What better way to add to a legacy other than passing the torch to those coming behind you? The ministry and music heritage of CeCe Winans has somehow managed to get stronger with time. To know CeCe, is to love her, and no one knows that better than her devoted supporters who have watched her career sky-rocket over the years. It is CeCe’s consistent display of living that is proclaimed in such classic songs as: “Alabaster Box, “More Than What I Wanted” and current classic, “Believe For It.”
Winans opens the treasure chest to her childhood and early memories of being surrounded by a community of faith in her sixth book, Believe For It: Passing On Faith To The Next Generation (K-LOVE Books). The 223 page book assembles a series of events and experiences in the singer’s life that clearly explains why she is so firmly anchored in her spiritual beliefs. The common thread throughout the narrative is that everyone has responsibility in passing on their faith and promoting healthy intergenerational relationships within family and close circles of friends. On Tuesday, September 20th the pre-order campaign for the book kicks off, offering a free audiobook for all advanced purchases before the November 15th release date. All customers who pre-order the book and redeem their order will be able to hear the voice of Winans narrating her journey of faith and later receive the printed copy of the book for their reading pleasure. CeCe’s latest literary offering is available everywhere books are sold, but to pre-order go to www.cecewinans.com.
“We all have been influenced by those who came before us,” says Winans. “You don’t have to be related by blood to have a spiritual influence on someone’s life.”
In keeping with the book‘s theme, the third single from the Believe For It live recording, “Goodness of God” has turned into an anthem of sorts and is being sung in churches throughout the U.S. and abroad. Due to its overwhelming popularity a new music video was released on September 14. Directed by Calvin Nowell of Cmon Creative, the video celebrates the legacy of Winans’ career and the importance of healthy generational connections. Video: https://youtu.be/9sE5kEnitqE .
