Willie Wilson Sings

"For years, Mr. Wilson had created something of a stir in Christ Temple Baptist Church with his singing efforts," the Wall Street Journal once reported.

"Tone deaf, he concedes he 'couldn't hold a note.' His pastor, the Rev. Princeton McKinley, nonetheless let him sing - solo. He would gently admonish the congregation: 'Listen to the words, not how it sounds.'"

1. At the St. John The Baptist Orthodox Church in Villa Park.

Date unknown.


2. Singsation 2008.

Date unknown.


3. At the Singsation International Gospel Humanitarian Awards 2007, Chicago Theatre.

"Watch the amazing performance of Dr. Willie Wilson singing 'Through it All' with the late Rev. Baker. Enjoy the gospel music of Melvin Williams singing 'Great Day' and various choirs at the Chicago Theatre. Executive Producer: Dr. Willie Wilson. Producer/Director: Sarah Tucker Fisher."

Wilson comes in at 3:30. Also, he's not really a doctor.
