Karen Carpenter auditioned for the girl spot in Kenny Rogers group First Edition!
Must be late 1960`ties - 1968-69.
They needed a new girl lead singer after Thelma Camacho was fired, had miss to many rehearsals and performances.
Karen was overlooked and singer then was Mary Arnold, who later married Roger "King of the road" Miller.
Actor John Wayne WANTED group Carpenters singer KAREN CARPENTER to audition as the young frontier girl Mattie Ross in film True Grit.
Kim Darby got the role!
