Carolyn Franklin - Dad

Pictured: Aretha on left with father and sister Carolyn

Here is the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin's baby sister Carolyn Franklin. I had to dig in my "Dusties" bin to share with everyone. This was one from one of Carolyn Franklin's underrated and often overlooked albums. She didn't have the voice of big Sister of Aretha but she can hold her own.

Carolyn Franklin was also an excellent writer. Writing such Soul gems and hits such as "Angel" and "Ain't No Way" for Aretha. Here is Carolyn Franklin singing to her dad the late great minister, Rev. C.L Franklin. Carolyn Franklin passed in 1988. Do yourself a favor and listen to some Carolyn Franklin.
