Rita Wilson and her band closed out the first night of WrapWomen’s Power Women Summit on Thursday with a killer jam session that had the audience grooving in their seats.
In the video above, you’ll see the iconic actress singing her original song “Throw Me a Party,” one of several tracks she and her musicians performed for the ladies in the crowd at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica.
Before Wilson and her band performed, “This Is Us” star Chrissy Metz sat down for an intimate chat with TheWrap founder and editor in chief Sharon Waxman and Sophia Bush recorded a live podcast with congressional candidate Cori Bush.
