Carolyn Crawford is from Detroit, Michigan. In the early sixties, Motown ran a local contest for local artists. The winner got a three single deal with the company. Carolyn Crawford was a winner of that contest in 1963 or 1964 (whoever else won, I'll leave to others). She did "My Smile is Just a Frown", "When Someone's Good to You", and "Forget About Me" as the lead 3 singles. Never receiving the attention or promotion of larger acts, Crawford left Motown in 1965. She briefly returned to music as a background vocalist and occasional producer of minor disco hits in the 1970s.
