Nancy Wilson, Grammy-Winning Jazz Singer, Dead at 81

Three-time Grammy-winning jazz artist Nancy Wilson died peacefully on Thursday at the age of 81. The self-termed “song stylist” was at home at the time and had long suffered from a chronic illness, her manager Devra Hall Levy said. Wilson was a native of Chillicothe, Ohio, and made her debut with the 1961 single “Guess Who I Saw Today.” She retired from live performances in 2011 to “to spend all of her time with her family, especially her grandchildren.”
