Following Melanie Thornton's death in a plane crash in 2001, German hit-producer Frank Farian signed Wright as the new lead singer for La Bouche, but this stint was rather unsuccessful, having resulted in a low-charting hit single, All I Want.
After touring with La Bouche, Wright started writing with Mary and Chris Applegate who wrote Jennifer Rush's "Power of love" later covered and popularized by Céline Dion. Subsequently, she moved on from dance-oriented music to neo-soul and jazz.
