Betty Wright Husband and Kids

Betty married her husband King Sporty, in 1985. They have 5 children: Chaka Azuri, Asha Wright, Patrice Parker, Patrick Parker, and Aisha McCray. Sadly, on Christmas Day 2005, Wright’s family was struck by tragedy when her son Patrick Parker was shot dead at a holiday party in the Opa-Laka community in South Florida. Therefore, he was just 21 years old then. No arrests were ever made in the killing.

Further, Wright recorded the song, “Dry Well,” as a tribute to her son. In 2012, Wright performed the song at a rally in support of the arrest of George Zimmerman. She said at the time, via Reuters,

“And if I can lend a celebrity voice to it, because when my son died, the way I got through it was through the power of family and the power of prayer. And I began to write it out, as I have always done the pain in my life.”

Furthermore, Wright told the Sun-Sentinel in a 1986 interview that she once refused a $1 million offer to perform in South Africa. She refused as a means of protecting the country’s apartheid regime.
