Biography

The daughter of John and Michelle Phillips of The Mamas & The Papas, Chynna Phillips was destined for musical stardom. After a brief foray into acting, including the lead role in "Roxanne: The Prize Pulitzer" (NBC, 1989), Phillips joined forces with Wendy and Carnie Wilson, daughters of Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys, to form the vocal trio Wilson Phillips. Their lovely harmonies and uplifting lyrics immediately connected with the public, and their multiplatinum self-titled 1990 album spawned three number ones: "Release Me," "You're in Love" and the biggest single of the year, "Hold On," which Phillips co-wrote. Showered with Grammy nominations, including for Best New Artist, Wilson Phillips stumbled with their 1992 follow-up and Phillips left the band. In 1995, she married William Baldwin and starred in a popular remake of "Bye Bye Birdie" (ABC, 1995) but her solo album Naked and Sacred bombed. The trio eventually reunited to release 2004's acclaimed California and Phillips began a Christian music side project in 2009. She went on record as believing her half-sister Mackenzie Phillips's claims of having an incestuous relationship with their father and completed a 2010 stint in rehab for anxiety. Decades later, audiences still fondly remembered Wilson Phillips, no doubt paving the way for the singer-actress to join the cast of "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ). Although her time at the top was brief, Chynna Phillips, along with the Wilson sisters, achieved a lasting impact on pop culture while adding a bright chapter to the musical legacy of their parents.
