Singer Norma Jean Wright recorded both under her own name and as Norma Jean — not to be confused with the same-named country singer.The Elyria, OH, native first came to fame as a vocalist with Chic. Chic leaders Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards produced her debut single “Saturday” in summer 1978. Her self-titled LP, produced by Rodgers and Edwards, was released by Bearsville Records in July 1978. The follow-ups were a cover of Sam Cooke’s “Having a Party” and the title track single from her next LP, High Society, from late 1979.
