Precious was born in Spanish Town, Jamaica where she lived until the
age of seven, when her family moved to Britain. Her first big break
came with her band Eruption when they entered and won an "RCA Soul
Search Contest" in 1975. It was whilst touring in West Germany that
they met Boney M's manager/producer Frank Farian, which resulted in a
recording contract with Hansa Records based in Berlin. In 1978 Eruption
covered the Ann Peebles classic I can’t stand the rain, which was
a big hit internationally. Precious Wilson's lead vocals on I
can’t stand the rain grabbed the imagination of the world,
turning it into a gigantic hit soon to be followed by One way ticket,
which had similar success internationally.
Precious went solo and made two hugely successful Albums in Europe,
We are on the race track and All coloured in love, both on Hansa WEA
label. In the mid- eighties her single entitled I’ll be your
friend on Jive Records underlined her appeal on the dance and soul
circuit, selling extensively over a four month period. She followed up
this success with the title track to the blockbuster movie entitled The
Jewel of The Nile. In 1986 she became involved in the fight against
drug abuse. An anti-drug disc was recorded at Abbey Road Studio:
It’s a live in world. In 1987 she teamed up with those premier
producers, Stock/Aitken and Waterman for one of the strongest disco
recordings of 1987 Only the strong survive.
1990 was a year when Precious made her debut as an actress in the
Musical Blues in the night. She, along with Stephanie Lawrence, Miquel
Brown and Ewen Cummins, were the principle characters. More recently,
she has appeared as a guest vocalist on the album of Techno Eccentrics
Messiah. Together they achieved a Top 20 single hit in the UK, with
their version of the Donna Summer's I feel love.
