The first time Carmelita Pittman met Charles Wright was when she ventured down Sunset Boulevard over 40 years ago. He hailed her and later saw her perform at Bernie Hamilton’s Cafe named Citadel d’ Haiti. At that time she was so flattered that a celebrity of his stature would compliment her singing and guitar playing.

Despite their lack of support, she actually recorded some original music which was produced by my husband Jerry Pittman (who I met at a later time) that made the R&B charts with the late “Godfather of Soul” James Brown. However, never would I have imagined in a million years that I would be writing an article about Charles Wright. To read the complete edition,click here.
