Gospel music veteran BeBe Winans makes chart history as he becomes the only artist to have at least a #1 on the Gospel charts in the 1980s, '90s, 2000s, '10s & now '20s. This week, Winans scores his third No. 1 on Billboard's Gospel Airplay chart as "In Jesus Name" reaches the top of the survey. Along with his three Gospel Airplay No. 1s (2000s-'20s), he notched at least one Top Gospel Albums No. 1 in each decade from the '80s through the 2000s.
"In Jesus' Name" is taken from Winans' 2019 studio album Need You, which hit No. 3 on Top Gospel Albums that September, becoming his 15th top 10. The album features 11 tracks, a glorious mix of Gospel standards, his unique style of Gospel and R&B, some new sounds and a heartfelt cover of Luther Vandross', "Power of Love/Love Power," that caused Stevie Wonder to reach out during one of BeBe's radio interviews to say, "well done!"
Winans also offers three incredible collaborations on the project including, "He Promised Me" featuring the beautiful harmonies of Tobi and Tommie, which was also his first #1 single in his solo career, topping the Gospel airplay charts. His baby sister, Debbie Winans Lowe, also makes an appearance on "It's All Good," showcasing yet another melodious Winans voice to the world. He also flew all the way to Seoul, South Korea to record with Korean Soul, on "Laughter."
The members of Korean Soul, who performed for the first time ever as a group on ABC's "Strahan and Sarah" in June, are signed to a development deal with BeBe's "Destiny Productions," and recently were offered a recording contract. He also enlists the help of GRAMMY-Award winning artist, songwriter and producer Donald Lawrence on the project.
