Only one performer has ever received the ultimate accolade – a glowing endorsement by none other than Richard Carpenter. Describing Wendy Roberts’ depiction on national TV as a “very accurate and a faithful portrayal”, Richard confessed to being “flattered” by the songstress’ depiction of his sister Karen’s velvet vocals. Star of theatre’s seminal revue production Tribute to the Carpenters, Wendy’s performances of chart-topping hits Top of the World, We’ve Only Just Begun, Goodbye to Love, Please Mr Postman, For All We Know and Only Yesterday were, at the time, critically acclaimed worldwide – performing here to full houses throughout the country culminating with a storming appearance at the London Palladium.
