Gospel singer and East St. Louis native, Anita Wilson, visited the KTSU studios to discuss and promote her new release titled “Vintage Worship”. Ms. Wilson was drawn to music and singing at an early age, and in time she developed a vocal style that merged traditional gospel with jazz, pop, and R&B influences like Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder, and Aretha Franklin, and coupled with her range and approach, she became a much in demand backup singer for contemporary gospel and praise and worship acts like Hezekiah Walker, Marvin Sapp, DeWayne Woods, and Vanessa Bell Armstrong. She also spent a stint as a singer with Donald Lawrence & Co., turning her solo on “Happy Being Me” from Lawrence’s “The Law of Confession” album into a spotlight favorite.
