Rita Wilson to Perform at East and West Coast Venues

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 10.01.48 AMActress, producer and singer Rita Wilson will perform songs from her album, “AM/FM,” at venues in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and New Jersey in October and November.

Although the Greek-American is well-known as an actress in popular films like “It’s Complicated,” “Sleepless in Seattle” and “The Good Wife,” and for her work as a film producer on “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” and “Mamma Mia!,” few may be aware that her early show biz ambitions were actually musical.

Born and raised in the Hollywood Hills, Wilson harbored dreams of becoming a singer in the ’60s and ’70s after falling in love with The Beatles, The Mamas & the Papas, Janis Joplin, and The Supremes, among others. She even took a part-time job as a ticket-taker at what was then the Universal Amphitheatre as a way to see such popular acts of the day as Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, James Taylor, and The Eagles.

Wilson released her debut album, “AM/FM,” last year to critical acclaim. A collection of songs from the ’60s and ’70s, the album features tracks like “Will You Love Me Tomorrow?,” “You Were On My Mind,” “All I Have To Do Is Dream” and “Cherish.”
