There is a big event going on in Memphis celebrating the legacy of The Winans! It’s a star-studded lineup! Looks like tickets are going fast if that’s your part of the world you better get in on the celebration quick!

The Winans are an American Gospel music quartet from Detroit, Michigan consisting of brothers Marvin, Carvin, Michael and Ronald Winans. Their first record, Introducing The Winans was produced in 1981. They performed vocals in This is America, Charlie Brown‘s segment “The Building of the Transcontinental Railroad” in 1989. Their style was noted for its crossover efforts and received airplay on R&B radio. The group’s last recording was in 1995, but they have subsequently been involved in various Winans family projects where they are credited as “The Winans” (e.g. November 2000’s Christmas: Our Gifts To You).
