BeBe & CeCe Winans/Mary Mary

7:30 p.m. Sunday, April 3. The Fox Theatre, 527 North Grand Boulevard.



No clan since the Staples has mixed R&B, gospel and good genetics as successfully as the Winans family. The Detroit-based brood has produced many celebrated gospel stars, though the sibling duo of BeBe & CeCe Winans has had the most longevity, both solo and as a pair. 2009's aptly named Still was the Winans' first album together in fifteen years and garnered awards and praise both inside and outside of the gospel community. Listening to the group's single "Close To You," it's not hard to hear why: It's a smooth, breezy jam that works as both a lover's ode and a more spiritual hymn. Mary Mary, another sibling gospel act featuring sisters Erica and Tina Atkins-Campbell, will also perform.
