One of Motown's more underappreciated female vocalists, Syreeta is best known for her association with Stevie Wonder during his creative peak in the '70s. Born Rita Wright in Pittsburgh, Syreeta was raised mostly in Detroit, and started out at Motown as a secretary who did session vocals on the side -- much like Martha Reeves. As Rita Wright, she recorded her debut single, the Ashford & Simpson composition "I Can't Give Back the Love I Feel for You," in 1967. She met Stevie Wonder the following year, and the two eventually became songwriting collaborators; the first fruit borne of their partnership was the 1970 smash "Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)," and she also worked on some of the material for Where I'm Coming From, including the hit "If You Really Love Me." Their relationship turned romantic as well, and the two were married in September 1970; it lasted only a year and a half, partly because Wonder was so committed to music, but the two remained friends. In fact, Wonder assisted on Syreeta's eponymous 1972 debut album, producing and contributing material like the jazzy "Black Maybe." 1974's Stevie Wonder Presents Syreeta was the high point of her career, featuring R&B-chart hits like "Spinnin' and Spinnin'" and "Your Kiss Is Sweet." Another collaboration, the single "Harmour Love," became a hit in 1975, but the release of accompanying album One to One was delayed until 1977, the same year an album of duets with G.C. Cameron, Rich Love, Poor Love, appeared.
