Nancy Wilson, a three-time Grammy-winning artist who called herself a "song stylist," has died, her manager said. Wilson passed away peacefully Thursday at her home after a long illness, her manager, Devra Hall Levy, said. The vocalist from Chillicothe, Ohio, initially focused on R&B music but later excelled at jazz ballads and torch songs. She made her debut with her 1961's single, "Guess Who I Saw Today." Wilson's biggest hit came in 1964 with "(You Don't Know) How Glad I Am," which rose through the charts to the #11 spot on Billboard's Hot 100 singles and earned her a Grammy Award for best R&B recording. She would win two more Grammy Awards, in 2005 and 2007. In the 1990s, Wilson became the host of National Public Radio's "Jazz Profiles," a documentary series featuring jazz legends and the music legacy.

She was one of the greatest vocalists in the modern era.

And the way she transitioned from jazz to rock with her sister in Heart was amazing.

(Sorry, couldn't resist.)

I represented Nancy when her scumbag stepson got her in financial trouble, she was honestly one of the loveliest people I ever met.

RIP and thanks for being wonderful.
