Wilson, Jackie Bands and Artists Music
Wilson (1934-1984) was a soul singer known as "Mr. Entertainment". He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and is probably best known for his singles "Reet Petite" from 1956, "Lonely Teardrops" from 1959, and "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher" from 1967. After collapsing onstage in 1975, he remained in a coma until his death over eight years later. "Jackie Wilson was one of the most important agents of black pop's transition from R&B into soul. In terms of vocal power (especially in the upper register), few could outdo him; he was also an electrifying on-stage showman." -- All Music Guide
