Capitol CMG artist and songwriter Anne Wilson has released her latest single, “God Thing,” available now. The high-energy track written by Wilson, Ben Glover and Jeff Sojka, “explores the tiny ‘miracles’ that happen every day to remind us that a higher power is there to guide us and support us when needed. “
Wilson’s anticipated debut album, “My Jesus,” drops everywhere April 22 and is currently available for pre-order/pre-save.
“‘God Thing’ is a very special song,” Wilson said. “I grew up hearing the phrase, ‘It’s a divine thing,’ and I didn’t fully understand it until I watched God do miraculous things. He’s faithful and always moving in our lives even when we can’t see it. I pray this song will show you the places where God is working in your life.
“God Thing” follows Wilson’s singles, “Sunday Sermons,” “Hey Girl,” and his hit debut album, “My Jesus,” which was the longest running No. 1 song on the Billboard Christian airplay chart of 2021 during seven weeks total. The song also made Wilson the first female artist to top the Billboard Christian airplay chart with a debut song. Wilson’s soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics have garnered the up-and-coming artist over 140 million career streams, making him one of the most successful debut acts of 2021.
Fans are invited to join Wilson for a special “My Jesus Album Launch Livestream Event” (in partnership with KISWE) taking place on April 27 (8 p.m. ET). She will perform several songs from her new album, talk about her album and the recording process, and answer questions from fans live in the chat during the event. Tickets for the live event are available here.
Wilson is currently on the road with Zach Williams and will also be joining the “My People Tour” with Crowder, We The Kingdom and Patrick Mayberry this summer. She will also perform at the Grand Ole Opry for the second time on April 16. His episode of “My Opry Debut” will premiere this weekend on CircleTV.
Wilson knows the healing power of music firsthand. The lyrics to Hillsong Worship’s “What A Beautiful Name” became a lifeline for the Lexington 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 for an audience for the first time at her brother’s funeral. It was then that she realized what she was born to do. A video of her emotional performance circulated organically, eventually earning her a record deal.
Wilson’s introductory track, “My Jesus,” which she co-wrote with Pardo and West, is described as “a warm invitation to experience her savior in the same intimate way that she knows him. “. She released a three-track debut 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).” The song was on the Spotify Viral 50, Shazam Top 200, and Rolling Stone Top 25 Trending charts.
