Biografia

Born in Detroit, Michigan on May
21, 1953, singer and songwriter Carl Carlton would get his start as a recording
artist while still a teenager under the name Little Carl Carlton, hoping to
capitalize on the popularity of Little Stevie Wonder. He enjoyed some local
success, but relocated to Houston after signing with the label Back Beat in
1968. He had his first hits on the R&B charts soon after with “Don’t
Walk Away”
and “Drop By My Place” in ’69 and ’70. He dropped “Little”
from his stage name, and scored his breakthrough after his 1974 track “Everlasting
Love”
had a radio-friendly disco beat added to it. The song became a smash,
hitting number 6 on the pop chart and number 11 on the R&B chart. The album
of the same name would spawn another R&B top 20 hit, “Smokin’ Room”.
A legal dispute over royalty payments kept him from releasing new material for
a few years, but his 1980 self-titled album included the funky “She’s a Bad
Mama Jama (She’s Built, She’s Stacked)”
, a number 2 R&B and number 22
pop hit, as well as the best-selling single of his career. Three more R&B
albums came out over the next fifteen years, but he transformed himself into a
gospel artist for 2010’s God Is Good.
