Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. 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.
