Breaking: Betty Wright, Iconic Soul Singer, Dead At 66

Published: Sunday 10th May 2020 by Sam

In breaking news, it’s being reported that legendary R&B/Soul singer Betty Wright has died – aged 66.

Full story below…

Via TMZ:

Wright’s cause of death was not announced when her niece confirmed the passing. Something was clearly wrong though because 2 days ago, Chaka Khan made a plea … “Calling all my #PrayWarriors. My beloved sister, Betty Wright @MsBettyWright, is now in need of all your prayers.”

Wright, whom some in the music industry called one of the most underrated singers of her time, was recently honored on TV One’s, “Unsung.”

Betty recorded so many songs, including her 1971 hit, “Clean Up Woman. She was only 18 when the song was released, and it turned out to be her biggest song ever. Other hits included “Let Me Be Your Lovermaker,” “Shoorah Shoorah,” “Tonight is the Night,” and “Where is the Love.”

Our thoughts are with her family.

    Lawd 2020 ain’t taking no prisoners. I’m tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiied of people passing at this point. Betty was a trailblazing black woman who stood her ground and had the career she wanted to have. Betty had her OWN record label back in the 80’s and released her biggest album on her OWN label MOTHER WIT. I was just jamming to her song UR A H** (AND YOU DON’T KNOW). Betty had a tell it like it is attitude and she was such a beautiful spirit. If you haven’t check out her UNSUNG on TVONE. “…Don’t blame Mr. Charlie…Mr. Charlie is just a man and he’s doing the best he can”.
