Singer-songwriter Anne Willson's brand new single "My Jesus" has received over 3 million streams on Apple Music. "My Jesus," which is taken from Wilson's debut EP, has also been the most added song on radio for the 5th week in a row. Co-written with Matthew West and Jeff Pardo, the song addresses how for her, Jesus is personal and a warm invitation to experience Him in the same intimate way.
Wilson is grateful her the success of her song. "Y'ALL thank you so deeply for 3 million streams on @applemusic Blown away!"
"I've been super surprised at the response to my single," shares Anne Wilson. "Since I had never released any music before, I was excited and anxious. I remember praying the night before My Jesus released 'God, I've done what I can do with this song. This is up to you and whatever you want to do with the song.' I had this peace come upon me and knowing that God had a plan, no matter what happened.
It's been unexpected, but it's been so incredible to see, and I'm so humbled and honored that He's using me as His vessel to spread the gospel and to remind people that they can have a personal relationship with the Lord. When I hear stories, where people are being specifically impacted by this song, it is such an encouragement to my heart because it reminds me that God has such good plans for us."
Wilson will be releasing a follow-up live EP, My Jesus (Live In Nashville), on August 6th featuring the three previously released songs recorded as live versions along with a new song "No Place Like Home," and a cover of Little Big Town's "Boondocks."
"It is going to be fun to share these live songs we just recorded at White Dove Barn," she states. "I'm really excited to share the new song, 'No Place Like Home,' as it is my favorite song I've written. It's about my brother Jacob and I's memories together. It's truly an incredible song that captures the times we had together as brother and sisters on my grandfather's farm. I'll always cherish those memories we have with him and I'm ready to share it with the world. I wrote this song on the same day as 'My Jesus' with Jeff and Matthew and we wrote it in about 10 minutes! It just came together so beautifully."
