My Review             
I was delighted to be able to attend the livestream for the My Jesus on April 27th. I've never attended a livestream for any such event before, so that was a treat for me. I also have to preface my review by saying that I normally do not listen to Christian music. I have nothing against it, but I don't normally go
out of my way to listen to bands/singers who have songs in the Christian genre. However, I am always open to discovering new artists and giving them a chance, and I have to say, I was pleasantly
surprised by how much I really, truly enjoyed this album. It was wonderful and joyful, and each song really made me feel uplifted and free, if you will. I wasn't expecting that, so it was a very nice
surprise. The songs all elicit different emotions, and they're all very catchy in their own way, making you want to listen to your favorites again and again. And speaking of favorites, I think Sunday
Sermons is mine, but I really liked most of the songs on the album. If you are a fan of Christian music, or you just enjoy catchy, emotional songs that will lift your mood and make you smile, definitely give My Jesus a listen. You might just be surprised like I was.

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.

  1. I like 'Something About That Name' although all the songs are really good.
