Hailing from Seattle, sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson burst onto the music scene in the 1970’s showing the entire world that rock was not just a man’s world. With hits such as Crazy on You, Magic Man, Barracuda, and Straight On, the sisters solidified themselves as rock royalty. Their journey brought them four Grammy nominations, a Grammy Foundation Northwest Chapter Lifetime Achievement Award, VH1 Rock Honors Lifetime Achievement, ASCAP Image Award for Lifetime Achievement for Excellence in Songwriting, an exhibit in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum and an exhibit at Seattle’s own Electronic Music Project Museum (EMP).
Seattle will have the opportunity to see Ann and Nancy perform a special hometown concert on Tuesday, April 9 at Benaroya Hall, before their very well-deserved induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on April 18, 2013. This once-in-a-lifetime experience will showcase the pure acoustic talent of the sisters for 2,400 very lucky guests.
Biographer Charles R. Cross, who worked with the sisters on their recently released New York Times best-selling book, Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul and Rock & Roll, will start the evening, sitting down with both sisters to discuss their amazing journey from Seattle to Capitol Records in Hollywood to being inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Both Ann and Nancy work with various charities including Race to Erase MS, Make a Wish Foundation, Alzheimer’s Association, Children’s Hospital of Seattle, MusiCares, American Heart Association, Susan B Komen Foundation, Noah’s Wish, and Stand Up to Cancer, to name a few!
