Karen Carpenter was a well-known American vocalist who was most known for being a member of the Carpenters, a successful soft rock band. In the 1970s, she and her brother, Richard Carpenter, created the band and were immediately quite famous with their calming music. Karen was not only a brilliant vocalist, but she was also the drummer in their band, earning accolades from both contemporary musicians and her contemporaries. Karen, a contralto performer, was also well-known in the music world. The Carpenters began touring and performing live shows in the late 1960s, but it was not until the 1970s that they achieved financial success and reputation. Karen began her career as a drummer, but as her career progressed, she began to take on the position of lead vocalist as well. Her drumming became constrained as a result of her burgeoning fame as a vocalist, as it was relegated to just live appearances. Karen had an eating issue, which was a sickness that few people were aware of at the time. She died as a result of heart failure caused by her eating problem.
