Michelle Berting Brett has come a long way since she started her tribute show of Karen Carpenter five years ago in a Cabaret in Toronto. It started out small five years ago and has now grown to a 90 minute production accompanied by her seven piece band of Nashville musicians.

“We’ve Only Just Begun” is a concert that celebrates the music of one of the most successful recording acts of Karen and Richard Carpenter, who sold over 100 million records. Michelle Berting Brett shares stories of the Carpenters as she sings many of their hit songs that earned them many Grammys.

Michelle is a gifted vocalist that puts her heart, memories and emotions into each song, along with a lot of data and stories about the Carpenters. Michelle is a natural on stage and puts the audience at ease as she engages them with her beautiful voice that sounds just like Karen Carpenter. The seven piece band was fabulous and amazing.

This was a special event that took everyone back with the magical songs that included: Close to you, top of the World, For All We Know, Please Mr. Postman, There’s a Kind of Hush, Rainy Days and Mondays, Yesterday Once More and We’ve Only Just Begun.

Mark Brett produced this wonderful tribute show to highlight his talented wife Michelle Brett who actually does sound like Karen Carpenter. It was a joy to meet Michelle and Mark after the show at a meet and greet where the fans lined up to take pictures and talk with them.
