Jazz singer Nancy Wilson, a three-time Grammy Award-winner, was born on February 20, 1937, in Chillicothe, Ohio to iron-worker Olden Wilson and the former Lillian Ryan, who worked as a domestic servant. Nancy was the first of six children. Her father's love of music and the records he played at home were a huge influence on Nancy as a young girl. She already knew she would be a singer by the time she was four years old and developed her talent by singing in the church choir.Nancy Wilson won her first Grammy in 1964, for best R&B recording for her LP "How Glad I Am." Nancy continued recording into the 21st Century, winning Best Jazz Vocal Grammy Awards for her albums "R.S.V.P. (Rare Songs, Very Personal)" (2005) and "Turned to Blue" (2007). She retired from live performance in 2011. Wilson passed away surrounded by her loving family on December 13th, 2018.About Veronique Musique:Veronique is the musical embodiment of a Movement. Through the familiar seduction in her voice to her signature vocal/lyrical arrangement and with her distinctive "Live" sets, she is the spokeswoman for a global alliance who aims to reclaim beautiful music for beautiful people worldwide. This beauty is not defined by over-saturated images of pop-media culture. Rather, it is the amalgamation of global culture, independent thought and creative spirit shared by adventure hungry hedonists with lust for life. Veronique, a Bethesda, MD native began her career early studying music with her father and singing in church. Her vocal/lyrical skills were honed with Detroit House Music legends Aaron-Carl (Wallshaker Music), Derwin Hall (UR), Malik Alston (Truth Manifest Records) and Delano Smith (Mix Mode Recordings).
