Product Overview

BeBe Winans' career in music and ministry can be described as both groundbreaking and bridge-building. While helping to define a contemporary path for gospel music, BeBe has created new connections between gospel and R&B, making peers and fans alike recognize this singer/songwriter/producer as a modern-day music pioneer. BeBe's sophomore Motown release, BeBe Live And Up Close, is both a retrospective and a look ahead. The new project combines fresh interpretations of hits from his two solo albums and the ever-popular BeBe and CeCe Winans' songbook, with exciting stage debuts of new songs, as well as two outstanding new studio tracks. "Do You Know Him" fuses a bubbly new groove with irresistible retro echoes of the Chi-Lites and Al Green, while "Lay Them Down" wraps a message of comfort in a warm coat of acoustic guitar and harmonies sung by BeBe and guest Eric Dawkins (Dawkins & Dawkins). Both tunes were written by BeBe and produced by Warryn "Baby Dub" Campbell (Mary Mary, Yolanda Adams, Luther Vandross, Angie Stone, Sisqo, O-Town), one of BeBe's collaborators from his previous Motown album, Love & Freedom. In live performances, BeBe unveils a beautiful new heartland-influenced arrangement of "Amazing Grace," and an inspiring ballad, "I Fell In Love With God," while offering some straight common sense in "Humpty Dumpty." Margaret Bell-Byars steps out of the chorus for "I Wanna Be," the 1997 U.K. No. 1 single and pop crossover hit in Europe for BeBe and British girl-group Eternal. Little sister Debbie Winans-Lowe joins BeBe for an extended medley of the BeBe and CeCe classics: "Heaven," "Meantime," "Celebrate New Life" and "Lost Without You."
