Hall of Fame
Multi-talented recording star and actress Nancy Wilson is a favorite of millions of Americans.
While a student at West High School, Miss Wilson spent much of her time developing her singing talent and poise. And after attending Wilberforce College, she decided on a singing career, touring the Midwest and Canada. She hosted her own Columbus television series, then signed with Capitol Records and produced 14 albums in her first six years. Miss Wilson’s dramatic acting debut came in 1966 in NBC’s “I Spy” series.
Always anxious to help the less fortunate, she conducts her own campaign to combat the school dropout problem by performing free concerts in ghetto schools, followed by a talk on the advantages of education.
