Audiences will never forget her in Nora Ephron’s Sleepless in Seattle (with the unforgettable scene referencing An Affair to Remember).  Rita has appeared with some of the finest actors of her generation in such films as It’s ComplicatedMixed Nuts, Now and Then, That Thing You Do!, Jingle All The Way, Psycho, Runaway Bride, Invisible Child, The Story of Us, Auto Focus, Raise Your Voice, The Chumscrubber, Beautiful, Ohio, My Life in Ruins and  Old Dogs.  Additional recent film work includes wrapping production on the independent film, Emmett for which she also contributed an original song.  Rita alsostars in the upcoming film Simple Wedding which made its premiere at the Los Angeles FilmFestival in September 2018. Rita also co-wrote and sang the end-credits song, “Heart Unknown” for Simple Wedding.

She first donned her producers cap for the record-breaking box-office hit, My Big Fat Greek Wedding and returned as a producer and actor in its sequel, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, released in 2016. Additionally, Rita co-wrote and performed Even More Mine, the song which plays over the film’s credits. Wilson, the driving force behind bringing Nia Vardalos’ semi-autobiographical story to the screen with Vardalos as the lead, was honored with the Producer’s Guild of America’s Visionary Award, the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Comedy, as well as receiving Golden Globe and Oscar nominations. Rita’s instincts proved solid once again when she saw the theatrical production of Mamma Mia! in London shortly after it opened. Rita’s love of ABBA’s music led her to secure the rights and develop the 2008 Universal hit starring Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan. Wilson served as an Executive Producer for its sequel, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! released on July 20, 2018 by Universal Pictures. 

Music has always also been one of Rita’s passions.  Her new album, Halfway to Home will be released on March 29, making for a notable day along with her honor on the Walk of Fame. Halfway to Home blends Southern California rock with Nashville country and was largely recorded in Nashville.  The first single, “Throw Me A Party,” is available now and was exclusively premiered by Rolling Stone who called the track, “evocative.”  This spring and summer and she will be performing at such notable music festivals as Stagecoach (April), Lake Shake (June) and CMA Fest (June).

Rita has toured extensively; in addition to her own headlining shows she toured with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band CHICAGO in 2015 and created Liner Notes: Songwriters, Stories and Music, in which she is joined by special guests for an evening of songwriters performing and sharing the stories behind their songs.  The show has been performed in such famed venues as the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles, the Bluebird Café in Nashville and the iconic Café Carlyle in New York City multiple times.  For her LA performances of Liner Notes, Rita won the Broadway World Award for Best Female Cabaret – Large Venue.
