CeCe Winans has been honored with the Aretha Franklin Icon Award at the 2023 Stellar Awards, a fitting tribute to her inspirational music, impressive vocals and ability to influence listeners.
Speaking after receiving the award, Winans said “I was extremely honored that Don Jackson, chairman and CEO of Central City Productions, presented me with this award. After 40 years in the music business, I don’t take anything lightly. I’m grateful when people want to pay tribute to me for what I’ve contributed to the music industry, but I know that recognition comes with a responsibility.
As I honor God in my private life, sometimes public acknowledgement follows. But either way, he gets the glory!”
Winans is currently preparing for additional performances on her “BELIEVE FOR IT” tour, with a highly anticipated date at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta on October 18th, 2023. The singer says the album and tour are sacred to her because she believes songs of love and hope are needed now more than ever.
