Cece Winans

Award-winning gospel singer Priscilla Marie Winans Love – born October 8, 1964, in Detroit, Michigan – is better known by her stage name CeCe Winans. She’s a member of the veteran gospel family group The Winans but came to prominence in the duo BeBe & CeCe Winans with her older brother Benjamin ‘BeBe’ Winans. The duo’s career began in 1981 when they performed on The PTL Club, a long-running Christian telecast hosted by Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker. Initially members of The Winans, the duo caught the attention of the PTL audience when they performed their interpretation of the hit song “Up Where We Belong”, which had a few lyric alterations made to appeal to Christian audiences. The duo’s first album, Lord Lift Us Up, was released in 1984 and landed at number 20 on Billboard’s Gospel Albums chart. The duo released six albums in 10 years, two of them – Heaven (1988) and Different Styles (1991) – reached the top spot on the Gospel Albums chart. After a decade of working together, the siblings pursued their own solo careers. CeCe Winans’ solo career was enormously successful, landing six number 1 albums in the Gospel Albums chart including Everlasting Love (1998), Alabaster Box (1999), Throne Room (2003), Purified (2005), Thy Kingdom Come (2008), and Let Them Fall in Love (2017). Forty years after her PTL debut, she released the live album Believe for It (2021), which was yet another success alongside the album’s single, “Goodness of God”. Three years later, CeCe Winans returned with a series of singles – “Holy Forever,” “That’s My King,” and “Come Jesus Come,” all through of which were included on her 2024 live release More Than This. During her career, she has won 15 Grammy Awards – the most for any female gospel singer – plus 28 GMA Dove Awards, and many other honors to her credit. CeCe Winans is the best-selling gospel artist of all time and has sold millions of albums both as a solo artist and as one-half of the duo with her brother.
