Cece Winans is the daughter of David and Delores Winans; she was raised with her seven siblings – all of them are involved in the music industry. Her brothers founded a band named The Winans, which was awarded several times. At the age of 17, she matriculated from high school, and became a student at a beauty school, but she quit education and formed a duo together with her brother BeBe, but soon after, she decided to begin pursuing a career as a solo artist.

Cece’s professional musical solo career began in 1995, with the release of her debut album entitled “Alone In His Presence”, which achieved platinum status. Thanks to her talents, she won in the same year a Grammy Award as well as two Dove Awards – one of them was for the Female Vocalist of the Year – increasing her net worth by a large margin. She continued to line up success with her next album, “Everlasting Love” (1998), which achieved gold status. The album entered the Billboard chart, and included singles such as “Well Alright”, “Slippin”, and “On That Day”. In the same year, she recorded a holiday gift album entitled “His Gift”.

During 1999, Cece established his own record label “PureSprings Gospel”, under which she released her fourth album “Alabaster Box”, achieving gold status in the US. In order to promote her career, she organized a concert in the following year, after which she released her next album “Cece Winans”, with such singles as “Anybody Wanna Pray”, and “Say A Prayer”, contributing a lot to the size of her net worth. Prior to her sixth album “Throne Room” (2003), she took a break, but the album achieved gold status, and in the US was sold over 380,000 copies.

Before the next decade, she released four albums, including “Purified”, and “Thy Kingdom Come”, on which she collaborated with her nephew Mario Winans. Beside that, she also recorded the duet “Count On Me”, with Whitney Houston; the single was certified gold, reaching No. 8 at the Billboard Hot 100, and the same place on the Billboard R&B Singles chart, increasing further her net worth.

Apart from her successful career as a musician, Cece is also known as an author, who has published three books – “On A Positive Note” (2000), “Throne Room: Ushered Into The Presence Of God” (2004), and “Always Sisters: Becoming The Princess You Were Created To Be” (2007) – all of which added to her net worth.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on the late Whitney Houston, who was her best friend]: We're like sisters. We laugh forever, have a good time.
2[on wanting the children available to travel with her]: These are the years that I need watch them the most. They're going through little adolescent changes; they're growing up, and it's real important I'm not away from them for long periods of time. Sometimes, I want to make them go with me whether they want to or not. Home-schooling has allowed me to do that.
3[on her children carrying the tradition, just as it happened with her own family]: They love dancing, singing and acting. Alvin's been doing commercials since he was a toddler. He had a part in Oliver, and Ashley was in Annie. They love being on stage.
4[on her husband]: Alvin's always been an easy person to get along with. We like to have a good time. Before we got married, I asked, "Do you like to be happy? Because I like to be happy." Life is too short not to be happy. I like to laugh a lot.
5[In 1998]: As an artist, I want to grow, I want to try different things. So if a good script comes along and I feel good about it, I'll go for it.
