Following recent performances in front of standing-room audiences this month in New York City at the WBLS/WLIB annual signature event, the Circle of Sisters Expo and Radio One's Spirit of Praise event at the DC Armory in Washington, DC , fans had the opportunity to witness Wilson's music and ministry firsthand.

With the holidays approaching, Wilson has also recorded a re-make of one of his favorite songs of the season, "This Christmas."  Wilson chose the Donny Hathaway classic as a way to celebrate and focus on Christ, our Savior's birth. "I want people to focus on the true meaning of Christmas and not get caught up in the culture of materialism and economics now connected to the day," states Wilson .  "This is a song that I love, done by one of my favorite artists of all times, Donny Hathaway."  The video for "This Christmas" will be reserviced to national, regional and local video outlets.  The single is available on iTunes and is featured as a bonus track on Trin-i-tee 5:7's forthcoming first-ever holiday CD,LOVE*PEACE*JOY AT CHRISTMAS in stores October 27.
