I am excited and pleased to announce that "The Crown Prince of Soul", Mr. Charles Wilson, is on the scene and ready to touch your soul like never before! His smooth, strong vocals can, and will also, warm your heart, dig down deep into your spirit to stir up emotions you thought were untouchable, and will also shake you up to the point where you feel you can just reach out and touch whatever ails you, and have it all melt away... That's the magic of the voice of Charles Wilson!
Charles Wilson was raised in Chicago, began performing at age seven, and sang as a teenager in Chicago-area night clubs. Blues legend Little Milton is his uncle, however his break came when he got the opportunity to go out on the road with Bobby Rush at an early age. He started recording in 1978, but nothing was ever released. His first released single was in 1984, and achieved moderate success; however, it established him as a soul singer of note. He recorded for several record labels, including Ichiban Records, Ecko Records, Traction Records, CDS Records and also his own label Wilson Records; initial success of several artists included Lee 'Shot' Williams and Wilson himself. In 2004, Wilson then recorded a bona-fide blues CD for Delmark Records, entitled, "If Heartaches Were Nickels", featuring Little Milton and Carl Weathersby on guitars. This CD earned Wilson a W.C. Handy nomination for "Best Soul/Blues CD". A few years later, Wilson recorded a soul CD for Severn Records titled “TROUBLED CHILD”, which also got Wilson another W.C. Handy nomination for “Soul CD of The Year”. "TROUBLED CHILD", of which the title cut and "WHERE MY BABY'S AT" are both featured on this CD. Enjoy this journey...
