Two exciting new Carpenters releases are in the pipeline! The new book Carpenters: The Musical Legacy will be available on November 16, 2021 and can be ordered here. A big thanks to the authors and Richard Carpenter for their tremendous effort in compiling this book! Also, the new solo piano album Richard Carpenter's Piano Songbook is being released January 14, 2022, and is available for ordering here.
I am going to say that former "Glee Cast" member Lea Michele is a close second (1st runner up) who did a great job of doing the remake of The Carpenters "Merry Christmas Darling" back in 2010. What about you folks??
