Nancy Wilson, a three-time Grammy winning artist who called herself a “song stylist,” has died, her manager said.
She was 81.
Wilson passed away peacefully Thursday at her home after a long illness, her manager Devra Hall Levy said.
The vocalist from Chillicothe, Ohio, initially focused on R&B music but later excelled at jazz ballads and torch songs.
She made her debut with her 1961’s single “Guess Who I Saw Today.”
Her biggest hit came in 1964 with “(You Don’t Know) How Glad I Am,” which rose through the charts to the #11 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles and earned her a Grammy Award for best R&B recording.
