And that belief was affirmed over the weekend with the death of another music legend, Betty Wright on May 10.
After the death of Hip Hop super producer and record executive Andre Harrell on May 7, and Rock and Roll pioneer and pop culture icon Little Richard on May 9, Wright was the third American music star to die in less than a week.
Wright stood out even during the transcendent musical era of the 1970’s as a sultry R&B and Soul singer.
Wright died from cancer at her home in Miami according to Billboard magazine.
In 2003, Wright co-produced Joss Stone’s The Soul Sessions, a collection of R&B songs from the 1960’s and 1970’s.
