Winans (74) was admitted to Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak on Sept. 30.

According to the news outlet, Winans visited the doctor the morning of Sept. 30 and stopped to have breakfast at a restaurant. On the way to his vehicle, he became disoriented and fell in the restaurant parking lot. He was taken to Beaumont Hospital by ambulance. On November 3rd Winans suffered a second stroke and subsequently suffered two more.
“As a believer, the Bible says to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I want my dad to live to be 80, 90 or 100 if he so desires,” adding, “I don’t believe this life is it,” Pastor Marvin Winans told the Detroit News.
The Detroit News also reported that Marvin Winans said his father entertained other patients and medical staff with his praise and worship while in the hospital
“He was hollering out, ‘Thank you, Jesus’ and ‘Yes, Lord.’ We told people if he hollers ‘Yes, Lord,’ don’t get alarmed, just say ‘Yes, Lord.'”
In all, the Winans family has won 35 Grammy Awards. David and Delores met while singing in a traveling Gospel choir. The couple recorded as Mom & Pop Winans. They had 10 children including The Winans (brothers Marvin, Carvin, Michael and the late Ronald Winans, who died of a heart attack in 2005). Other family acts include Daniel Winans, Vickie Winans (daughter-in-law), brother and sister BeBe and CeCe Winans, and Angie & Debbie Winans. Their grandsons formed the third-generation group, Winans Phase 2 and grandson Marvin Winans Jr. has launched a solo career, and recently released a CD.
