It's been a longtime coming but I've finally got around to inducting the dynamic and vocally gifted Martha Wash into the Diva Hall of Fame.  With her drama-filled soprano, Martha came to fame in the late 70s as part of the duo Two Tons O' Fun.  Along with Izora Armstead, the ladies were the backup singers for the other "Queen of Disco" Sylvester.

In 1982, the duo's name changed to The Weather Girls and they went on to record the biggest song of their career "It's Raining Men," a song passed over by Barbara Streisand for her "Wet" album.  To this day, the early 80s disco song is considered iconic and a classic by all standards.

After the duo split in 1985, Martha transitioned into house music and lent her voice to several massive hits by Black Box and C+C Music Factory.  As a solo artist, she continued to rack up several more #1 Billboard club hits like "Give It to You" and "Catch the Light."

She continues to perform today and has had more recent #1 club hits (Keep Your Body Working, I'm Not Coming Down) performing with legendary DJ Tony Moran, the latter taken from her recent solo album "Something Good."

Martha is a legend, an icon. an ally of the gay community, and a true goddess with an amazing voice.  It's for these reasons and more that Party Favorz honors Miss Martha Wash by inducting her into the Diva Hall of Fame.  XOXOXO

Party Favorz is a series of commercial and underground club mixes that I started making for friends in 1999. In 2007, at the urging of friends, I decided to move everything online and the Party Favorz blog was born. Whether you’re gay, straight, black, white, pink or purple, Party Favorz has no boundaries and everyone IS welcome here. Comments and suggestions are always appreciated; in fact, they are encouraged. Always remember that despite the name tag, Party Favorz DOES NOT promote nor endorse the use of illegal substances. Frankly, house music is the only drug your body needs to have a good time.
