Derrell Wright sang his way into this world on March 12, 1968 along with his twin brother Derick Wright Sr. He was born in Harlem, New York to Albertha Wright and the late Noah A. Wright.
Derrell received an education at P.S 44, Wadleigh and Park West High School where he then graduated. Derrell made an outstanding amount of friends throughout those years whom not only remained friends but turned into family. Derrell furthered his education and went on to become an educator for 20 years at East End Child Care in New York City.
Derrell believed in living life to the fullest. He appreciated a good time with good people. He had a love for singing, traveling, and most of all eating good. He loved his family and cherished his friendships. Derrell lived life on his own terms with no regrets.
