Carl Carlton is an American R&B, soul, and funk singer and songwriter, best known for his hits Everlasting Love and Shes a Bad Mama Jama. Carlton was born in Detroit, Michigan, and began his career in the mid-1960s as Little Carl Carlton. This was a marketing ploy to capitalize on some vocal similarities to Stevie Wonder, who recorded under the name Little Stevie Wonder in the early 1960s. His first recordings were for Lando Records, for which he recorded some minor local hits, including So What and Dont You Need A Boy Like Me. In 1968, Carlton was signed by Don D. Robey to his new label, Back Beat Records. Shortly after signing with the label, Carlton relocated to Houston, Texas, to be closer to his new label. His first single with the label, Competition Aint Nothing became a huge hit on the UK northern soul scene after its release on the UK Action label. Carlton finally saw major success in the United States with a cover version of Robert Knights Everlasting Love. This song went to #6 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, and #11 on the Billboard R&B Charts in 1974.
