Martha Wash

An exuberant singer with a huge voice and booming, declarative sound, Martha Wash originally teamed with Izora Armstead. They were known as Two Tons o' Fun when they backed Sylvester and later recorded for Fantasy. They changed their name to the Weather Girls and recorded for Columbia. Wash then began doing session work as a solo singer. She was in the midst of a big flap in the early '90s, as she claimed that the C&C Music Factory didn't credit her for vocals on its huge hit "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)." It was Wash's rich, shattering voice that turned "Everybody Everybody" into a smash for Black Box, but she wasn't featured in the video, something else that didn't make her very happy. Wash signed with BMG in 1991. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

I saw Martha Wash live at a club in Atlantic City about 15 years ago and I still remember it. The tracks were pre-recorded but her vocals were not. She blew the roof off the dump! The energy in the club was like nothing i had ever experienced before. I have been a fan ever since. What a voice, what a talent.

What happened to her?

It is so great to hear fun music, with great lyrics, an incredible voice and a positive message, that you can dance to as well. What more can you ask for?

I enjoy pretty much every song I have ever heard her sing! I hope to hear much more music from her!

Martha Wash is definitely an artist who although critically acclaimed, deserves so much more recognition for being one of the greatest vocalists alive today. Her moving vocals can go from a delicate whisper to a powerful wail in one line, and can easily put today's so-called divas to shame. We should all be grateful for the gift that is Martha Wash- a voice that remains unparalleled in music today.

her remixes were the bomb in the clubs not enough credit is due for this artist with a massive voice

If she is ever in your city, pay top dollar to she this girl. Have seen with and without the legendary Sylvester. God, I miss him. But Martha is pure dynamite by herself. Both Sylvester and Izora RHODES died far too soon.
