Precious Wilson is an award-winning Singer, Song-writer, Speaker, #1 International Best-Selling Author.
Precious was born in Jamaica, is one of the pioneers of the UK Black music revolution of the 70’s and 80’s. Her family moved to England when she was seven. At the age of 14, her mother decided to send her to study in the US, in Hartford Connecticut to live with my aunt and my cousin, where her passion for singing was further ignited, whilst there she joined the local church choir.

Just over a year later armed with a recording contract, her international professional career as the lead singer with the soul disco band called ERUPTION was launched in the UK.

The band moved to Germany where Eruption wisely distinguished themselves early on by bringing her distinctive and powerful voice front and centre, leading the vocalist to worldwide acclaim and fame. After a string of international hits with the pioneering group, including the 1977 disco classic

“I Can’t Stand The Rain,” Ms. Wilson left Eruption to pursue a solo career that yielded a series of dance-pop hits that dabbled in funk, R&B, electro and high-energy dance throughout much of the ’80s. In addition to working with the legendary Frank Farian

Precious continued her success with the title track to the blockbuster movie starring MICHEAL DOUGLAS, KATHLEEN TURNER and DANNY De VITO, entitled: “THE JEWEL OF THE NILE” written by the team of Britten and Lyle who wrote Tina Turner’s smash hit “What’s Love Got TO Do”.

She toured the former USSR on the invitation of the Soviet Cultural Ministry and was the first black UK based female artiste to have undertaken such an extensive tour in the then USSR.

Her musical legacy is that of being one of the pioneers of the UK Black music revolution of the late 70’s and 80’s, alongside such artists as Junior Giscombe, Jazzy B (Soul 2 Soul), Heatwave, Loose Ends, and Eddy Grant.

Live performances, guest appearances, vocal contribution and collaborations, include shows in the Albert Hall, Monte Carlo, the Kremlin, a Royal Variety Show in the presence of HRH QUEEN ELIZABETH of the UK, a member of the SAUDI ROYAL FAMILY, James Brown, Boney M, Michael Bolton, Little Richard, Sir Cliff Richard, Sir Paul McCartney, and Sir Elton John.

She is a true champion of singers. Everything she does, is because she believes that you need to be original and develop Your Signature Sound, so that you stand out from the completion.

Her unique, timeless and instantly identifiable vocal style and flavour, continues to excite the masses, as she actively tours the world today, representing the group Eruption and as a solo star in her own right.
