Our trip through Nashville continues, where we're joined by the best-selling female gospel artist of all time: CeCe Winans. The eighth child of ten musically-talented brothers and sisters, this 10-time Grammy Award winner grew up destined to touch people's lives through the power of song. Though she initially resisted, CeCe made her mark in the church choir when she was just three years old, raising the rafters with "Fill My Cup Lord," which she reprises for us in this segment.
Gospel was the only music that played in CeCe's Detroit home, so it was no surprise that she and her brother, BeBe would go on to flourish in this genre.
On tour, the brother and sister duo captured many fans, including the eyes and ears of the late Whitney Houston. In this episode, CeCe recalls meeting Whitney for the first time, and how that one night led to years of collaboration and most importantly, friendship.
CeCe is joined by her son Alvin Love III, who produced her latest album. The two share heartwarming stories accented by CeCe's angelic voice as she sings everything from the first gospel song she ever performed, to her Grammy winning hits. This is a talent, a voice, and an episode that shouldn't go unheard.
Our host, Robert K. Oermann and the series producer, Brad Newman take us along for this spiritual ride.
