When Wendy Moten talks about her more than 20 years in the music industry, a few words come up over and over: growing, collaborating, learning. Lucky, fortunate.
A surprising juxtaposition emerges: one of pop music’s most powerful voices, who hopes that her legacy will be as a collaborator, open to creating great art.
It’s a refreshing perspective from a vocalist with Wendy’s resume. The Memphis-born, GRAMMY® nominated singer has earned a vast collection of professional credits in Contemporary, R&B, Jazz, Rock, and Country since launching her career with her self-titled debut record (EMI) in 1992. That album produced two Billboard charting singles, including the enduring ballad “Come In Out of the Rain” and the up-tempo dance hit “Step by Step.”
On the heels of that release, Wendy was chosen to open for Michael Bolton during his North American stadium tour and connected with fans worldwide through sold-out headlining performances at venues like the famed Budokan in Japan. In 1994, she recorded the GRAMMY ® nominated single “Whatever You Imagine,” from the animated film The Pagemaster starring Macaulay Culkin. Additional film soundtrack credits include 1993’s Mr. Wonderful starring Annabella Sciorra and Matt Dillon.
Julio Iglesias and Wendy Moten Wendy recorded two more albums for EMI: Time For Change, an international smash and European best-seller, with “Change Of Heart” and “Your Love Is All I Know;” and Life’s What You Make It, which showcased her versatility as an artist, vocalist, producer and songwriter.
