Karen Carpenter Tribute

Karen Carpenter Tribute act

A young lady who possesses the voice of the late and great Karen Carpenter. This tribute to Karen Carpenter is true to character. She has the same unique quality in her natural voice that Karen is to always be remembered for.

Just like Karen, Katy is currently the same age as when the legend was in the peak of her career. At the age of 27, Katy Ellis possesses the young and innocent look of Karen Carpenter but also attains a ‘Voice of an angel’. Most people forget that Karen Carpenter tragically passed away at the young age of 32.

Since Katy has been performing independently around the United Kingdom, the consistent comments regarding the similarities in voice and appearance of herself and Karen Carpenter. This is a show that promises to bring Karen Carpenter back for audiences and honour her work, life and an artiste who is missed! This is not just a show, this is an experience into yesterday, once more.

Katy just like Karen, has been involved in music since the age of seven. Professional training for Katy included weekly singing and piano lessons, this has since progressed into a full career in music. She trained in musical theatre at the Italia Conti Academy on their prestigious musical theatre course in London. After completing that Katy went onto perform in various West End musicals and spent four years as a production singer onboard various cruise lines.

Katy naturally has the same smooth, low, velvety tones that Karen became world renowned for – she had a mystery to her voice that one cannot be taught. Karen Carpenter made an enormous impact to the music industry with her voice and overall various musical talents plus her natural charisma and not forgetting the family connection alongside her brother Richard. The music of the Carpenters made a lot of people happy…. Katy Ellis wishes to continue to do this.

Katy is very true to character throughout the show, this is including a fantastic American accent! Echoing past comments, watching her would really have you believing that you were back in time watching the real Karen Carpenter. Katy’s sweet, innocent look and voice in company with both authentic and vintage replica costumes! The entire show will transport you back in time to the 1970’s back to when Karen was on the top of the world!
