Marva Wright, a titan of the Nthe singer equally at ease with soul, gospel and R&B, died this morning, according to a report from WWL-TV. Wright was 62.
Though plagued with health problems in recent years, Wright continued to perform. Here she is, exhorting the crowd to "Let the Good Times Roll," in a performance in Lafayette Square in summer 2009.
Our best to Marva's family and many, many friends.
