Just days before the star’s passing, her friend/fellow songstress Chaka Khan solicited prayers.

“Calling all my #PrayWarriors. My beloved sister, Betty Wright @MsBettyWright, is now in need of all your prayers,” wrote Chaka.

Wright, who popularized the phrase “No pain, no gain” was dubbed “one of the most underrated singers of her time.” Her 1971 hit “Clean Up Woman” is well-known by lovers of Hip-Hop and soul, and was sampled for the remix of Mary J. Blige’s “Real Love.”
