Gospel lovers from throughout the St. Louis area can rejoice, because 12-time Grammy Award winner Priscilla Mari Winans Love, better known as CeCe Winans, will bless the Touhill stage this September. An evening full of soulful gospel and blues will honor this artist’s historic career that began in Motown, just down the street from the Four Tops, with a family full of gospel-singing talent and has resulted in over 12 million records sold worldwide.
The daughter of David “Pop” Winans, Cece was one of 10 Winans children and began her career as a duo with her twin brother, BeBe. With their debut in 1984, they honored both their roots and heritage in gospel music while incorporating more modern elements like synthesizers and other electronic instruments, leading a new generation to fall in love with gospel music.
CeCe was also a friend and frequent collaborator with Whitney Houston, including their famous song about friendship, “Count on Me” from the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack. Eventually, CeCe launched her own solo career in the 1990s, including an album with production from the legendary Lauryn Hill, but never left her gospel roots behind and stayed true to the style that she was raised on.
Now CeCe is helping to further the family tradition with her newest collaborator: her son and producer, Alvin Love III. The true passion for gospel music and spiritual celebration that has been passed down from generation to generation is evident in their energy-and-emotion-filled music. The apple has not fallen far from the tree, with Love III taking home two Grammy Awards of his own in 2018 to add to his family’s extensive award collection.
Don’t miss this chance to see the best-selling and most-awarded female gospel artist of all time live an in person at the Touhill. For university VIPs, friends and donors, there will be a meet and greet both before and after the show. This is sure to be an emotionally inspiring performance, so get your tickets now to experience one of the most legendary voices of her generation.
