Carolyn Crawford

US-born soul singer Carolyn Crawford won a 1963 talent contest staged by radio station WCHB in Detroit, the prize being a contract with the city’s biggest label, Motown Records. Her debut single, ‘Forget About Me’, proved unsuccessful, but she had a minor US hit in 1964 with Smokey Robinson’s ‘My Smile Is Just A Frown (Turned Upside Down)’. Her third release, ‘When Someone’s Good To You’, flopped in the USA, but became a cult record among British soul fans. Crawford left Motown shortly afterwards, working as a backing vocalist and session singer until joining the Detroit soul group Chapter 8 in 1975. She left that group a year later, to be replaced by Anita Baker, and after a spell with the vocal trio Hodges, James & Smith, she relaunched her solo career in 1979, registering another minor hit with ‘Coming On Strong’ on Mercury. After several years with Chapter 8 she recorded for Ian Levine’s Motor City label, releasing Heartaches.

Grew up with Carolyn Crawford in Detroit. We were in the youth gospel choir at New St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church. She won a local talent contest and went on and signed with Motown. Later on she had a big hit with Bohannon on the dance tune Get on Up and Dance. Love ya Bonnie (lol) miss you.

Carolyn Crawford is another one of the female artists Motown overlooked; as was: Florence Ballard, Mary Wells, Kim Weston, & a slew of other female singers,who were just as talented or more so, than Diana, but were not given the same opportunitie s . I am very familiar her because I grew up in Detroit & also went to Greusel Jr. High School with Carolyn. I remember the talent contest she won to get started at Motown. I wish she would reappear her voice is to great to be silent.
