Many attempt to mimick the soul of R&B’s most classic artists, but as the legends will tell you, soul is a natural art that can not be forced. One of those natural soulful artist is Wilson Pickett. On this day in 2006, we lost such a legendary voice and songwriter. Creating such memorable hits including In The Midnight Hour, Mustang Sally, and Funky Broadway, Pickett is cited as having over fifty records hit the US R&B Charts, which many artist today can only wish to have half of that many on the charts.

Gone, but never forgotten Wilson Pickett! Remember the voice that leaves him scorched into musical history forever below.
