Black History: Special Delivery!!
Iconic vocalist Nancy Wilson died on December 13, 3018 at the age of 81. Her career spanned five decades. Well known known hits included, “Love Won’t Let Me Wait”, “If I Had My Way”, and “How Glad I Am”. Wilson was born in Chilcothe, OH and began singing as a young child. She retired in 2011. Many don’t know that Wilson was active in the Civil Rights Movement and that she participated in the Selma to Montgomery march in 1965. Suprisingly she did not consider herself to be a traditional jazz singer; but rather an “interpreter” of lyrics she sang. She was the epitome of style and grace. It was said of Wilson that she, “turned songs into to stories”……and that she did!! May she rest well.
