BeBe Winans' new album "Dream" will be available in stores February 22, 2005 on Sony Music.
On the heels of the breakout success of his best-selling holiday album, My Christmas Prayer (which topped four separate Billboard catalog charts in December), Gospel legend BeBe Winans will release his first studio album in four years on February 22, 2005, just in time to celebrate Black History Month.
In these uncertain times, people look to things of substance to provide solace, and BeBe's inspirational new album, "Dream," is just that. Fromthe reassuring "Help Is On The Way," to the embracing "Safe From Harm," to the album's inspiring centerpiece, "I Have a Dream," BeBe Winans has created an album that truly means something.
The album's first single is the modern Gospel hymn "Safe From Harm," a magnetic song made even more relevant in light of these trying times. Its message reaches beyond the borders of the music world, touching the hearts and minds of those who need words of hope and reassurance.
"Safe From Harm" is the #1 most added song at Gospel Radio this week, with 12 adds. The first single for urban adult radio is "Love Me Anyway," which showcases the singer's skill at marrying the universality of secular and spiritual love.
"Dream" is BeBe Winans' first release on his own The Movement Group (TMG) label, which he founded two years ago. It is also his first release in partnership with Still Waters, the brand-new inspirational division of Hidden Beach Recordings, home to such standout artists as Jill Scott, Mike Phillips and Kindred The Family Soul.
The album also features as its centerpiece "I Have a Dream," a moving number comprised entirely of text from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. It is presented with the authorization of the King Estate and is the first time the King Estate has allowed a song to be released that contains words entirely taken from Dr. King's speech.
For his groundbreaking work as a Gospel/R&B vocalist, writer, and producer, BeBe Winans has won four Grammy Awards, ten Dove Awards, six Stellar Awards, two NAACP Awards, and a Soul Train Award.
A member of the famed Winans family, BeBe Winans teamed up with sister CeCe Winans for their 1986 debut album. The duo recorded a total of five albums, earning two Grammys together, before parting to work on solo projects.
In 1997, BeBe Winans debuted with a self-titled album, and followed it with 2000's "Love And Freedom," and 2003's concert recording "Live And Up Close".
Most recently he has released a Christmas album entitled "My Christmas Prayer," which features a duet with Matchbox 20's Rob Thomas.
In addition to his own work, BeBe Winans has contributed songs and vocals to projects by a diverse array of other artists, including Brandy, Dave Koz, Hezekiah Walker, Kelly Price, Yolanda Adams, and Stephanie Mills.
