Born October 24th, 1944, in Shreveport, Louisiana as Betty Jean Champion. Although she never reached super-stardom, Bettye Swann had her fair share of hits during the late 1960's. Most famously recognized for her big hit "Make Me Yours". My favorite track by her and perhaps one of my favorite soul songs of all time is "(My Heart Is) Closed for the Season". Another great tune by Ms. Swann is her lovely rendition of my man Otis's "These Arms Of Mine".
The lady can sang. Trust.
