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."

Muze PNote Whether recording as part of the Winans group or with CeCe Winans as a duet, BeBe Winans has proven eminently capable of playing his role well in collaborations, but it's on his own that the contemporary gospel star truly displays all the multiple facets of his musical personality. BEBE LIVE AND UP CLOSE, as the title implies, offers as good a look at what makes BeBe's music tick as you're likely to get. There's the mellow, balladic, pop-tinged tones of "I Feel in Love With God," the churning gospel soul of "Love & Freedom," the very modern-sounding, synth-flavored R&B of the opening cut "Do You Know Him," and more. Winans even finds a way to give a fresh delivery to an old gospel warhorse like "Amazing Grace," making the listener feel as if they're hearing the old chestnut for the first time. That's the kind of gift that Winans possesses, and LIVE AND UP CLOSE affords the opportunity to witness the singer's magic in action.
