Capitol CMG recording artist and songwriter Anne Wilson celebrates the one-year anniversary of her single "My Jesus" this weekend. "My Jesus" was the longest-running No. 1 song on the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart of 2021 for seven weeks total.
The song also made Wilson the first female artist to hit the top of the Billboard Christian Airplay chart with a debut song. Her soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics have garnered the emerging artist more than 160 million career streams, making her one of the most successful debut acts of 2021.
Wilson reflects, "`My Jesus' was written from the depths of my heart. God used my story of tragedy to change and impact so many lives. I never thought in a million years I'd be where I am today.
"It all started from the "My Jesus (Official Music Video)" going viral on Facebook, and it just never stopped. "My Jesus" was the longest #1 single on Billboard's Christian Airplay chart of 2021 at 7 weeks total, and just this last week it was nominated for a 2022 Billboard Music Award for "Top Christian Song" against Kayne West (CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!?!).
"This anniversary seems so timely, as we're only 1 WEEK AWAY from the release of the full-length "My Jesus" album, and Easter is upon us. Isn't that just like God? The timing feels as if He's reminding me of His love and the power that one song can have in changing a life right before I release so many more to you. But also reminding me, that's it's all His doing. I'm just blown away by it all. I never dreamed this would happen, but I'm so thankful for it."
Wilson's major-label debut album, My Jesus, will be available everywhere next Friday, April 22nd. Pre-sale and pre-save for My Jesus is now available HERE.
