EMI Gospel recording artist Anita Wilson had a banner year in 2012, as she stepped onto center stage with the release of her debut album, Worship Soul, a powerful and moving 11-song anthology in which Wilson gives the listener a worship experience that extends beyond Sunday morning. The solo album by the worship leader and former featured vocalist for the award-winning ensemble, Donald Lawrence and Company has garnered rave reviews, as well as nominations for a GRAMMY® Award and three Stellar Awards.
Worship Soul was named as one of the top ten albums of 2012 by celebrated New York Times music critic Ben Ratliff, who described the album as “a set of polished slow ballads and hard funk that keeps moving narratively, turning new pages and stepping to higher levels.”
