Listen for the sounds of Paul Wright III in the movie "Made in America," starring Whoopi Goldberg and Ted Danson, which hits the movie houses today. (A review is on Page 20 of Gusto.)
Wright, 27, wrote and produced two songs for the movie's grand finale.
A graduate of Sweet Home Senior High School, where he was in the concert band and the jazz ensemble and a drum major for the marching band, and the University at Buffalo, Wright now lives in Nashville, Tenn. and is co-owner of Praise Records, a gospel label, and Praise Song Recording Studios.
He is the son of Maggie S. Wright of Williamsville, UB assistant dean of student affairs in the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and Paul Wright of Buffalo, a retired science teacher.
