Bio

Martha Wash is a music legend, spanning genres from pop and dance to R&B, and is responsible for some of the most celebrated music to ever hit the airwaves. With a career lasting more than three decades and including two Grammy nominations, she is no stranger to No. 1 hits, as the voice behind tracks like "It's Raining Men," "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)," and "Carry On." Wash has truly done it all. She has performed for President and Mrs. Clinton at the White House and has appeared at international venues such as Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Moscow's Red Square, and many more. She's received the Keys to the City of Miami Beach , and both Washington, D.C., and San Francisco have declared Martha Wash Day in her honor.

Wash scored her first hit in the '80s with The Weather Girls (the former backup singers for soul singer Sylvester). "It's Raining Men" became a worldwide phenomenon, peaking at No. 2 on the U.K. Singles chart and No. 1 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart. The track continues to receive regular play in clubs and on dance radio stations to this day. After The Weather Girls disbanded, Wash continued to contribute her talents to various house and dance tracks, including singing lead vocals on the C+C Music Factory's smash hit "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)" (although she was never formally credited). Wash has also released two solo albums, Martha Wash (1993) and The Collection (1998). The first of these albums featured the third smash hit of Wash's career, "Carry On."

In the years since Wash first made her indelible mark on the industry, she's continued to release some of her most captivating music, perform worldwide, and work to call attention to causes closest to her heart, including autism and HIV and AIDS prevention. In 2004, she also started her own music label, Purple Rose Records, releasing the soulful and dance inspired tune "You Lift Me Up," which shot to Top 5 on the Billboard Dance Chart. In recent years, she has lent her talents to Jim Papoulis in his project Sounds of a Better World, Small Voices Calling, as well as to DJ Tony Moran, whose 2007 hit "Keep Your Body Working" featured Wash and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance chart. In 2011, she released a new single, "I've Got You," a breathtaking blend of pop and R&B that will engage and delight old fans and new crowds alike.
