Betty Wright (born December 21, 1953, in Miami, Florida) is a soul and R&B singer, who influenced a generation of female singer-songwriters and also influenced the world of hip hop, who sampled some of her more famous material.
Born singing gospel with the family group, the Echoes of Joy, Wright began switching to R&B music in 1965 when she was only 11. In 1968, she released her first album, My First Time Around, at the age of 15, and scored her first hit, “Girls Can’t Do What Guys Can Do”.

The song, “Clean Up Woman”, became a Top 5 pop and R&B hit, and would later influence a remix of Mary J.
