My reflections and thoughts on Karen Carpenter.
Yesterday, I was watching "The Karen Carpenter"story on True Story Channel. It did not dawn on me until after I finished watching the story on one of my favorite singer's tragic life, that yesterday, February 4, 2005, was the twenty-second year anniverisary of her death.
If anyone saw this movie, it shows how Karen and Richard started their brother and sister duo The Carpenters, which their first song was "Close To You" and "We Only Just Begun" followed by "Super-Star.".
The one song that I remember requesting was Super-Star" back in 72.
The one song I can relate to the best is "Love Me For What I am". This song is great and I think most people who have a hard time accepting others should listen to.
The words hit true and many of us could benefit by learning to accept others as we want to be accepted as ourselves to others.
Karen died of aroexia nervosa on February 4, 1983 after taking so much tincture of Ipec that helps to induce vomiting it weakened her heart vowels and she collasped at her parent's home in California and they could not bring her back to life.
She died of heart failure on February 4, 1983 at the age of 32 years old.
She had an angelic voice and The Carpenters were one of my favorite sister and brother duos from 1970 to 1983 before she died so tragically.
The only time Karen appeared happy was when she married her ex, Bob Mackie, who was a real estate developer. Her controlling mother, Agnes and her dad, Harold, convinced her to divorce him two years after they were married.
Those were the days my friends. I thought they would never end. Yet they did the day that Karen Carpenter died.
