Charles Wright Pens First In Series of Autobiographies UP FROM WHERE WE'VE COMECharles Wright Pens First In Series of Autobiographies UP FROM WHERE WE'VE COME
by BWW News Desk - Sep 23, 2015

While fans of Soul Music great Charles Wright are accustomed to hearing the singer/songwriter/guitarist shout 'Express Yourself' on oldies radio, in movies and dozens of television commercials, the multi-talented messenger has taken up his pen to complete the first in a planned series of autobiographies that detail his profound life story as a southern Black man that miraculously brought himself from poverty to prosperity.
