Carolyn Ann Franklin (May 13, 1944 - April 25, 1988) was an
American singer and songwriter and the baby sister of musician
Aretha Franklin and daughter of prominent preacher C. L. Franklin.
Franklin was born in Memphis to Barbara (n e Siggers) and C. L.
Franklin. The youngest of six of C. L.'s children, she was moved to
Buffalo following her birth. By two, her family had settled at
Detroit where she would begin singing at her father's New Bethel
Baptist Church. Inspired by her sisters' successes in the secular
music field in the early 1960s, Carolyn joined Erma and Aretha into
a secular recording career, first recording in 1963. Though, like
Erma, her modest success in the industry wasn't matched by Aretha's
later blockbuster breakthrough in the late 1960s.
