BeBe Winans: New Label & New CD July 19th

Bebe Winans, a critically acclaimed inspirational, R&B and gospel vocalist, best known as a member of the celebrated Winans family dynasty, has signed with Razor & Tie. BeBe Winans’ new album, America America, which honors our nation’s heritage, will be released by Razor & Tie on June 19th, 2012.

Cliff Chenfeld , co-owner Razor & Tie, comments “BeBe Winans is one of our country’s great singers and he has made a timely, necessary record that will speak to all Americans. It is a brave, powerful statement. We are very proud to be working with BeBe.”

“I am very excited about this new partnership with Razor & Tie,” Winans said. “They understand who I am as an artist and what I’m trying to achieve with America America. I appreciate their business model and look forward to working closely with them to bring this new record to the widest audience possible.”

 

America America, Winans’ seventh solo release, is comprised of nine classic songs including “America The Beautiful,” “Lift Every Voice,” “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and our national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner,” all imbued with his soul-stirring touches. Winans also wrote three new songs for the album – the beautifully hopeful title track and first single, “America America” (which will feature a touching companion video directed by David Warshauer [Katy Perry, Black Eyed Peas]), the upbeat “We’re The United States of America,” and the poignant “Ultimate Sacrifice,” dedicated to our troops.

“The inspiration for America America is the time we are living in,” Winans explains. “Sometimes, we forget that we are all Americans. At sporting events, when the national anthem is sung, everyone stands – black, white, rich, poor – everyone.”

Tour dates with Dave Koz beginning in June and continuing throughout the summer will be announced shortly. The pair worked together on the title track of Koz’s 1999 release, The Dance. Winans is expected to perform songs from America America as well as highlights from his impressive career
