ABOUT ANNE WILSON:
Singer/songwriter Anne Wilson knows the healing power of music
firsthand. The lyrics of Hillsong Worship’s “What A Beautiful Name” became a lifeline for the
Lexington, Kentucky native after her brother was tragically killed in a car accident at the age of 23.
Although she spent much of her childhood behind a piano, Wilson sang in front of an audience for
the first time at her brother’s funeral. It was at that moment that she realized what she was born to
do. A video of her moving performance organically circulated, eventually landing her a record deal.
With a mesmerizing voice and a visible hunger for Jesus, the 20-year-old relies on personal journal
entries and time spent in nature for songwriting inspiration.
Wilson’s introductory track, “My Jesus”—which she co-wrote with Jeff Pardo and Matthew West—is
a warm invitation to experience her Savior in the same intimate way she knows Him. She released a
debut three-track single—also titled My Jesus—for Capitol Christian Music Group in early 2021 and
followed it up with a live EP, My Jesus (Live in Nashville). Her song, “My Jesus,” charted on the
Spotify Viral 50, Shazam Top 200, and Rolling Stone Top 25 Trending charts. Her story was also
featured with the Religion News Service and The Washington Post. She made her Opry debut on
the iconic stage in September 2021. Wilson was featured in Billboard Magazine as the October 2021
Chartbreaker artist. (Credit: Capital Music – Anne Wilson “My Jesus” Press Release)
