An Evening With Wilson Phillips at DeJoria Center!
Leading up to the 25th year anniversary of their self-titled album, Wilson Phillips has a lot to celebrate. Since the beginning of their union in 1990, Wilson Phillips have won the Billboard Music Award for Hot 100 Single of the Year for the now iconic single “Hold On”, were nominated for four Grammy Awards, as well as two American Music Awards. After a 10-year hiatus, Wilson Phillips reunited and were back to business releasing albums and making appearances. In 2011, they appeared in the blockbuster hit comedy “Bridesmaids” and starred in a TV Guide Network reality show: Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On. Additionally, Chynna Phillips competed on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” and Carnie Wilson hosted Karaoke USA and participated on Celebrity Wife Swap.
All of the girls commit their time and energy to various charities. Carnie Wilson competed in the Chopped Tournament of Stars: Rachel vs. Guy, in 2014, to represent WLSFA (Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America) and won $10k for second place.
Since 2011 Wilson Phillips have been on tour performing their #1 hits “Hold On”, “Release Me” and “You’re in Love” amongst other hits and covers. “Dedicated”, their latest recorded album in 2012, was released in honor of their 20th anniversary, consisted of cover songs originally penned by their parents (The Mamas and Papas and The Beach Boys). Created without the input of their family members, the album’s renditions of hits such as “California Dreamin” and “God Only Knows” epitomize the harmonies of Wilson Phillips and accentuate the classic songs with a breath of fresh air.
With five studio albums under their belt and their impressive pedigree as the daughters of two legendary groups: The Mamas and Papas, and The Beach Boys, respectfully, Wilson Phillips’s harmony-rich sound still sets them one notch above the rest.
