, July 7 (UPI) -- Motown's Syreeta Wright, who sang "With You I'm Born Again" with Billy Preston, has died at age 58, Billboard.com reported Wednesday.
Wright, the former wife of Stevie Wonder, died Monday after a long battle with cancer, Billboard said. Other details were not immediately available.
The singer/songwriter recorded six albums for Motown, the most notable being the first two produced by former husband Stevie Wonder.
Born Rita Wright in Pittsburgh, Syreeta was working in the '60s as a Motown secretary when she was enlisted as a backup singer.
Wright married Wonder in 1970 but the union lasted only two years. Their professional collaboration as songwriters, however, continued bringing such hits as "If You Really Love Me," "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" and the Spinners' "It's a Shame."
