I'd like to know what singer Michelle Wright is doing. I thought her song Take It Like A Man was great.

The Canadian songstress has a new album out, her first in six years, called Shut Up and Kiss Me. She also married Marco Convertino this spring and traveled to Zambia to film a television special for World Vision. Born in Ontario, Wright excelled in sports and aspired to compete in the Olympics when she was younger. Music was always an interest, too—her parents were country music performers and she used to tag along on their gigs. She started singing professionally herself and eventually was noticed by record label executives in Nashville, Tenn. Take It Like A Man became a Top 10 hit, helping her to win the Academy of Country Music Top New Female Vocalist award in 1992. Wright and her husband live in Nashville.
