Radio Facts is sad to report that legendary singer Nancy Wilson has died. She died on December 13, 2018 of Kidney cancer. She retired in 2011. Wilson died after a long illness.
Wilson was always the personification of class and elegance and sang music that defied a category. We will keep you posted on services and post more about her career.
Wilson did not want to be categorized as a singer and stood alone in a class by herself with smash singles such as “Guess Who I Saw Today” a song about a woman who catches her significant other having lunch and drinks with another woman.
Because of Wilson’s spectacular singing voice and sophisticated style, she was often underrated and there was never anyone else who even came close to her. She was influenced by other greats like Dinah Washington and Nat “King” Cole.
