The R&B artist known as Betty Wright was born Bessie Regina Norris in 1953 in Florida. The youngest in a large family, Betty began part of her sibling’s gospel group when she was still a preschooler, and she performed with her family until 1965, when she was only eleven year olds. At that time, Wright caught the attention of record labels, and she was signed to her first contract when she was only twelve.
Initially, Betty rose to local fame with the singles “Paralyzed” and “Thank You Baby,” before she released her debut album, My First Time Around, when she was only fourteen. But it was her song “Clean Up Woman,” released when she was seventeen, that reached into the top ten on the R&B charts and quickly became a crossover hit, reaching platinum status and launching Betty Wright’s career. A series of successful albums followed, including: I Love The Way You Love (1972), Hard to Stop (1973), This Time for Real (1977), Travelin’ in the Wright Circle (1979), Betty Wright (1981), Sevens (1986), Mother Wit (1988), Passion & Compassion (1990), and Fit for a King (2001.) The albums spawned the hit R&B singles: “Baby Sitter,” “Is It You, Girl?,” “It’s Hard to Stop (Doing Something When it’s Good to You),” “Let me Be Your Lovemaker,” “Secretary,” “Tonight is the Night,” “Shoorah! Shoorah!,” “Slip and Do It,” “You Can’t See for Lookin,” “Lovin’ Is Really My Game,” “Goodbye You Hello Him,” “She’s Older Now,” “No Pain, No Gain,” “From Pain to Joy,” “Keep Love New,” and “For Love Alone.”
Although Betty Wright has not released any new material in the last few years, she continues to perform and contribute to projects. She currently resides in her hometown of Miami, Florida.
