Showtune Sunday: When Karen Carpenter joined Ella Fitzgerald for a medley of love songs


Have not seen this in years but it is a gem. In 1980, ABC aired The Carpenters: Music, Music, Music with guest stars such as Ella Fitzgerald, John Davidson and Nelson Riddle and his orchestra. To me, the absolute highlight is this medley of love songs by Karen Carpenter and Ella. At one point while Karen is soaring during Someone to Watch Over Me, Ella says “so pretty.” It was The Carpenters last TV special as Karen would be dead less than three years later.
