American singer–songwriter in the genres of gospel, R&B, soul, pop and jazz. Besides her own musical success, Franklin was best known as the daughter of prominent Detroit preacher and civil rights activist C. L. Franklin and the younger sister of American singer/musician Aretha Franklin.

In 1976, Franklin retired from the music industry and occasionally continued to sing with Aretha. Franklin appeared as one of Aretha's background singers in the 1980 movie The Blues Brothers and was a backing vocalist on Paul King's 1987 album Joy. Franklin died of breast cancer at Aretha's Scenic Court home in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan on 25 April 1988, aged 43.
