BeBe Winans Essentials
It’s no overstatement to call BeBe Winans an ambassador for gospel music. Not only has he performed for world leaders, but the singer collaborated with former president Barack Obama. His bona fides are no secret: a member of one of gospel’s most revered families, Winans achieved fame with his sister CeCe before starting a solo career in 1997. His style comes with a uniquely modern spin. Inspired by neo-soul and pop jazz, he makes gospel that appeals to both churchgoers and R&B fans. Winans also enjoys doing the unexpected, like transforming the standard “Uncloudy Day” into a country-music jaunt featuring Willie Nelson and Toby Keith.
