About Jackie Wilson
Jack Leroy Wilson Jr., better known by his stage name Jackie Wilson, earned his first claim to fame through his membership of the 1950s vocal group, Billy Ward and his Dominoes.
He launched a solo career in 1957 and went on to find success with top 10-charting singles such as “Lonely Teardrops”, “Night” and “Alone at Last” amongst others.
He is remembered for his eclectic performances, incorporating R&B, soul and pop instead of limiting himself to one. He was given the nickname “Mr Excitement” as a result.
At 17, he was forced to marry his pregnant girlfriend, Freda Hood. They divorced 14 years later because of his infidelity – they had four children. His second wife was Harlean Harris, a model.
He is an inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, R&B Music Hall of Fame and Hollywood Walk of Fame.
He died aged 49 on 21 January 1984 from pneumonia complications.
