NASHVILLE, Tenn. – GRAMMY nominated songstress Anne Wilson releases her transformative feature track “Living Water” for the upcoming film Jesus Revolution. Arriving just days before celebrating the GRAMMY Awards in Los Angeles as a first-time nominee for her debut album My Jesus, “Living Water” finds Wilson’s powerful vocals leading listeners on an ethereal quest to find true meaning. The accompanying visual, premiering exclusively on Facebook today, spotlights key clips from the film that help convey the power behind reconciliation and the peace found while surrendering to your faith.
“I love to create and write songs, especially ones that truly speak to me,” shares Wilson. “After watching the new Jesus Revolution movie, I was deeply inspired by its message and its ability to reignite my own faith journey, which led us to write ‘Living Water.’ I hope it’s a testament to the transformative power of music and I pray that it will touch your heart in a profound away.”
Tapped by Lionsgate/Kingdom Story Company to pen the digital single, Wilson enlisted the help of renowned songwriters Matthew West and Jeff Pardo to write the feature track. The highly anticipated Jesus Revolution film starring Kelsey Grammer, Joel Courtney and Kimberly Williams-Perry will be hitting theaters nationwide on Feb. 24.
The artist with “unmistakable strength and unique country flair” (American Songwriter) is set to celebrate a big night of accomplishments at the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards taking place this Sunday, Feb. 5 at the Crypto.com Arena in LA. Making her mark with her first recognition from the Academy, the milestone achievement was made by the 20-year-old vocalist in near-record timing, who transcended on the scene just 18 months ago with her “deeply personal breakout ballad” (Billboard) and now RIAA GOLD certified single, “My Jesus.” Not only was the Christian hitmaker recognized for a debut album (My Jesus), Wilson also represents the only female in the highly-revered Best Contemporary Christian Album category.
The GRAMMY nod comes after a breakthrough year that saw Wilson taking home two awards at the GMA Dove Awards, two K-LOVE Fan Awards, and a coveted American Music Awards nomination. After playing over 150+ shows in 2022, the newly-named Pandora Artist to Watch: Christian/Gospel shows no sign of slowing down, and continues to captivate cities nationwide on the 2023 Winter Jam tour.
