‘Bridesmaids’ Bringing Back Wilson Phillips… Finally

As if it weren’t enough that the new movie Bridesmaids is six kinds of hilarious, the movie is giving a boost to Wilson Phillips and their 90s musical masterpiece “Hold On.”

Nielsen Soundscan says the song has risen 620 percent in sales and one of the band’s managers says requests for Wilson Phillips have been pouring in. Band member Carnie Wilson credits the band’s publicist Lizzie Grubman for getting them in the movie.

Do you remember Wilson Phillips? Surely their hit “Hold On” rings a bell, as it helped the band sell 10 million records in the early 1990′s.

Now, the band is back for a reunion tour, and has employed Manhattan agency Lizzie Grubman PR to get the word out. From the release:

One of the best selling female groups of all time, Wilson Phillips is back together and releasing their first ever Christmas album “WILSON PHILLIPS CHRISTMAS IN HARMONY” this October 2010 on Sony MASTERWORKS / DRW Entertainment. The award-winning trio consisting of Chynna Phillips, Carnie Wilson and Wendy Wilson will be reuniting with their original music producer Glen Ballard on this Christmas-themed album, kicking-off the pop group’s overall return.
