Yahoo LAUNCHCAST Song Of The Day-Winans Phase 2
Artist:Winans Phase 2
Song:Come On Over
Album:We Got Next
The group Winans Phase 2 proves that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. They are all third generation members of the Winans gospel music family from Detroit. You have Marvin Winans Jr., Mike Winans Jr. and his brother Juan Winans and Carvin Winans III. All are sons of the group known as The Winans. As teenagers they did a TV commercial in Detroit and were spotted and singed to Word's contemporary label Myrrh. Their 1999 CD We Got Next did very well but they've never done a follow up. Come on Over is an excellent song written and produced by Narada Michael Walden. Mike Winans released his own CD called Only Me and he also worked with Mario Winans on New Edition's 2004 reunion CD. BTW, Mario Winans isn't a Winans. He's the son of Vickie Winans and her first husband and became a Winans when Vickie married Marvin. Like his mom, he only uses the name. Marvin Winans Jr. produced a CD for his mom Vickie Winans and it looks like his debut CD Image Of A Man is coming soon. So there's talent everywhere in that family. Winans Phase 2 did have a very popular music video for It's Alright (Send Me) featuring Samuel L. Jackson. I could only find it on this Gospel House video also featuring videos by Da Truth & Onitsha. Winans Phase 2 is the third video.
