Betty Wright - "Tonight Is The Night"

"Tonight Is The Night" is the classic of all classics; it is sheer perfection!!!  It was a phenomenal cross over song - southern soul to r&B - and is still played on the radio today.  It was so popular that a group even sampled it a few years ago without her permission.  Congratulations to her for winning that lawsuit.  This song is so powerful that it's hard for me to describe.  I'm not even going to post the words because you all know them already.  Betty is still doing great things.  She recently joined forces with The Roots and released an album called "Betty Wright:  The Movie."  Go on with your bad self!!
