Inspirational singer, CeCe Winans, has uplifted and encouraged audiences for over two decades with her angelic and powerful voice.  

Her history has not gone unnoticed and on Friday, January 16, 2009 at Rocketown in Nashville, BMI will honor Winans with a Trailblazer Award for her accomplishments in the recording industry.  
At the impressionable age of 16, Winans was offered a spot with the PTL Singers which required her to move away from home. However, Winans’ parents would not allow her to accept the position unless accompanied by her brother, BeBe.  Little did anyone know that the unsolicited opportunity would be such a groundbreaking move; posturing the duo to become instrumental in broadening the boundaries of Gospel music. 
A trailblazer is best described as an innovative leader in a field; a pioneer. Winans’ contemporary and worshipful style of music has broken traditional barriers, her entrepreneurial adeptness and heart for humanity appropriately defines her as a trailblazer. Gospel music power houses Donald Lawrence and Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark are also slated to receive an award.
All roads lead to Nashville this week for Gospel’s biggest night, The 24th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards at The Grand Ole Opry House on Saturday, January 17 at 4:00pm (CT). Winans kicks off the year with four (4) Stellar nods: Female Vocalist of the Year, Contemporary Female of the Year, Urban Single Performance of the Year, “Waging War” and Praise & Worship CD of the Year, for “Thy Kingdom Come.”
