Remembering Nancy Wilson 1937 - 2018



Singer Nancy Wilson, who died Thursday at age 81, recorded more than 70 albums and won three Grammy Awards during her long career, including two for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2005 and 2007. And she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1990.

Below I've selected some videos to celebrate her life and career.

She appeared on ABC's The Hollywood Palace on January 4, 1964 (at 37:08), and November 14, 1964.




Below are three of my favorite songs from her 1966 album, From Broadway with Love - "I Had a Ball", "Hello, Dolly!" and "I've Got Your Number".





She performed "Satin Doll" in a 1966 television appearance.



She played a Las Vegas lounge singer on NBC's I Spy on September 21, 1966.



She appeared on NBC's The Andy Williams Show on October 9, 1966.



She appeared on CBS's The Danny Kaye Show on November 30, 1966.



She appeared on CBS's The Carol Burnett Show with Lucille Ball and Eddie Albert on November 4, 1968.



She appeared on CBS's The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, but CBS refused to air the episode on April 13, 1969, because of a satirical sermon by comedian David Steinberg.



She played a singer with a heroin addiction on CBS's Hawaii Five-O on September 23, 1970.




She appeared on Soul Train on November 16, 1974.



She and Carl Anderson made a music video of their 1987 single, "Forbidden Lover".



She appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show in 1990 (after Wilson discovered Hall in 1979 while he was performing his comedy act in a Chicago club, she hired him as her opening act).





She played the mother of comedian Sinbad on his 1993-94 Fox sitcom, The Sinbad Show.



She appeared on the ABC special, Quincy Jones--The First 50 Years, on April 11, 1998.
