Yahoo LAUNCHCAST Song Of The Day-Marvin Winans
Song:Peace & Love
Album:Alone But Not Alone
Of course Marvin Winans is one of the Winans gospel music family from Detroit. This is his new CD. He was born Mar. 8, 1958 in Detroit. He is the fourth of the ten Winans siblings and twin brother to Carvin. Of course he was part of The Winans with brothers Ron, Mike & Carvin in the 80s & 90s. He was also married to Vickie Winans. By the time The Winans split up, Marvin had already founded the Perfecting Praise Church. And though he has recorded occasionally, he has spent most of his time as pastor of his church. Alone But Not Alone was released Sept. 27 on PureSprings Gospel, the label owned by sister Cece Winans. Marvin produced the CD with veteran songwriter producer Tommy Sims who has also worked with Cece. Marvin is a fabulous writer and this has a whole bunch of new songs. But Peace & Love is a song that appeared on the 2003 various artists comp Spirit Rising Vol. 2 and it's a great Tommy Sims song. So it's great to see Marvin Winans recording again. He sounds great and here's footage from the Marvin Winans CD release party in Atlanta with a performance at the end of the video courtesy of ROCspace.org.
