It’s been an interesting journey for the performer, who is a member of a family that also includes the four-sibling The Winans, singing sisters Angie & Debbie, Grammy-nominated sister CeCe Winans, singing nephews Winans Phase II, and former sister-in-law Vickie Winans. After singing backup on other family projects, he teamed with sister CeCe for their 1986 debut album, but broke through to critical acclaim with their 1987 project Heaven, which earned them airplay on secular radio. The duo recorded a total of five albums and earned two Grammy Awards. In the ’90s BeBe and his sister decided to record their own projects, and BeBe debuted in 1997 with a self-titled album, and followed it with 2000’s Love And Freedom and 2003’s concert recording Live And Up Close. Along the way, he has contributed songs and vocals to projects by a diverse array of other artists, including Brandy, Dave Koz, Hezekiah Walker, Kelly Price, Yolanda Adams, and Stephanie Mills.

But now more than ever, it’s BeBe’s time.

Bebe says, For all the things that are happening, I did not plan that they would happen at the same time. I have a new album that will really bring us as a country together. It’s called “America America.” I’m going on tour with Dave Koz, who has been a great friend.

I have a tribute to my loving sister Whitney Houston. That has been very therapeutic for me to embrace that thing and come through on the other side. It’s called “The Whitney I Knew,” and it’s coming out in July [2012].

And last but not least, I’ve been working on a Broadway show about me and my family. And it’s odd and ironic that I’m presenting the “Porgy and Bess” company. The show I’m doing is like the Gershwin family. I’m very excited about it, and I’m excited to be here.
