Long ago and oh so far away . . . the world fell in love with the
Carpenters and their era-defining repertoire of songs.
“We’ve Only Just Begun: Carpenters Remembered” is the definitive
show celebrating those songs and one of the most successful recording
acts of all time.
Karen and Richard sold over a hundred million records in just over
a decade and still hold the record for the most consecutive top-ten
singles. The dynamic combination of Karen’s voice and Richard’s
compositions and arrangements created Grammy winning magic
and won them a worldwide legion of loyal fans.
Michelle Berting Brett takes center stage accompanied by her
7-piece band of versatile Nashville musicians directed by Harry
Sharpe. Sharpe and the band have worked with popular music icons
including: Donna Summer, Wynonna Judd, Bruce Hornsby, Collin Raye, The Monkees, Bobby Caldwell, Tanya Tucker, John Michael Montgomery, and Michael McDonald.
“We’ve Only Just Begun: Carpenters Remembered” re-creates their original sound. In addition Berting Brett shares stories culled
from extensive research and interviews with those who knew Karen and Richard personally and professionally. The result is a
family show and an intimate behind the scenes profile of the pop music phenomenon that defined an era.
The concert show is available in a 90 minute or two-act format and is jam-packed with back-to-back pop music classics that
include: For All We Know, Goodbye to Love, Hurting Each Other, Please Mr. Postman, Rainy Days and Mondays, Superstar,
There’s a Kind of Hush, (They Long to Be) Close to You, Top of the World, We’ve Only Just Begun, Yesterday Once More, and
