Betty Wright US Soul Singer Dies Aged 66

Clean up Woman, After the Pain, Spend Some Time Together, Smother Me, keep Love New, Share your Love and countless others were songs that I found in record shops & Fairs from the early 80`s . I was resident at Kings on the Rye, Peckham, London on Fridays nights which was the perfect venue to play rare groove & 2 step music to which Betty had plenty of in her library. She had an amazing voice and many would try to hit her high notes such as the note in make me love the rain. 66 seems so young to be hearing of someone passing away but time waits for no one but to hear that Betty is gone, it was a mighty blow.
