BeBe (Benjamin) and CeCe (Priscilla) Winans are the seventh and eighth of “Mom” and “Pop” Winans’ ten children, most of whom have had gospel music careers. Together, they have received several awards, including three Grammys. While BeBe and CeCe were in high school, four of their elder brothers formed the successful Gospel music group The Winans.
With the release of their second LP Heaven, they remained steadily popular with R&B audiences, spawning 12 R&B hit singles including two No. 1 singles. The pair became the first Gospel artists to see their album reach No. 1 on the Billboard sales charts in 1988. The title track also reached No. 12 on the Billboard R&B singles chart.
In 2009, Still was BeBe & CeCe’s first album in more than 15 years. Premiering 12 new songs, the album’s lead single was Close to You. The album won two Grammy Awards: Best Gospel Performance (the song Grace) and Best Gospel R&B Album.
