I hear modern female singers, especially rap, it's pathetic compared to Karen.

Her Voice Is One Of A Kind.
The World Loves You Karen.
X

Musicians, writers and artists should learn to accept the fact that their work will rarely be
recognized in their lifetime. It's a sad reality. I can't believe it's been nearly a quarter of a
century since Karen left this planet. Their music deeply touched me, too.

She has the most amazing voice. Her voice has got to be in the top five female singers'
voices of all time!

Best singer ever. Great diction, emotion, pitch, phrasing ... the works.

some of the best music ever recored , i wish we had this kind of sounds today ! the music
of today is such crap ! rap, hip hop, brittney, lopez, beoncye, and so on , such garbage !
i miss karen so much ! rip my love !

Music will never be the same without her.

We lost the most beautiful voice of all time!

Karen had the prettiest voice ever. Such a shame she's not around...

She was a diva to put all contemporary 'divas' to shame; not worthy even to be compared
with her. She was the standard by which all others are to be measured by. Period.

Karen will NEVER be erased from my memory!

If Karen Carpenter were here now she would have whipped Elton and Elvis! What a damn
shame! I liked Karen so much and still do!

Nobody beats Karen Carpenter!

A poetry in motion!!!:)))) I love you Karen!!!

she still sends shivers down my spine!!1 her voice just gets me ...makes me cry. BEAUTIFUL xx

She was the best!!! and is still the best!!! Rest in peace angel voice!=)

Rest in peace, beautiful songbird. I mourn your passing.

My blood pressure goes down when I listen to Karen Carpenter. Her voice is so so soothing. We
love you Karen. You're the best!

karen must have the most distinctive and beautifull voice we have ever heard...she really was
the best ever female or even any artist ever!!!

I will NEVER forget those awesome times in my life when this song was a hit. Karen, you were
a Godsend...such a beautiful lady with a beautiful voice to match!! Heaven is lucky to have you
to sing this song for them!! God bless you, Karen, we miss you & love you!!

Karen Carpenter is the most beautiful voice of al time!

Beautiful song. They aren't given enough credit for how brilliant they really were

beautiful voice beautiful songs-so sad God took her so young-maybe she's teaching the
angels how to sing

Watch her facial expressions as she sings in the studio. Talk about feeling your music...

A haunting gourgeous voice that you will never forget! WOW...

A star on earth, a star in heaven. The most talented female singer who ever lived. Period.

I am nearly 44 years old and remember this song when it first came out. Karen had the
most beautiful female voice of all time.

The greatest voice God ever created...bar none!

Her voice rings through the ages..
I grew up with them..
I sure will die with them..
Miss you so dear Karen...

STUNNING, ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!

Karen is the best!I can't find better....

I cant put into words how beautiful this is,Karen rest my sweet Lady!

IT IS SO MIVINGGGGG. When we know what happened to Karen, what a moving vid. I like
so much he voice, she has indeed an angel voice.

One of my all time favorite songs in the world. I dedicate it to my only Lover. A day like
today we met 5 years ago. I will never forget you...

Not only was Karen's voice heavenly, she was a very, very good drummer!

I don't think I have ever heard that sung as beautifully. Surely she has added greatly to
the Heavenly choir!

really overwhelming !! I am 70 and remember the Carpenters, my wife and I had just
been married a short time. The music means so much to us. Thanks

Oh , how lovely! been searching for this forever, thank yoy so very much for posting
this.she is missed so very much....

Thank you for posting this video of perhaps the greatest voice of all time.

I was born in 1964! I wish I would have been born and could have been married to this
sweet pea! I would have treated her like Gold! I am a man and balling my eyes out! Rest
in peace my sweet pea Karen!

She was the best back then,and she is the greatest now ! LOVE HER......

This women Had talent that should be remembered forever,

Karen Carpenter and Ave Maria. A match made in heaven but performed here on earth.

No-one compares to Karen Carpenter.

She made me so happy when we were both young. Karen will always be young. Perfection
like Karen's voice is a once in a lifetime thing, I suppose we must be thankful for recordings
like this.

I wasn't even born when she died, but she has the most beautiful voice I've ever heard.

Karen, the greatest ever!

God lent us Karen and she returned to Him, after giving us Grace. Richard and Karen are
both gifts we cherish.

Karen Carpenter's talent came directly from God. I visited her grave site today for the first
time, and was moved to tears thinking of the beauty that she brought to this imperfect
world. God bless and keep her!

Karen had the most beautiful voice most of us will ever know, but without Richard's talent
for composition and arrangement, the world probably would never have seen her.

this song is fucking awesome

I would have married karen Carpenter if I had the chance! A beautiful woman with a beautiful
personality and a beautiful voice! RIP my karen!

Best female vocalist ever!! Bar none.

if another person sings this music the result will be completely diferent. She is unreplaceble!!!

i've spent days crying after i first heard this song. What a tragic end to such a lovely soul
and what a voice. I hope she's ok up there.. She's touched my heart and thats very rare......

this song is gorgeous. the song doesnt compliment karen, karen compliments an already
amazing song. she was amazing. RIP KAREN CARPENTER. may you be singing as
beautifully in heaven as you did on Earth!

Good Song + Good Voice = Masterpiece

Karen is still alive in my heart!

Karen makes todays performers look like hell!

She has the most extraordinary voice of all time! I use to love listening to her as a
kid and love that voice. In my opinion, there's no one else in the music business
that has such an exceptional voice.

She has the most beautiful voice I've ever heard..!!

Karen has the most perfect female voice of all time to me! Beautiful!!

God she was magnificent! The two together with his composing and her angelic
voice were and still are incomparable!

she was an angel

...this is what you can call a SONG !!!...it comes with melody and vocal range and
just the singer and her feel of the music......not the noise of today's hype pop
market..We Hear Ye.. We Hear Ye.....RIP Karen....

She was 20 and had the grace and talent of a diva.
Love you always Karen!

I love this womans voice! She has to be in the top 5 female singers of all time.. I'll
let you guys figure out the other 4 ;)

What a loss-one of the truly outstanding female vocalist of all times.

I wish Karen Carpenter was my Mom.

possibly the most wonderful voice ever

I think she's close to god now.

it s the best song!!!!!!! in the world,and her voice the only one in the universe,
aguanten the carpenters y karen!!!!

Karen Carpenter is too good for that hokey hall of fame. We don't need "Rock
Journalists," especially now with youtube. Ignore the yapping jackals!

this song is gorgeous. the song doesnt compliment karen, karen compliments an
already amazing song. she was amazing. RIP KAREN CARPENTER. may you be
singing as beautifully in heaven as you did on Earth!

You will never hear such a beautiful voice as Karen Carpenter!

Karen Carpenter, What a super star and super voice! The world lost a wonderful
singer when we lost Karen. She really made us all feel so great. I only wish she
knew how wonderful she really was. I still morn her passing.

she's the only one who make a happy all the time

Wow, No Singer Can Touch My Soul Like Karen Carpenter..I Love Her Beautiful Voice as
Well as Her Beautiful Brown Eyes and Beautiful Smile..I Wish I Could Have Had a Chance
to Hug Her and Tell Her How Wonderful She is..It's Amazing..She Had the Certain Look
That I'm Most Attracted to, Plus the Absolutely One-of-a-Kind Beautiful Voice of an Angel...
Karen, You'll Be in My Heart Forever...Thank You.....

This Lady was the best !she was a gift to this world . thank you...

Karen in my opinion is number one and always will be when you compare her to todays music.

Karen is number one in my book period!

I could "live without the rest, because I've found the best" ... Karen Carpenter. RIP

What a pure voice, she was born to sing!

She is very sensual when she sings . . , more so than any of the current
half-dressed brats of today will ever be.

if you ask me ... I think Karen had the purist, most beautiful natural voice
over anyone in the business and beyond. I heard people try to copy Karen's
voice and failed miserably. There is no one that comes even close.

what a loss for this world when she died. no barbra streisand, jennifer lopez,
celin dion, mariah carey, whitney houston or anyone else can replace karen.
may she rest in peace.

Pure talent, absolutely beautiful voice.

I hope time machine can be invented.

she had, and still to this day, the most pure & beautiful female voice of all times....period....bar none!

It's been 25 years ago this month (Feb) the world lost Karen. Millions of people miss her & her
angelic voice. Sweet Dreams Karen. RIP!

Best Female Vocalist EVER!!!!!

She was and still is one of the best singers ever. She captured everthing. I was brought up with the
carpenters and theve riched my life and many others. i wasnt around when they where here, but no
one has even came close mataching there music abilties in the music industry. Rip Karen

In my opinion, no else can even touch it. Karen's voice is pure and soulful. Her rendition shows
a deep knowing of the song. Bravo Karen! You will live forever in my memory!

Voice of an angel-RIP Karen

this is my favourite song sang by karen she had such a sweet divine voice and this song is just
great.her voice will live on forever.rebecca

No female singer has a voice like Karen's, velvety is a good adjective to describe it.
Rest in peace Karen, your songs will live on forever...

Your voice is immortal!!!! The entire world loves you and surprises you... Happy birthday Karen!!!!!!!!!

She sang like an angel and now I am sure she is one. RIP

B E A U T I F U L - Love it! Such memories!

great singer......one of the best.

The world cried when Karen died.

God doesn't allow somewhat perfect down here for a long time, I do thank Karen, knowing her
voice was one of the marvelous joy I ever had. so comforting, soothing my soul. Everytime
cannot hear her song without tears.

One of the greatest voices of our time.She went away too soon.

yes you're right...she's marvelous! God given talent..

A beautiful tribute to a wonderful singer. I'm so thankful that her music will live on forver.

this was a beautiful woman with a god given beautiful voice,she was not fat at all, she was
perfect ,but it was others who said that she was fat. in there later songs , and her solo songs
you can hear her cry for help,only thing is thou we heard it too late ,and in 1984 god took back
his angel, we miss you karen

The voice of an ANGEL!!!!
Best Fe-male vocalist EVER!!

Agreed! Period.

Karen, how I miss you ... Thank you for having been there.

her voice is magical...her music enchanting... theres never been anything like her before or since!!! Her
voice proves to me there is a God in heavan

outstanding... thats all i have to say

Karen Carpenter
One of my all time favourites singers.
Wonderful creative soulful artist.
When I hear her rich voice and I listen to her thoughtfully arranged melodies and
lyrics I feel her intelligent loving personality.

A song very, very beautiful created by Leon Russel and performed by the most beautiful female
voice of the xx century. Thanks Karen anywhere you were.

Karen is the queen of music in my heart. She was totally one of a kind and the earth
was lucky to be graced by this angel! She's indeed one of the angels of our better nature :)

Best Female Vocalist EVER...voice is SO SMOOOOTH and PITCH PERFECT.

The Voice of an Angel..great

OMG, I loved it. I took up choir cause I wanted to sing like her. She is my
ALL TIME favorite singer. One of the best voices ever.

-- my favorite female vocalist -- EVER. she may have left us way too soon, but
we will always be reminded of her immense talent.

They could make a bad song good. Karen's wonderful voice will be with us forever.

She was so awesome. She makes me feel all warm inside.

Her voice could make you feel every emotion. She was and is still the best
female vocalist,

Karen Carpenter WAS/IS still the best female vocalist I have ever heard in
my life. Her voice was crystal clear. Absolutely ANGELIC!!!

her voice never quavers, and is as strong and beautiful as ever. Thanks
for the memories.

----
The Carpenters - Trying To Get The Feeling Again
This song wasn't supposed to be released. they did the recording of the vocals
only once, to lay the track for the instruments. In fact, Karen passed away
long before the instruments were added to this song. I'm not sure if you could
hear it, but Karen was flicking through the pages as she was singing/reading
this song. This song was unaltered in words, making Barry Manilows original
version 'unoriginal' because he changed the words with permission from the writer.

You can hear the page flick just before she begins singing the second verse...

Considering that the vocal was never intended to be heard by the public, it is
amazing how much raw emotion Karen put into the song. With her voice, Karen
conveys the feelings contained in the words of the song perfectly.

This song gives me goosebumps! Karen's voice was just hauntingly beautiful in
this song. She once again demostrated that raw emotion she was famous for. She
was probably one of, if not the best female singers ever.
---

Karen Carpenter's voice was one of a kind and the seperation of voice and instruments on this
multi-channel disc is absolutely incredible.

Karen is the greatest female singer of all time.

I will never forget the first time I heard that voice.
I was in the eighth grade, that awkward time when everything and nothing matters, sitting in
an English class. From the open partition that led into the social studies classroom wafted the
most beautiful voice I had ever heard. It was a female voice, of course. And she was, it seemed,
singing just for me.
"Just like me," she sang. "They long to be close to you..."
That was my first exposure to Karen Carpenter.

Karen Carpenter had the most beautiful velvet voice.

It's no contest, as many others have posted, Karen Carpenter had the best voice ever by far.

There has not been a quality female vocalist since Karen Carpenter. (Sorry Madonna, Celine, and Brittny)

God decided she'd be better-off entertaining Him...

The best female voice in the past 50 years.
God, Karen Carpenter was a treasure ... very missed.

Thank you God for letting us have Karen Carpenter for the brief period you allowed for her to dwell
on Planet Earth. Folks, listen to her. Now, listen to the American Idol crap we're being spoon-fed
these days.

Karen's voice is pure and true; beauty personified. Words are inadequate.
And people still see it after all these years. What a gift she had.

There will never be another voice like Karen's.

I'm a rock and roll guy...but Karen's voice is my all-time favorite. Beautiful

Karen has the voice of nothing else, so perfect and true. Don't mess with her or her fans.

I once heard Karen described as "the girl with the golden throat." I can't think of a better way
to describe her. Her voice is one of a kind, a rarity. She is timeless!

Totally live this time...very rare; And her voice is beautiful!

Another wonderful rare example of Karen's vocal "live" performances...not lip synched. She
looks and sounds magnificent. In my opinion, she was one of the best female vocalists of all time.

She had a lovely voice that can never be replaced.

There will never be another voice or spirit like Karen Carpenter's. This is surely what the music
in Heaven will sound like.

Ever since I first heard her voice I was in heaven. I have never heard a more natural and perfect
voice in my entire life. Even while grocery shopping if she comes on their radio I have to stop. She
has the voice of an angel and I feel the loss even years after her death. She will never die as long
as I live for she is in my memory and heart.

She had a perfect voice.

Karen's voice is a hershey bar melted and poured in your ear

I thought that she had the best voice when I heard her in '70 and still play her music today. I also
saw her perform live several times and was great live. She also took the time to speak to me, sign
autographs and even mailed me a birthday card.

Outta this world! Why do we get left with the crappy ones?

If there is such a thing as a voice of an angel - she had it...

i had this song in my cd and i played over and over again what a voice.

Awesome talent & voice.

No words to discribe Richard and Karen's music, they are in a league of there own.
I are an Icon. How proud must their parents be to have 2 talented children. Their music
will live on in so many of our hearts. Now she's a singing angel. Karen we will see you
in heaven, and Richard do not stop giving us the pleasure of lisening to your music.
Thank you so much.

I cannot think of a better singing voice than Karen Carpenter.

Karen was and still is the greatest female singer. There has never been anyone who could come
close to her talent.

She had the voice of an angel and also, she looked good.

Her voice is the most beautiful ever recorded.

there will always be singers who can sing high notes, there will never be another Karen
Carpenter...NEVER.

Karen was the greatest singer of all time. No singer even comes close. Karen held emotion
and feeling. Two elements that singers today couldn't even do for a trillion dollars.

only excellent. No more

She was the greatest artist of the world for me and still.

I try so hard to match her voice, but just can't hit those low notes as comfortly. Her voice is
truly one of a kind.

her voice one in 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 never again will we hear somebody of
her perfection!!

You are right...Karen has the best voice of all time...she is my favorite singer ever!

One of the most beautiful voices i've ever heard. All to often the best and most talented
are taken from us to soon. I miss you Karen

This girl had the best, most smoothest voice ever. There will never be another Karen.

The most beautiful song i've ever heard. Its a pity she was taken away from us so
soon, so young.

you can take britney, shakira, j-lo, and any other female pop singer today, roll
them into one, and they still could'nt compare to the incomparable voice of one,
the ONLY Karen Carpenter.

I think that she is the greatest female ever!

Karen Carpenter knew how to touch the depths of one's soul with her incredible voice. No musician
has had quite the ability that Karen Carpenter had, to unlock one's emotions. Her voice is a great
gift to humanity. You're terrbily missed Karen...and never forgotten.

She will always be My Singing Angel

A Beautiful song, from one of The greast voices in modern music EVER!!!!

Karen's voice is so perfect

One of the most beautiful performances of music I have ever heard! Karen's voice could
melt a heart of stone.

One of the best songs ever, sung by one of the greatest voices ever.

She sounds like an Angel from Heaven singing to us here on Earth.

Karen Carpenter's voice is that of an Angel in Heaven. At God let her spend a little time
singing for us here on Earth.

There is a Heaven. Karen Carpenter sings there.

No one has ever been able to sound like her.

You can't touch Karens voice. The quality and tone of her voice is unrivaled to this day.

there has never been a singer with such a beautiful voice as Karens!

... because she had a unique, wonderful voice.

Many weddings in the 70's were crowned with this song and Karen's pure vocals still ring true
today. Unequivocally, the best female singing voice to grace this planet.

probably the most beautiful voice I have ever heard

She had the most natural voice.

Karen Carpenter, Aaaaahhh.... she was something else. Her voice is the sweetest thing I have heard
to date. She is one person that I fell for solely because of her voice. It was so heavenly, you just cant
get enough of it. Keep wondering if I am still over her ;)

all songs of capenters are great!I will always remember karen till death...

She's the best friend a song ever had.

I completely agree that Karen's voice could turn anything into gold. "Angelic" is not quite the right
word, tho -- her voice seems not celestial to me, but very deeply human with a touch of sadness to
it. Very hard to find the right words to describe it.

It speaks to the emotions that reside in the heart.

its perfect

No voice has surfaced yet to even TRY to equal hers.

best voice, perhaps . . . never more

I remember the first time that I ear the Karen 's voice in Bach with this arrengements and piano and
chorus. UMMEASURABLE. When I compare this one with anothers interpretation I really love Carpenters.

oh beautiful!!!!!!!!!

I know, eat this Simon Cowell. She'd be the all time American Idol on how to use a beautiful gift practically
perfectly. I can't wait to hug her in Heaven and ask her to sing for me.

your voice for ever.this is an angel.from catalunya kises for you..

Her voice just flowed....so beautiful.

PRICELESS!!! Karen Carpenter is soooooooo great. There's no voice on earth that could ever come close
with those melancholic and sweet sweet angel voice. She just calms me each time i feel ready to freak out.

Karen was the best singer ever.

no female singer out there has a voice that even comes close to Karens. pure perfection!

I love her. She have the most incredible voice.

Karen's voice is so mesmerising that it holds you close to your heart and it touches it deep inside.
Simply super.

Karen Carpenter, without a doubt one of the best female voices to ever record. To really
appreciate it you have to dawn a set of headphones and listeen to her sing.

mrs. carpenter voice its the best ever i love how she sings

I don't think anyone could ever outsing Karen Carpenter. Her voice is unbeatable.

The most beautiful thing about this song is as soon as you listen to it it reminds
you of someting or someone. This is pure talent and ive not yet to find someone else
who really makes me feel all these emotions when listeing to a song.

She had a perfect voice.

THE WOMAN LEFT US TO SOON

Karen's voice is so beautiful and timeless. Every time I hear a Carpenter's song I feel
a little sadness for the fact that she left this earth far too soon.

one of the greatest singing voices of all time

The finest female voice in all of pop/rock, ever.
And Richard's arrangements have to be among the best in recent memory. The Carpenters
were a perfect, once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon -- there may never be anything like them
ever again.

there arent any words to describe her voice!

This video Rocks even though it´s old, this song is very great memories come along
when you hear it, her voice is the most lovely I´ve heard

beautiful song, beautiful voice. Karen Carpenters voice is one of a kind!!

voice of heaven

, but there will NEVER be a finer vocalist, male or female than Karen.

This lady could really sing.

That's because Karen is incomparable -- which means no comparisons can be made to her.

KAREN HAD NO EQUAL AND NEVER WILL.

this is the best female voice there has ever been

Karen was the voice! So brillant, so perfect... Thank you for gave me the oportunity
to listen your beautiful voice!

Loved this. . .Karen Carpenter was one of the best singer in world. I admire her
greatly. This from a 31 year old African American living in the 'hood.'

what a beautiful woman with the greatest voice of all time!

Best voice in the world.

That voice! Other divas may have bigger voices but none have the control and the emotion
that Karen had.

World has lost the most female powerful voice of all time.

What a voice!

She, point blankly, has the best female voice ever.

Greatest female voice ever. The 60's and 70's make everything else look like total crap.

awesome!

There will never be another singer as wonderful as Karen Carpenter.

Personally I think she has the most beautiful voice ever in the history of voices.

Karen is an angel in Heaven now. She came, she sang...and then God called her back....

Karen had the perfect voice

new respect for kd lang now- karen had has the best voice - you could pick it in a second. what
perfect quality. superstar

One of the greatest voices of our time.

What a beautiful woman & what a beautiful voice!

incredible...that's the way i describe her voice. she makes it look easy to sing but it is difficult to sing
the way she does and be so consistent at it ... so free and makes you feel good and soothing all over
on the inside. the world could use many more voices like hers today.
What a voice!

Karen had such a beautiful haunting voice. Gently piercing. She lives on and on.

Most sublime, lovable voice of the 20th Century.

Karen Carpenter, what can you say, just the best voice ever

What a wonderful lady with one of the finest voices ever.

with all kinds of resperct, neither Whitney or Eva was in the same league
as Karen, not even near

There is a place and time within that none but Karen can touch...

no one can ever sing like this. it makes you feel like ur on a cloud daydreaming

I could not have said it any better. She was one of a kind.

It wasn't "cool" to like the Carpenters then, so I kept quiet. Now I'm old & bold, and
proud to say the Carpenters were a class act, and Karen's voice is eternal.

i fell in love with her voice when i was elementary or intermediate school. Never fell
in love with anyone else after that cuz no one could sing like her... absolutely no one.

Angelic voice once in a millennium years.

Her voice comes from somewhere else, it is very affecting; speaks to the soul.

Karen's voice was beyond a GIFT !

Karen Carpenter will always be the purest voice in rock - she may not have had the vocal
power of The Wilson Sisters or Pat Benatar - her range cannot be equalled.

golden voice fantastic!!!

IMO the most beautiful and sensual female voice ever recorded.

A voice of pure gold. The world lost possibly the greatest female vocalist when Karen died
so very, very tragically young.

This is how angels sing.

superb looking lady with an out of this world voice great music i never hear these days anymore.

its simply awesome the nicest and lovely voice i ve ever heard,,,,,Karen,

Not just angelic, one of the most musical female voices of all of recorded music's history,
opera stars included, the only one that supersedes Celine Dion in registry coverage.

Not many things make me smile but when I listen to Karen's voice it brings a smile to my heart.

She had such a beautiful voice, there has been no other like her since! Heaven has an Angel for sure....

god, she was just perfect... just spot on. definitely one of the greatest singers of ALL time!

A writer once described Karen's voice as "soul-searing" and I always thought this was true. I was
listening to one of their CDs today in the car. Karen and Richard will last forever.

Karen Carpenter's voice is one thousand times more compelling than the image.

I remember hearing Karen's voice on the radio when "Close to You" hit - I was about 6 years old and I
thought "wow, I bet they get tired of going around to all these radio stations every day and singing that
song!" What a voice - the older I get, the more I realize what an amazing instrument it was and the
interpretive instinct she had - the combination is rare... and the result is timeless.

Anyone have a time machine?
I would go back to save her.

Truly tone perfect and a true beauty.

the voice...one of the most gifted and tender voices that could effect everybody... there's only one
voice and it lives on...it's karen carpenter

From my lips Karen to your ears ears in heaven, you are beautiful, with an angelic voice that has a
haunting sadness to it. Thank you for giving us the beauty of your voice, and your smile.

NO ONE CAN SING LIKE YOU

Heaven is very lucky.

Karen's vocals just rip right through the lush arrangments like a chainsaw. How such a small woman
had such an incredibly powerful voice is still mind-boggling. I would categorize her voice as a
controlled volcano. Richard's arrangments and compositions are fabulous, but that voice is so
powerful. Love it!

i love that incredible voice and that awesome smile

Ella Fitzgerald and Karen Carpenter are two of the greatest voices to ever live.

1,000 thanks !

the VOICE enough said

Can it get any better than this, WOW.

BEAUTIFUL

She has the most beautiful perfect voice I have ever heard. Her talent was amazing.

Have you heard another voice like that? Didn't think so. Her voice was the most acoustically perfect instrument ever.

She just is ... the best!

So true! When KD Lang says that she was inspired by Karen Carpenter, then you know that
Karen is a singer's singer. wow.

wonderful!!!!

karen voice was magical, speechless.

This video is incredible. Karen and Ella are the greatest voices ever

She has a very beautiful voice. It is very natural and not artificial.

They were the most peaceful singers the world had ever seen.

My heart aches everytime I hear that beautiful voice. If there is a God, I suppose I couldn't blame
him/her for wanting it in heaven.

I've thought for the last 25 years that she has the best female voice ever in popular music...i haven't
changed my mind.

Karen you broke my heart the day died....there is no one replace you...

Fantastic.

Excellent.. She is the best female singer ever! To me, at least!

there will never be one like her.
and I wonder why this was happening to her?
And again there is no answer.
but for that special moment in time, there are those of us
that got to be here and listen, when she was here.
And all I can do is listen, and feel the deep passion
she brought to my heart.

On February 4, 1983, the world lost one of the most beautiful voices ever.
