Here is rare footage of tv coverage of Jackie Wilson's funeral and mini biography. There are three or four different coverage on his funeral included in this video, and ironically at the same time of Jackie's death, was the same time Michael Jackson had his accident, so coverage was done on both, so included is a few moments of coverage on MJ, don't want to take attention away from Jackie, but the footage came together. How coincidental two sad occasions of two legends (who have been compared) happen around the same time. It's widely known Jackie was a huge influence on MJ.
I have to give respect to Levi Stubbs and The Tops and Marv Johnson, a few Motowners, for showing respect at Jackie's funeral.
