Acapella Cover: Wilson Phillips Medley

In 1990, Chynna Phillips and sisters Carnie and Wendy Wilson, better known as Wilson Phillips, burst onto the American music scene with Hold On, the carrier single of their self-titled debut album. Hold On was a crossover smash, becoming Billboard’s Hot 100 Single of the Year for 1990; the group’s next single, Release Me, also went to #1. After Impulsive hiccuped at #4, You’re In Love also went to #1, making Wilson Phillips the first – and so far, only – group to have three #1 hits from a debut CD.

Everyone who knew me during my teenage years knows I was crazy for Wilson Phillips. I lived and breathed their music, I knew the lyrics, I had posters, the works; all that was missing was an autograph and a concert experience, lol. Because of Wilson Phillips, I learned how to harmonize, and because of Wilson Phillips, I decided to write music. Twenty years later – my goodness! – I still “keep the candle burning” for the group, and continue to support their individual endeavors. I have every single CD they’ve released, every solo CD, every single.

I wonder why it took me so long to make an a capella cover of one of their songs. I guess I couldn’t decide which one, and I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to do it justice. So I decided to make a medley and well, it’s far from perfect – Wilson Phillips is one of the closest things to perfection in my eyes – but I hope listeners appreciate the heart that went into this. If ever Chynna, Carnie, or Wendy find their way to this humble blog, let me just say this: “I’ve loved you for twenty years, and you have made one of the biggest impacts on my life. Thank you for your music.”
