Since her 1988 debut CD on Savannah Records, Do Right By Me, Michelle Wright has been drawing rave reviews for her expressive voice and her distinctive style. Over the ensuing twenty‐four years, she has sold nearly two million albums in the United States and Canada and enjoys an international career, one that has seen her grace concert stages across North America and appear in Europe, Africa, South America, Australia and Asia. Michelle has amassed a total of twenty‐five Top Ten radio hits in her homeland of Canada and walked to podiums in music centers like Los Angeles and Toronto to accept more than forty major awards. She is the first Canadian‐born artist in the modern era of country music to have a Top Ten hit in America (Take It Like A Man, 1992) and a Number One video on CMT‐USA (Take It Like A Man, 1992), and to win a major U.S. music industry award (Academy of Country Music Top New Female Artist, 1993). In September, 2011, Michelle was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.
Miguelina Martizez was so afraid of her husband that she'd gone to the country's courts 18 times to ask for a restraining order. In desperation, she even made a video and posted it on YouTube. But the justice system in the DR is slow to protect women, often tragically so. It failed the 31-year-old mother and her four young children, and her husband stabbed her more than two dozen times.
