Gospel recording artist CeCe Winans garnered two wins at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards on Jan. 25.

Winans’ song, “Never Have To Be Alone” won the top award in the Best Gospel Performance/Song category. Her co-nominees were “Too Hard Not To” – Tina Campbell, “You Deserve It” – JJ Hairston & Youthful Praise featuring Bishop Cortez Vaughn, “Better Days” – Le’Andria, and “My Life” – The Walls Group.

For Best Gospel Album, Winans was again the winner for “Let Them Fall In Love.” That category featured strong contenders including “Crossover” — Travis Greene, “Bigger Than Me” — Le’Andria, Wins 2“Close” — Marvin Sapp, and “Sunday Song” — Anita Wilson.

Other winners in faith categories were Zach Williams – Best Contemporary Christian Music Album – “Chain Breaker,” Hillsong Worship – Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song – “What A Beautiful Name,” and Reba McEntire – Best Roots Gospel Album – “Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope.”

Winans, who now has 12 Grammys, said, “Let Them Fall in Love’ is my best project ever!  I am humbled and honored for two Grammy wins!  Thank you to the visionary, Alvin Love III and everyone who made this project what it is.  Also, thank you to the Recording Academy and my prayer is that the world will hear this music and fall in love!”

Equally elated, her son and co-producer, Alvin III, added, “What a night! Thanks to a team of the most talented musicians and engineers, ‘Let Them Fall in Love’ scored two Grammys. Thank you, Mom. Thank you, Jesus!”
