Legendary singer ebq4stand musician Charles Wright shares his story of growing up in the racially-charged rural south of the 1940s in his autobiography, Up: From Where We’ve Come

Best known for the hit single Express Yourself, Charles Wright’s songs have been covered by countless artists throughout the decades. But before his rise to musical fame, Wright’s life was fraught with tribulation and tragedy.
