CeCe Winans is simply unstoppable. Her voice seems to get more powerful over time and fans can’t get enough of the chart-topping live recording, “Believe For It.” The multiple award-winning singer recently added three more Grammys to her collection: Best Gospel Performance/Song “Never Lost”; Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song; “Believe For It” and Best Gospel Album.
“To God be the glory! This is amazing. Thank you to everyone who played and sang on this album. All the songs are just amazing. I am so humbled to win three more Grammys,” says Winans.
“Believe For It.” started as a long-awaited live recording and evolved into a musical gift that keeps on giving, transitioning from a stage to the studio, giving fans the best of both worlds. To create the deluxe edition, songs from the album were reproduced and arranged to present fresh studio-versions that are now available in the digital streaming format.
The new melodious single, “I’ve Got Joy,” (Fair Trade Services/Pure Spring Gospel, Inc.)
written by Phil Wickham and Kyle Lee, premiered on Entertainment Tonight and released to Christian radio on April 1; with a plan to go for adds on May 13. The 18 track deluxe edition features three new songs; the studio versions of “No Greater”, “I Have A Savior” and “I’ve Got Joy.”
