I booked this duo act for my Mums 60th Birthday and she loved them, we all did. Laurena portrays Karen with such warmth and compassion, and she sounds so much like the American songbird. This act is incredibly talented. If you want a wonderful, classy and professional act, for your event, then
I would highly recommend that you book "The Carpenters Tribute Story
