In mainstream society, the lives of iconic figures are frequently given the Broadway Musical treatment. But such is uncommon in the gospel community.
But BeBe and CeCe Winans have pushed things to the next level with the announcement of a gospel musical about their now defunct duo.
Born for This: The BeBe Winans Story is coming to the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, GA Jan. 20-Feb. 14, 2016.
Charles Randolph-Wright, director of Motown the Musical, will direct the Broadway production chronicling the early days of the multiple GRAMMY® award winning brother and sister’s career.
The production, which is being called “a heart-warming and hilarious journey towards self-discovery,” is billed this way:
Detroit natives BeBe and CeCe Winans, youngest siblings of the Winans family dynasty, experience the ultimate in culture shocks when invited to join Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker’s Praise The Lord Network television show. The teenaged Winans become not only television celebrities, but also the “adopted children” of the Bakkers, integrating TV evangelism in Pineville, North Carolina.
As BeBe and CeCe encounter fame, fortune, and even a young Whitney Houston, BeBe must learn to balance his desire for success with his true calling.
