The sad news was just confirmed that legendary singer Nancy Wilson has passed away. The three-time Grammy-winning artist was 81-years-old at the time of her death.

According to the New York Times, Wilson made a huge impact on the transition of the jazz-pop era of the 1950s to the ‘60s and 70’s pop-soul influence. She found major success in several genres including jazz, Broadway, R&B, and pop.

Wilson’s debut was her hit single “Guess Who I Saw Today” in 1961. While many of her songs found success on the Billboard’s Hot 100, her most popular was “(You Don’t Know) How Glad I Am” from 1964.

That song earned Wilson a Grammy Award. She went on to win two more Grammy Awards in 2005 and 2007, decades after her first.

In the ‘90s, the popular singer hosted NPR’s “Jazz Profiles.” Overall, Wilson spent over six decades influencing the music world.

Sadly, the singer has passed away at the age of 81. According to CNN, Wilson passed away on Thursday peacefully at her home after a long illness.
