Wendy Moten is the debut album by AmericanR&B singer Wendy Moten, released in 1992. It features the single "Come In Out of the Rain", which, although a minor hit on the US Billboard Hot 100, was an Adult Contemporary smash, peaking at number 5. It had similar success in the UK Singles Chart, where it peaked at number 8 when released in 1994. A second single from the album, "So Close to Love" also charted in the UK in 1994, peaking at number 35.
In a review for AllMusic, Steve Huey gave the album three out of five stars, saying that the album "displays a confident vocalist with a theatrical flair" and that "Moten is equally comfortable with urban R&B and smooth adult contemporary balladry, although her true affinity seems to be for the latter."
