Everyone is born with a gift.....Vernon Wilson was born with the gift of music. Blessed with a voice so melodic, it’s hard to believe Vernon is a self-trained vocalist. He realized his God given talent at an early age in Saginaw, Michigan, the birthplace of R&B Icon Stevie Wonder. Vernon developed his vocal talents by listening to Motown greats like, Stevie Wonder and The Temptations. The self-study was inspired by the Legendary Luther Vandross. Vernon began creating flawless harmonies and perfecting his smooth silky voice. There was no doubt, Vernon was born to sing.
After winning a number of local talent shows, he became a featured performer at local clubs around Michigan. It wasn’t long before his crowd pleasing stage presence grabbed the attention of other more accomplished singers. Wilson has served as the opening act for Alexander O’Neal, Cherrelle, Bebe and Cece Winans, Sinbad, along with a host of other well-known entertainers.
Vernon continues to grace the stages of Chicago, Miami, Tampa, and Atlanta (where he currently resides) putting love back into love songs and rhythm into R&B. His debut album entitled, “Vernon Wilson, Let The Music Play”, is hitting the musical scene November 9th. Add it to your musical library. Vernon’s sound is undeniably infectious, soulful and music to your ears!
