Vickie Winans

Vicki Winans ImageThe name “Winans” and gospel music are synonymous and Vickie Winans definitely lives up to her name after 24 years of continuously singing the good news of Jesus Christ.  The captivating vocals of this multitalented artist are like a soulful, fine tuned instrument that piques the emotions, and uplifts the spirit.  Vickie lends a high-powered, energetic, yet smooth and inspirational style as showcased in all her Grammy-nominated, Stellar Award and NAACP Award Winning albums. 

Vickie was just 8 years old when she sang her first solo in church.  “You couldn’t tell me I wasn’t ready for Carnegie Hall,” she laughs (not knowing she would actually sing there one day).  From then on, the biggest challenge for Aaron and Mattie Bowman was keeping a tight rein on their 7th child.

In addition to being one of the industry’s most beloved and respected artists, Winans is in firm control of her career.  She manages herself and is the President of Viviane, Inc., her Detroit-based management company where she books and performs approximately 200 shows a year.  However, Vickie says her favorite “job” is being the proud mother of her 2 sons, hit producers, and singers, and film producers, Mario “Skeeter” Winans and Marvin “Coconut” Winans, and “Nannie” to all of her beautiful grandchildren!

Reaching the impressive internationally renowned plateau took Winans an enormous amount of hard work, determination, sacrifice, and faith.  Realizing this, she insists she’s quite grateful, and takes nothing for granted.  “Although I’ve had my share of heartaches, pain, and sickness over the years, I know that God has truly blessed me.  It’s because of Him that I have a fantastic family, great friends, and a rewarding career!”

Vickie always seemed destined not only to succeed, but to excel in her successes.  Her vocal ministry, which has thrilled and inspired millions over the years, also paved the way for her in Broadway musicals, a host of other theatrical shows, and has made hundreds of television appearances.

Anyone who knows her or simply comes in close contact with her, experiences Vickie’s wonderful sense of humor, charming personality and vivacious, down-to-earth manner.  In fact, a key to her success is that her warm spirit immediately disarms the coldest stranger.  She is also called the “Joy Princess of Gospel,” dubbed so, because when she walks into a room, she brings with her joy, laughter, and praise.  We find those elements of delight in her energy and excitement to spread His message to people of all ages.   “The Bible says that a merry heart doeth good like medicine,” she quoted.  In essence Winans makes it safe to laugh and worship in the same setting.  However, her constant prayer is for the anointing of God to rest on her ministry so that burdens would be lifted, and yokes destroyed.

Vickie Winans’ love for God, life, children, her many friends and fans, her incredible music, and her enormous giving spirit continue to make her one of the best and brightest stars lighting gospel today.  On radio, TV, albums, videos, in concerts, plays and yes, even in future films, her extraordinary, multidimensional talents and unwavering faith in God keeps her on the positive path.  “Wherever the Lord leads, I will follow and I’m having a ball on the trip,” she concludes.
