Betty Barton (born Betty Jean Champion; October 24, 1944), better known by the stage name Bettye Swann, is a retired American singer. She is best known for her 1967 hit song "Make Me Yours".
She was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, one of 14 children. She grew up in Arcadia, Louisiana, and moved to Los Angeles, California in 1963.
