Jackie Wilson-Danny Boy

Here's Jackie singing a classic that originally wasn't his own, but he made Danny Boy his, and he sung it better then anyone else. He proved in this song he was more then just a rock and roll, rhythm and blues, soul singer, but you can definitely hear the gospel and soul in the song, along with his operatic voice. He was a versatile singer that could literally sing any song! What a vocal range with control..WOW! There is another vocalist with 2nd best Danny Boy recording. Check out Frankie Lymon-Danny Boy
