She has accompanied local artists, Larry Watson, Andre Ward, Walter Beasley and several other bands. Ms.Wilson has done background work for renowned artist, Patti Labelle, Natalie Cole and Smokey Robinson and most recently she and her band opened for renowned recording artist Freddie Jackson at the Berklee Perfomance Center in Boston. Ms.Wilson's multi-faceted vocals have resonated across stages in Germany, France, Japan and the Caribbean.

She sang in several church choirs until her transition to Boston where she started her professional singing career.
