Dami Im to Release Carpenters Tribute Album

dami im - classic carpentersAustralia’s Dami Im is taking a break from original compositions as she prepares the release of a covers album dedicated exclusively to songs from U.S. group The Carpenters, one of the most successful adult contemporary outfits of the 1970s, selling over 100 million records worldwide. The band’s career ended in the early 1980s when lead singer Karen Carpenter died from complications of anorexia nervosa. Though tragic, it brought significant attention to the psychosomatic illness. Dami, who won the 5th season of Australia’s X-Factor, will be heading to Sweden to represent the land down under at this year’s Eurovision song contest with the final taking place May 14, 2016. Without a doubt, Dami Im has one of the most beautiful voices in the world. Album Classic Carpenters will be out April 22. Below is the MV for “(They Long to Be) Close to You”.
