Wilson Phillips's Wendy Wilson: "We Are Who We Are"

In the early '90s, Wilson Phillips calmly came onto the music scene with their 1990 self-titled debut album and launched such hits as "Hold On," "Impulsive" and "You're in Love." They received Grammy nominations for Best New Artist, Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group in 1990 and 1991. Their second album, 1992's Shadows and Light, took on a different tone than their debut, dealing with issues like child abuse and other personal matters.

Shortly after Shadows and Light they parted ways, but returned in 2004 with the cover-song collection California. They made a cameo in the 2011 box-office smash Bridesmaids, which resulted in a major popularity surge and introduced Wilson Phillips to a new generation.

Rocks Off recently talked with Wendy Wilson via phone about their newfound popularity, what it was like to work with Kristen Wiig and their new reality show on the TV Guide Network, Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On.
