Karen Carpenter (1950–1983) was a famous American singer, best known as a part of the popular soft rock band ‘The Carpenters’. She, along with her brother, Richard Carpenter, had formed the band and soon become very successful with their soothing music in the 1970s.

Not only was she a fantastic singer, Karen was also the drummer of their band, attracting much praise from contemporary musicians as well as from her peers. Karen, a contralto vocalist, was also critically acclaimed in her music career.

The Carpenters had started doing tours and live performances in the late 1960s but their commercial success and fame came in the 1970s. In the initial stages of her career, Karen used to be more of a drummer but later on she took the role of the lead vocalist as well. Owing to her rising career as a singer, her drumming became limited as it got restricted to live performances only.

Karen suffered from an eating disorder, a disease people were not much aware about during that time. She eventually died of heart failure brought about by her eating disorder.
