One of gospel music’s foremost vocalists, Winans — alongside a who’s who of gospel music’s biggest names and tastemakers — took to the stage at the very church he planted in 1989, Perfecting Church in Detroit, Michigan, to record The Praise & Worship Experience, a display of the singer’s love of church music.

“The first thing I hope people walk away with from this Experience is the joy and the presence of the Lord,” says Winans, who self-produced the album. “I also hope people walk away more intelligent with respect to gospel music — that it’s not just one genre, but a broad spectrum of praise and worship.”
