5. Gospel Pitch:

"With her new project, Worship Soul, Anita Wilson joins the rich musical heritage known as the Chicago sound, while simultaneously heralding a new style in today's gospel music - Worship Soul. A featured vocalist in the Grammy Award-winning ensemble Donald Lawrence & Company, she boldly takes the solo stage with an album that is at once fiery and soulful, dynamic and meditative.

"The album's lead single is featured on WOW Gospel 2012: a collection of 30 of 2011's most popular songs. Anita co-produced the album with acclaimed songwriter/producer Rick Robinson and it was recorded live in Chicago at Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church.

"The South Side church, founded by Rev. Clay Evans and currently under the pastorate of chart-topping Pastor Charles Jenkins of 'Awesome' fame, is also the ministry where Anita is a member. Powerful and moving from beginning to end, Anita Wilson's debut collection is refreshing and authentic. Worship Soul is a richly painted portrait of a truly inspired artist, a deeply committed worshipper.

"Recently, the singer was nominated for three 2013 Stellar Awards. The most coveted award in Gospel music, Anita received nominations for Contemporary Female of the Year, Praise & Worship CD of the Year (for Worship Soul) and Urban Inspirational Single or Performance of the Year (for 'Speechless').

"To cap off her phenomenal 2012, Anita was nominated for her first Grammy Award for Best Gospel Album of the Year. In addition, Anita Wilson was tapped to open for the Grammy Award-winning duo Mary Mary for two dates on their tour.

"Ben Ratliff of the New York Times ranked Anita's Worship Soul as the Top 10 Album of 2012. Anita recently played South by Southwest, the nation's most popular music festival."
