Amy Renee Heidemann and Nick Noonan, aka Karmin, are proof that the couple the plays (music) together, stays together. Though they first broke through to the mainstream with their frothy hit "Brokenhearted," the engaged couple's love is going strong in real life. And this year, they're celebrating Valentine's season with their current tour and new single, "I Want It All," with a new album, "Pulses," to follow in late March.
