In Memoriam: Nancy Wilson

Nancy Sue Wilson [b. February 20, 1937 – d. December 13, 2018)] was an American singer whose career spanned over five decades, from the mid–1950s until her retirement in the early–2010s. She is known for her jazz and Soul recordings. I’ve picked her tune, Sunshine [1979], as a shining example of Wilson’s vocal dexterity.
