There’s no stopping the outstanding performance of CeCe Winans’ current album, “Believe For It.”  Prior to street date, the record began to acquire a buzz throughout the Christian and gospel industry, which heightened the anticipation of hearing new music from the celebrated voice of Winans. The live recording featuring 12 heart-felt songs of worship quickly rose to the top of the charts, claiming the number one spot on four different Billboard Gospel Charts with the album remaining in the number slot for seven consecutive weeks.

Winans is now making her mark at key Christian radio stations and networks like: K-Love, KLTY (Dallas), KSBJ (Houston), The Fish (Atlanta and Los Angeles), WONU (Chicago), Sirius XM, The Message and many more.  The single, “Believe For It,” holds a Top 10 presence on the Billboard Christian Charts chiming in at #7 on Billboard Christian Airplay Chart, #9 on the Billboard Monitored Chart, #7 on Billboard Christian Digital Song Sales Chart and #9 on the Mediabase Christian AC Chart.

The album is currently at #4 on Billboard’s Top Christian/Gospel Album chart and has been in the top 10 every week since its release 20 weeks ago. The US On-Demand streams for “Believe For It,” the song that distributes hope to the multitudes, has surpassed the 13 million cyber count and the album is over 41 million and increasing daily.


“It’s always a privilege to work with artists of CeCe’s caliber. We are beyond excited about the success she is having with this record and we know there is much more to come,” says Jeff Moseley, founder and president of FairTrade.

The 36 million video views the album has received on YouTube and FaceBook keeps the momentum of “Believe For It” vigorous and tracking upward on the Christian Charts. But, it’s the many testimonies of Winans’ fans and followers sharing their stories of how the song has touched their hearts and changed their lives that is at the core success of this single and album.  For Winans, singing is always about spreading the good news of the gospel, encouraging people to trust God, believe, and never give up.

As the 12-time Grammy winner reflects on the achievement of her 11th solo album, she has this to say, “I’m thrilled with the success of ‘Believe For It’ because I think the message of the song is more important today than ever before.  I celebrate reaching Top Ten and the millions of views the videos have received – not because it elevates me in any way – but because the songs promote the truth of the Gospel and the hope we have in Christ.”
