Mindi Carpenter, Karen Captenter, Richard Carpenter, Sarah Brightman, Renee Fleming, Johnny Depp,and Ellen Degeneres

Mindi Carpenter


Mindi Carpenter has an interesting voice. It's  not delicate. She sings songs that her aunt (and legal first-cousin -once-removed) Karen Carpenter made famous.

Her father, Richard Carpenter, is not a dork. He pens arrangements so that Mindi can sing the songs that her father and her late aunt Karen recorded and performed in the seventies and early eighties. Her father may not have deliberately set her up for failure, but some people do that to their offspring.

Mindi doesn't sing operatic works. I don't know why. I doubt that she even owns Soprano Solos Book I.

Sarah Brightman does sing operatic works. So does Renee Fleming.

Johnny Depp doesn't usually sing operatic works.

Ellen DeGeneres does not sing operatic works. I'm not sure if she sing at all. She dances, and she has a television show.

To anyone who reads this blog occasionally, I'm not under the influence of any controlled substances. I'm just seeing what happens if I post something about the people about whom I wrote.

  1. I think Ellen is funny and genuine. On a somewhat unrelated note, it was bizarre beyond belief when Anne Heche showed up at some house in the sticks in central California and has a semi-psychotic fuge where she borrowed someone's robe and slippers and made hersel at home in the person's house.

    1. I think Ellen keeps at things whereas other people totally don't seem to do anything like it. I know Depp does, too, but lots of people are jealous of him.
