Richard Carpenter and Amy Grant

I used to work across the hall from someone who worked in Amy Grant's office for a long time and was well connected to the music industry. The two of us had a mutual love for the Carpenters, and she told me Amy was influenced by Karen Carpenter's voice and enjoyed her Christmas music especially.

A&M promotions guy Jon Konjoyan told me once that he was at Amy's house for a promotional BBQ. Said she was one of the nicest people he'd ever met.

If that photo’s from 87, I wonder if there could be an unused duet from Richard’s “Time” album in the vault that Amy sang on?
