His married life

Kenny Wilson has been happily married to his wife, Agnes Wilson. Agnes is a nurse by profession who works with rehab patients. 

As of now, she is working as a registered nurse at the Kaiser Permanente Hospital. Through their marital bliss, they became parents to two adorable daughters. 

They welcomed their first daughter on June 27, 1997, and named her Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson

Their second child was also a daughter whom they named Alex Wilson. Alex has also decided to follow in her father and sister's footsteps and become a musician. 

She plays in her school band. She is also fond of basketball. 

He influenced his daughter to pursue a career in music

Kenny spent his whole life playing music and is also the one who introduced his daughter to music at a very young age, as he used to host the practice sessions of his band in the living room. 

In an interview, while talking about what inspired him to be a musician, he said that he followed in the footsteps of his grandmother, who used to play piano in the church. 

He also revealed that he had also made a promise to himself that if he ever had children, he would introduce them to music and teach them to love music, just like his grandmother taught him. 

His daughter, in an interview, said that she and her father would listen to different singers, and he would teach her to play the guitar, which influenced her in a positive way, and she wanted to be a real artist. 

He has always been supportive of his daughter's career. 

Father daughter bond

During an interview, H.E.R. said that she was able to learn about so many different styles of music and so much history in music because of her father. 

She added that her father's love for music and him telling her about visiting Jimi Hendrix's grave in Seattle and all those stories and lessons were fascinating for her, and she thinks they really carried her into this life and into this journey she has now. 

For Kenny, music was a way to connect with his daughter. 

Kenny said he thinks one of the ways he was able to bond with Gabi was through music. 

He added he had been around a lot of children who play music, but none of them really had that old feel like they have been here before kind of vibe. Like, how are you only nine and can feel music so deeply? 

Gabi also praised her father, saying that one of the biggest things that helped her stay grounded was her father. 

He always taught her values, the key in life, and what she deserves in life. 

She said these things helped as it's been a key thing in the industry because it is so easy to seek validation from people, but to know she has that foundation is everything. 

His daughter also revealed how he sacrificed so many things in his life just so she could live her dream. 

He used to miss many days of working construction to travel with her, buy her first strat, teach her blues, take her to her gigs, have long days in the studio for many years, and many more. 

She lastly said that there comes a point in time when the little girl you once knew has to go out into the world and apply the lessons she was taught, and Gabi will always have that foundation. 

Kenny, as a proud father, said that when he opens Instagram, he sees parents buying their little girls guitars and dressing up like his daughter for Halloween, which makes him tear up as he knows his daughter always dreamt of changing the way little black girls thought about music. 

Net worth

His daughter, H.E.R., has a net worth of $2 million.
