Carnie and Wendy Wilson performed on our March 20 concert!
GMCLA is thrilled that Carnie and Wendy Wilson of Wilson Phillips fame, and daughters of Beach Boy Brian Wilson, performed on our virtual concert. What better way to celebrate The California Sound than with the legendary family who helped to create and define it!
This one hour virtual event featured all-new video performances from the Chorus and Music Director & Conductor, Ernest H. Harrison. GMCLA members performed the music that put California on the map, and on the charts. From The Mamas and The Papas’ California Dreaming and The Beach Boys’ Surfing USA and God Only Knows to Aloe Blacc’s Wake Me Up and Billie Eilish’s Bad Guy, plus much more! Hosted by TV Anchor Melvin Robert with special guests Carnie and Wendy Wilson, of Wilson Phillips fame who performed Surf’s Up, and Governor Gavin Newsom with a special welcome message! Here’s our Press Release.
California Sound was watched by over 9,000 households. The Chorus family is honored that we were able to brighten so many lives by keeping our performing tradition alive. We thank those of you who donated during the streaming of California Sound, or afterwards.
