Eight-time Grammy Award(R) winner CeCe Winans has broken new ground as a superstar of gospel: her celebrated career includes platinum and gold albums, collaborations with Whitney Houston, and forays into television and the Broadway stage. Now CeCe Winans recalls a life full of blessings in this warm and intimate memoir.
"On a Positive Note" is CeCe's inspiring story of her journey from the projects of Detroit to international fame and award-winning success. She portrays how she took the brave step of leaving home, along with her brother BeBe, to work as a background singer on Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker's television program. She offers the courageous testimony of a rising recording star facing life-changing decisions, and tells the wonderful story of meeting the man who became her soul mate and husband. And finally, CeCe Winans shares a moving and candid account of her lifelong attempt, through times of tears and laughter, to sing of God's glory and live with His love in her heart.
A multiple Grammy, Dove(TM), Stellar(TM), and NAACP Image Award(TM) winner -- both on her own and in partnership with BeBe -- CeCe is also a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. CeCe's reflections offer a reassuring sense of companionship to women facing their own challenges, doubts, and hopes -- and an inspiration to keep the fires of faith burning bright.
Essence A praise song to God's glory. Publisher's Weekly Winans' simple, heartwarming telling of her story so far has the feel of two friends conversing over tea about their lives.
