REUTERS/Mark Blinch/File Photo (Reuters) - Grammy award-winning singer Nancy Wilson, whose hits ranged from R&B to jazz and funk, died at her California home at age 81 on Thursday after a long illness, her publicist said.

Wilson, who came to fame as a torch singer in the 1960s, called herself a โ€œsong-stylistโ€ and resisted labeling as a jazz singer for most of her career since she could cross many genres.
