Jackie Wilson was, in my opinion, one of the best and polished performers of the 1950's-1960's. He had amazing vocal range, dynamic voice, commanded a stage presence, all with an oh so smooth delivery. He was a boxer before pursuing a singing career---a fact evidenced by his footwork in these 2 video selections. You can almost visualize him jumping rope in the 2nd video. He is said to have influenced Elvis, Michael Jackson, and James Brown.
Stuff that's fun.
