99 1/2 Carol Lynn Townes from Breakin'

Carol Lynn Townes has released records as part of a group and as a solo artist.  But she is really only well-known for one.  Her remake of Alton, McClain & Destiny's 99 1/2 in 1982 which was included on the soundtrack for Breakin' and became a smash.  Single-handedly practically giving an anthem to the sound of electro.  99 1/2 for you

Believe in the Beat was included in the soundtrack for Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo but it didn't prove to be as big a smash as 99 1/2.

Her discography included 2 albums and about ten singles.
