New Show Brings Jackie Wilson To Life
A legendary R and B performer will come to life this week in Pensacola.
In 1958, Jackie Wilson released his third single, Lonely Teardrops. It was a number one R&B hit and made the national top 10 and turned Wilson into a star. In 1975, he had a heart attack and collapsed on stage and slipped into a coma. He remained in that coma until he died in 1984. Jackie Wilson’s star will shine again at the Pensacola Little Theater this Friday and Saturday evenings as veteran Broadway performer Chester Gregory brings his show called The Eve of Jackie Wilson to town.
Chester Gregory will be performing as Jackie Wilson this Friday and Saturday evening at the Pensacola Little Theater. Showtime both nights is 8pm.
