I have said over and over again never let a chance pass you by. This weekend I will have the experience. I am hoping you get the chance to have the experience. What do you do when the greatest voices in Gospel hit the stage? You go of course!
R&B and Gospel icons BeBe & CeCe Winans and Mary Mary have jointly announced a series of upcoming major market US tour dates this April 2011. The duos re-unite following their spectacular holiday performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, where BeBe, CeCe, Erica and Tina dazzled the studio and TV audiences with a festive holiday medley, showcasing a collective talent unmatched throughout the world. That superstar ‘quartet’ will also be performing several songs together on this tour in addition to their respective hits and fan favorites.
After two decades of hits, BeBe & CeCe Winans are enjoying a remarkable career moment. Their first album together in 15 years – Still – is nominated for two Grammy Awards and eleven Stellar Awards, and is fast approaching gold. The album features the Billboard chart topping single, “Close To You,” as well as the Grammy-nominated “Grace.” The album landed on several Billboard year-end lists. Also, in the past year alone, BeBe & CeCe have performed on Oprah, Good Morning America and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In October 2011, the brother/sister duo will receive their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Columbia Records/Myblock Records artists Mary Mary, the gorgeous duo, sisters Erica and Tina-will release their new cd, Something Big, the long-awaited follow-up to The Sound, their multi-million selling, multi-award winning, groundbreaking previous CD. Something Big is slated for March 29, 2011 release. Produced by Warryn Campbell for Myblock Records and written by Mary Mary, anticipation for Something Big is shared by fans, label insiders and industry alike. In less than a decade, Erica and Tina have sold upward of five million albums and have amassed staggering totals of three Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, seven Dove Awards, a BET Award, two NAACP Image Awards, two Lady of Soul Awards, and ten Stellar Awards.
With powerful voices that soar, harmonies that chime and lyrics that touch the heart and soul, the songs on Something Big are instantly memorable. In a recent Billboard Magazine review of new single “I’m Walking,” R&B reporter Gail Mitchell noted, “The song’s synthesizer-accented, percolating rhythms are immediately arresting, and the mix is seamlessly strung together by the engaging vocal interplay. ’Walking’ is the pair’s latest track to leave the listener with a bounce in his or her step.” A Top 10 Urban AC and top 6 Gospel smash, “I’m Walking” landed on the pop charts within days of its release to that format.
Here is a little taste.
