HI-NELLA, N.J. — If you’re looking for a place where you can bring that special somebody to eat some soul food while listening to great music, then Wilson’s Restaurant & Live Music is the place you want to visit.
At Wilson’s there’s a lot of variety that people can look forward to; gospel night is one of the many entertainment pieces people can enjoy. The booking manager, Selena Robinson, booked artists Crystal McGee, Tony Jackson, and Chip Bailey to perform, and these artists were a perfect fit for the perfect venue. Tony Jackson was first to perform.
“I just want them to feel the presence of the Lord when I sing,” said Jackson. “I know when you feel God’s presence you feel better so I want them to feel better leaving them when they came.”
Henri’s Hotts Barbeque was responsible for the food, and while the people ate, they also made way for Crystal McGee who completely tore the house down with her voice.
“My plan tonight is to sing a little bit of new and a little bit of old,” said McGee. “I have to touch both genres, hit them with the new stuff, too.”
Chip Bailey closed the show with his live set that included a few selections he performed as a duet with his mother pulling at the heartstrings of South Jersey. Ultimately Selena Robinson chose an amazing line-up to entertain South Jersey, encouraging the people to come to the next gospel night because they were in for another awesome experience. This was definitely What’s Good in South Jersey this week!
