CeCe Winans' New Album Release

Truly inspired in every sense of the word, Grammy Award Winner, CeCe Winans released her 8th solo project Thy Kingdom Come, today. The album is a celebration of the heart, soul and spirit of gospel music.
Purified, CeCe’s chart-topping 2005 release, saw the singer entertaining her pop sensibilities, proving once again that she excels at interpreting buoyant, life-affirming songs that a wider audience could embrace. But Thy Kingdom Come is different: it finds the gospel veteran going back to what she does best, namely, lavishing honor and glory upon the King of Kings, while rallying His people to live like royal priesthood.
Not one to pick favorites, she says she loves both ends of the spectrum. But something about singing for God and His church strikes a cord in her that not even the most uplifting, stirring pop tune can. “Singing for God and his people, It’s more home for me,” she says. “I’m most comfortable because I don’t even have to think hard. It’s something I love and I’ve been doing it for a long time. It comes from the heart. It touches the heart. I get lost in His will. I guess I have more fun shouting from the mountaintop.”
And shout she does; Thy Kingdom Come is one of the most empowering, moving collections of songs CeCe has recorded thus far.

CeCe has a wonderful new children's book out too, based on her beautiful song "Colorful World" from her last album, Purified, and it comes with a CD of the song. We had to buy it...the illustrations by Melodee Strong are beautiful and affirm that all the worlds children are beautiful, and that it only matters what's on the inside, not the outside. CeCe's is so multi-talented...every child should have her book.


Cece Winans is such a blessing,May God bless her ministry of song.
