Cece Winans Spreads Holiday Cheer with New Album, ‘Something’s Happening’

Tis’ the season to not only be jolly but to be excited for a new Christmas album from the 12 time Grammy award winning Gospel Artist, Cece Winans. Cece’s newest Christmas album is entitled, ‘Something’s Happening‘. This album includes 11 tracks full of songs that celebrate the reason for the season. Some of the track titles include ‘Giving Season’, ‘I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day‘, and a few classics such as ‘Feliz Navidad‘ and ‘Silent Night’ amongst other songs.

With the title track, ‘Something’s Happening’ Cece says it was recorded using a live orchestra. “We have a live orchestra throughout this record which is awesome. I got a chance to work with my son again and I just really wanted to capture something that would really embody the spirit of Christmas. There are a lot of hurting people. I think this Christmas probably more than ever people need to feel hope, they need to feel joy, they need to know that they’re not alone. I am excited about this christmas record to bring christmas cheer to people.”

As you may or may not know the Winans family is well known in the gospel music genre. The family has been recording gospel music for years , from Cece’s parents on down to her 9 siblings. Their family tradition around the holidays included performing onstage for Christmas concerts with her siblings Cece explains, “Memories of us doing our christmas concerts. We would do concerts with the whole family for christmas and we would have a blast singing together and worshipping the lord. Being raised to know the real meaning of christmas is Jesus; celebrating that and knowing what love is. And taking out time to love on other people is something that stayed with me.”

Since then the family has gotten older and the Winans family no longer practices music the way they once did. Currently Cece is one of the few still recording music but she says the annual tradition of live Christmas concerts has changed but the values remain the same. “It has changed but I’ve kept the same values. We don’t do concerts and all of that but we do start off with opening gifts as a family and talking about the real meaning of christmas and how we love one another. We definitely have the same values.”

“Something’s Happening” is exactly what Cece wants everyone to take away from this album. I want people to take from this album the title cut “Something’s Happening”. When Jesus came something really did happen. He came to change the world and he changed the world forever. He made a way for all of us. If you’re hurting Jesus came and he provided love and joy. Because of him we can celebrate. This goes for everyone.”

Before we finished our interview Cece dropped a few gems for our fellow Urban Girls who may need a little inspiration she said, “You have to believe in yourself. If you have a desire in your heart that God has put in your heart that you can do it. You have to be willing to step out and do things that are challenging. Things that may be uncomfortable, and if you out the work in you’re going to see the results. I love encouraging women to believe in them selves and to know that they have what it takes to make it. And to not settle, but every time you hear the words can’t let that be fuel to the fire that you can.”
