The brother and sister duo were one of the first African American artists to receive significant airplay on contemporary Christian music radio stations. Together, they have received three Grammy Awards, nine Dove Awards, two NAACP Image awards, two Soul Train Music Awards, numerous Stellar Awards, three Gold albums, and one Platinum album.
Although they officially parted ways in 1995, to work on their solo careers, both artists went on to have successful solo careers. BeBe and CeCe Winans recorded twice as a duo during their hiatus – before reuniting for the 2009 album “Still,” which went on to rank as the #1 hit on the US Gospel chart and #2 on the R&B chart.
