From the Soundboard is a program that usually focuses on concerts regardless of genre. This is where the artist and (or) group perfects the art of the call and response with its audience. This week we continue to focus on artists who survived the COVID-19 virus. On Tuesday, August 18, @ midnight (that’s Monday into Tuesday), we focus on Gospel / R&B vocalist, Bebe Winans.
Critically acclaimed inspirational, R&B, and gospel vocalist BeBe Winans is best known as part of the celebrated Winans family. Similar to the Jackson family’s impact on Pop music, and the Carter and Cash families’ history with Country, the Winans family is truly gospel music royalty. Also an award-winning songwriter and producer, BeBe Winans has achieved notoriety both as part of the hit-making duo BeBe & CeCe Winans and as a solo artist. “I’m on a mission to share these songs with as many people as possible,” Winans says. “As a nation, we are going through hard times; people are in need of an uplift. My hope is that these songs can be that, and much more.” [New Release Today]
