Quotes & Highlights

Watch the video for “It’s Raining Men” by Martha Wash and the Weather Girls.

Description

Martha 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.”
