On Friday, May 26, 2023Anita Wilson will bring her City Winery Tour to Philadelphia. The doors open at 6:00pm for Wilson’s performance on the Main Stage at 7:30pm.
Since 2019, Ms. Anita Wilson has performed at several City Winery Venues, including Chicago, Atlanta, Nashville, New York, and D.C.. Each venue offers intimate concerts, timeless music, and local wines.
“After more than a decade of solo-artistry and being the first Gospel artist to headline City Wineries around the nation four years ago, the opportunity to play again in the City of Soul feels amazing. The concerts in their venues are always a vibe,” shares Wilson. “I’m excited to rock with my Philly family and share some of my latest music along with fan favorites.”
As an opening act, JPaul, affectionately known as Jason Paul, will perform at the Philly show. The music of JPaul combines R&B and soul with a sense of playfulness that reflects his humble gospel beginnings. Stephanie Mills, Tonex, and Tamar Braxton are just a few of the great musicians he has sung for throughout his vocal career.
JPaul says he has sung background for Anita on numerous occasions, but this time is different. “My big sister has welcomed me to open her show. That’s a privilege and an honor that gives me joy.”
