First Listen: CeCe Winans back after three years with "Believe For It"

(February 7, 2021) CeCe Winans created an absolute classic album the last time that we heard from her in 2017. Let Them Fall In Love dropped at the start of that year when the world seemed turned upside down, but it showcased the power for music - and gospel music particularly - to be a healing agent. Let Them Fall In Love was a critical and commercial success, earning Winans multiple awards.

So, the question becomes: What does this member of gospel music’s royal family do for an encore? Well, she starts by making some history with her latest recording, the live album Believe for It. The album is the first live praise album recorded in Nashville. That’s an amazing thought when you consider all of the concerts that have been held in Music City over the years. We know from Winans’ 2017 album that she likes to go big, and that is what listeners will hear on this 12-track live recording that is scheduled to drop on March 12.

That is also what we hear on this First Listen, which is a sneak preview of the title track. Backed by a choir, Winans rises to the occasion vocally on this praise and worship anthem. And “Believe For It” is a song with a message that is meant for the time in which we live. The single is one that encourages listeners to believe in God’s word and assurances no matter what life throws at them. We learned from last year that life can throw an awful lot at us, and on this powerful praise and worship anthem Ce Ce Winans reminds believers that all things are possible if we believe. Check out “Believe For It” here.
