Bobby Brooks Wilson, son of legendary R&B singer Jackie Wilson, will be performing at the Old
Town Dinner Theatre, located at the Pine Bluff Country Club, 1100 Country Club Lane, May 4.
Bobby is carrying his father’s legacy to a whole new generation of fans. He has
thrilled audiences on five continents by performing an energetic and high energy show every
time he steps onto the stage. Singing songs from his just released C.D., It’s About Time, along
with stylish renditions of the iconic hits popularized by his famous father and other timeless
songs, Bobby captures his audience with his lush vocals and smooth dance moves. Rarely do
audiences get to take a walk down memory lane as they do when they hear Bobby’s renditions
of Jackie Wilson’s most recognized songs. Bobby has come into his own as a highly acclaimed
performer and flawlessly blends all of this together in such way that when the show is over the
audience is shouting for encores.
“Some where up in ‘soul heaven’ the late great Jackie Wilson must be as proud as a peacock
over his long lost son, Bobby Brooks Wilson who through various reasons never knew his father.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Bobby who sounds uncannily like his pop releases the album,
It’s About Time. Overcoming personal tragedies that read like a work of fiction, Bobby sings
some of his father’s finest moments such as, I Got The Sweetest Feeling, Higher and Higher,
Lonely Teardrops and an amazing version of Otis Redding’s, I’ve Been Loving You Too Long.
