Southern Soul Sunday 5
It was probably a good career move for Bessie Regina Norris to opt for the stage name Betty Wright.
Born in Miami she is best known for Clean Up Woman recorded when she was 17 and has been performing for close to three decades, starting as a child prodigy.
She probably had the bulk of her hits in the 70s on the Alston label although she has enjoyed a resurgence in the 2000s,
I have just discovered that she was part of the production team for Joss Stone's Mind, Body and Soul album - every day is a school day!
