Courtesy of Henry Stone Music, starting today the R&B classic “Shoorah! Shoorah!” will be featured in a global TV campaign for Topgolf. Written by the legendary Allen Toussaint and recorded in 1974 by Grammy Award-winning R&B singer Betty Wright, “Shoorah Shoorah” is a bit of a sleeper hit having initially been a huge success overseas. The song has been recently licensed for the HBO series “Divorce” starring Sarah Jessica Parker as well as an episode of “A League Of Their Own” on Amazon Prime.
Best known for her 1971 hit single “Clean Up Woman”, Betty Wright is widely sampled by major artists including Beyoncé, Chance The Rapper, Mary J Blige, Sublime and most notably in Color Me Badd’s double platinum hit “I Wanna Sex You Up”. While not a household name, Betty has secured a legacy as a venerable and hugely influential artist.
