About Rich Wilson
More than four decades of performances and RICH WILSON is still going strong!
He has performed from the stages of Las Vegas to Atlantic City and just about everything in between!
Rich continues to bring his special form of entertainment to audiences everywhere.
Rich is probably best known for his singing of Elvis Presley songs and get people on their feet with applause. This has always been a strong part of his performances but not the only thing he does. His special ability to sing a wide variety of styles of music allows him to adapt to almost any situation he may come across. Standards like those sung by Sinatra,
Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin and more are also the songs that Rich has mastered over the years.
He tends to almost sound like each artist that originally did the songs. Country music has been a major and fun area for
Rich to sink his teeth into because he says his father raised him on the classic country music of artists like Eddy Arnold
and Hank Williams. So, it is only natural that Rich can throw himself into a cowboy hat and take us back to the golden days
of the Grand ol' Opry. Gospel music is also an area that Rich has done very well at. As a matter of fact, his gospel recordings are among his best selling. It is the music of the 50's and the 60's that Rich does the most and he does them very well. No matter what performance you take in by Rich Wilson you are almost certain to experience songs originally recorded by artists like Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Pat Boone, The Platters and many, Many More!
On October 27, 2013, Rich was deeply honored and moved when the New York State Country Music Hall Of Fame
inducted Rich into their HALL OF HONOR.
Many of Rich's fans turned out for this wonderful event. "It is a milestone in my career" said Wilson.
UPDATE: RICH WILSON

Singing early Gospel music is also one of the shows that Rich gets requests for.
His unique ability to minister through music come naturally and the audience can feel it ...especially when Rich gives
his own personal testimony. Precious messages are woven throughout the Gospel show as Rich attempts to
reach that person in need of some guidance or who is experiencing loss or pain. Come to a Rich Wilson Gospel performance and you will feel lifted!
