Did you all catch CeCe Winans hosting TBN’s Praise The Lord last night?! WHEWWW! Good show.
The performances were, of course, awesome. Smokie Norful did some tracks from his latest album and did a great job. When he opened the show, the sound folks didn’t have things together, so he and his singers were a bit out of sync with the track (arrgghhh), but they got it together.
BeBe Winans joined his sister to sing their new single, “Close To You,” and I’m growing more anxious for the tour each time I see them! I’m cheesin’ even as I type this cuz it’s just soooo nostalgic. And, by the way, BeBe is like… hilarious. I loved their conversation.
Bishop Paul Morton also did a great job with “Cry Your Last Tear,” which he sang at Pop Winans’ homegoing service. He was cuttin’ up on stage, too, on his interview. I like him.
I think my fave part of the show, though, was to see Alvin Love, CeCe’s husband, talking about his role as husband and covering for a woman of God with such a great call on her life. I always see him, but haven’t heard him as much, so it was great to get his perspective. He said to CeCe: ”I understand your purpose, I understand what God has called you to do, and so I’m not intimidated by that… I do know who I am. I’m a child of God and God has placed me here to be a covering for you.”
And what’s crazier, he later said “I got saved two years before I met you… I didn’t know anything about holiness. I was straight from the world, and then… CeCe Winans!”
BOOM! They’ll be married 25 years next month and you can tell that they’re still absolutely in love with one another. Great stuff! Prayin’ for y’all…
