Betty Wright

Betty Wright

Real Name:
Bessie Regina Norris
Soul singer and songwriter, born 21 December 1953 in Miami, Florida.
Her best known song is the million-selling " Clean Up Woman", which was written by TK producers/writers Clarence Reid and Willie Clarke, in 1971, when she was 17. Another hit, "Tonight Is The Night" was originally released in 1974, but became a bigger hit in 1993 when it was released again after the success of "Knockin' Boots" by Candyman, which sampled the song.
Betty Wright founded Ms.B Records in the mid-1980's, producing a gold album on her own label.
