Jackie Wilson

Jack Leroy "Jackie" Wilson, Jr. was an African American soul singer-songwriter and performer. Known as a tenor with a four octave vocal range, he was nicknamed "Mr. Excitement", Wilson was important in the transition of rhythm and blues into soul. He was considered a master showman, and one of the most dynamic and influential singers and performers in R&B and rock 'n' roll history.
