Betty Wright is a soul singer from Miami who rose to attention in the 1970s for hits like "Tonight is the Night" and "Clean Up Woman." With a healthy dose of gospel, R&B and disco woven into her songs, she made a name for herself in the mid to late-1960s for not only her own releases on TK records, but for helping discover other artists like George and Gwen McCrae. As Wright transitioned in to the 1980s and 1990s, she signed with major label Epic records and went on to work with the forerunners of soul and pop including Grayson Hugh and Gloria Estefan. With a decades-long career under her belt, she continues to influence the torchbearers of contemporary R&B with releases like 2014's Living... Love... Lies.
