Today marks the sad anniversary of R&B singer Jackie Wilson's death. Check out this amazing footage of Roy Orbison and Del Shannon introducing Wilson on a 1974 Golden Oldies episode of The Midnight Special. Wilson performs his two massive hits "Higher and Higher" and "Lonely Teardrops." Just one year later he was singing the latter song at the Latin Casino in Cherry Hill New Jersey when he collapsed onstage and fell into a coma. He remained in that state until his death on this day in 1984.
