Richard and Karen Carpenter’s musical journey began in 1965 when they first started singing and performing together. By 1968, they had solidified their partnership and officially adopted the name “The Carpenters.” Throughout the 1970s, this dynamic duo emerged as a musical powerhouse, enchanting audiences with their unforgettable hits.

Among their many successes, the songs “Close to You” and “We’ve Only Just Begun” stood out as certified gold singles, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of their listeners. These two timeless tracks found their home in the best-selling album “Close to You,” a musical gem that secured the 175th spot on Rolling Stone’s prestigious list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”

The Carpenters’ live performances were equally mesmerizing as they embarked on tours throughout the 1970s. Yet, behind their public success, the duo faced immense pressure as a performing band. Richard, struggling with drug addiction, decided to step away for a year in 1979 to confront his challenges. Simultaneously, Karen battled the demons of anorexia nervosa, a condition that cast a shadow over her life and career
