Great singer
She will be missed

As I watched Edna's clips, I suddenly noticed just how talented and classy the female vocals were during the 70s. Too bad the days of yesteryears will never return. May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding guard the hearts and minds of all Edna's loving family members, treasured friends, and diehard fans. Heartfelt condolences from the Class of '69!


I was blessed to have the Honey Cone as part of my Teen years. Watching Ms. Wright on Soul Train was a delight. They were the best girl group with an outstanding lead singer. Vocally she had been doing a lot of background work for the who's who of popular music. Her vocals on Want Ads. Stickup and One Monkey are for fast dancing and we did dance a lot to those songs. But she was fierce as a vocalist with ballads to
THE DAY THAT I LOST YOU is one of the best songs ever made...

In loving memory of a very talented singer. We will love you and miss you always.

Your voice will be remembered.
