Jack Leroy "Jackie" Wilson, Jr.
(June 9, 1934 – January 21, 1984)

Wilson was important in the transition of rhythm and blues into soul. He was
considered  one of the most dynamic and influential singers and performers
in R&B and rock history. Gaining fame in his early years as a member of the
R&B vocal group Billy Ward and His Dominoes, he went solo in 1957 and
recorded over 50 hit singles that spanned R&B, pop, soul, doo-wop and
easy listening. During a 1975 benefit concert, he collapsed on-stage from
a heart attack and subsequently fell into a coma that persisted for nearly
nine years until his death in 1984 at age 49. By this time, he had become
one of the most influential artists of his generation.
