Can you believe the popular hit song “Hold On” by the group Wilson Philips came out 30 years ago? The song was released in 1990 and group member Carnie Wilson said she will never forget it. Chynna Phillips Baldwin will also never forget it, for several reasons!
For instance, Chynna’s oldest daughter Jameson was born on February 27th, 2000. “Hold On” was released on the same day, just 10 years earlier. She said on Twitter that “this day will always be special to me.” Happy birthday to Jameson and happy anniversary to the group for their song!

UNBELIEVABLE…. Today is the 30th ANNIVERSARY of “Hold On”!! How fast time flies!!! “Hold On” shot straight to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 back in 1990, and won us a Billboard Music Award and a Grammy nomination for Song of the Year. I just recently realized that my oldest daughter, Jameson, was born on February 27th of 2000… the same day Hold On was released back in 1990!! So this day will always be special to me. The song might have went #1, but she will always be MY #1!!! ❤️ Thank you to everyone who has continued to show love and support for “Hold On” throughout the years. In honor of the 30th anniversary, we’ve re-recorded a new version for you guys… it’s called “Hold On (Today)”, and it’s available on Apple Music and Spotify NOW!!! 30 years later, and we are STILL Holding On!!!
