Vanessa Carlton is not a name you hear nowadays, but we can guarantee that a majority of women, and most likely men, in their 20s and 30s know every single word to the American pop singer's debut single.

But after all the love for "A Thousand Miles" died down, we became seriously worried that Vanessa just settled for home bound or got lost in the crowd. I mean, it's all in the lyrics, or are we just looking into it too much? The singer has a lot of explaining to do...

When the song was released in 2001, we thought this meant good things for the singer. It reached top five on the Billboard Hot 100 the next year, and her debut album Be Not Nobody was certified platinum.

Some people loved the song and some hated it, but we can all agree that all the covers and renditions of the song were just as incredible as the music video itself. Vanessa traveling the world and playing the piano will definitely stand the test of time.

More notably, Terry Crews's lip sync of the song garnered a lot of attention in the 2004 comedy film White Chicks. It's also been covered countless times on singing competition TV series.

Thirteen years later, Vanessa is still making music, but why has no one heard from her? Was she just a one-hit wonder?
