CeCe Winans Nominated for 2020 Grammy Best Gospel Album

Nashville, TN - Wednesday morning it was announced that the best-selling and most-awarded female gospel artist of all time, CeCe Winans, is on the nominees list for the 62nd GRAMMY Awards. Winans is nominated for the Best Gospel Album for her Something’s Happening! A Christmas Album. A win in this category would add to Winan’s previous twelve GRAMMY wins.

This nomination follows after she was honored Tuesday night at the NATD Honors Gala in the Hermitage Hotel Ballroom in Nashville, TN. Gospel Music Association (GMA) President Jackie Patillo presented Winans the award, noting that Winans brings “grace notes to life and inspires through song.” The Nashville Association of Talent Directors (NATD) chooses honorees based off of their astonishing accomplishments and service to the Nashville community. 

The best-selling and most-awarded female gospel artist of all time, CeCe Winans has long since cemented her status as one of the most accomplished and celebrated women in modern music history. Recording and performing as both a solo artist and as a duo with her brother BeBe, CeCe has influenced a generation of gospel and secular vocalists over the course of her astonishing career. She’s been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the Nashville Music City Walk of Fame, in addition to being named a Trailblazer of Soul by BMI and garnering multiple NAACP Image Awards, Soul Train Awards, Essence Awards, and more. She’s sold in excess of 5 million albums in the US, topping the Gospel charts repeatedly while crossing over with smashes like “Count On Me,” her stunning duet with Whitney Houston from the multi-platinum ‘Waiting To Exhale’ soundtrack, which sold 2 million copies and cracked the Top 10 on the Pop, R&B, and Adult Contemporary charts.

The recording industry's most prestigious award, the GRAMMY, is presented annually by The Recording Academy. A GRAMMY is awarded by The Recording Academy's voting membership to honor excellence in the recording arts and sciences. It is truly a peer honor, awarded by and to artists and technical professionals for artistic or technical achievement, not sales or chart positions (GRAMMY Awards Voting Process). The annual GRAMMY Awards presentation brings together thousands of creative and technical professionals in the recording industry from all over the world.
