    How I Got Over (Destiny Joy Records) is the name of Winans' self-produced CD that was released on August 25, 2009.
    More Details Hide Details The eleven-song project is a well-blended collage of traditional and urban contemporary songs. Her first radio single, “How I Got Over” is Winans’ personal testimony. Taking a line from an old hymn classic favorite, Winans creates a brand new song that celebrates her victories, faith and trust in God. It opens with an upbeat, but old school church flavor and breaks down into a contemporary vamp before she slams a closing with her nephew, Tim Bowman, Jr. who lays down some jazzy scats. The song's music video was shot in the basement of Winans' home. This album gained Vickie Winans a Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Gospel Album. Most recently, Vickie Winans requested and was granted a release from her recording contract with Verity Records in order to pursue her independent venture, Destiny Joy Records. The new label's name is very personal to Vickie Winans:

    Age 49
    After a four-year hiatus, in 2003 Winans release Bringing It All Together which featured "Shake Yourself Loose", written and produced by her son, Mario.
    More Details Hide Details Leaving nothing to chance, she dipped deep into her own pockets to create a marketing strategy that most gospel labels would never spend on a project. She spent well over $200,000 creating five music videos, hiring independent radio teams, promotional marketing teams and creating a 50 city-promotional concert tour to launch the CD. The strategy paid off as the album debuted at #1 on the Billboard gospel music charts. It spent nine weeks at #1 and a full year in the Top 10. The album also garnered 8 Stellar Award nominations, winning 5, and a Grammy nomination. Woman to Woman: Songs of Life, was released on August 8, 2006. The First 8 Track's of The Disk Number 2 on Woman to Woman: Songs of Life was Recorded Live at The House Of Hope In Chicago, Illinois.

  • 2000
    Age 46
    Vickie Winans' troubles with recording companies continued after Intersound/CGI closed and released her from her contract. In early 2000, she signed with Tommy Boy Gospel.
    More Details Hide Details Woman To Woman was scheduled as the third album in the trilogy, but the label folded before the album could be released.
  • 1999
    Age 45
    Intersound/CGI realized and capitalized on Winans' star quality by planning to release three Vickie Winans albums in 1999; a May release of Live In Detroit II, followed by the Share The Laughter comedy album in July and capping the year with an October release called "Woman To Woman: Songs Of Survival".

  • 1997
    Age 43
    She ran across a James Cleveland classic tune from the 1960s called "Long As I Got King Jesus" and used it as the lead single and megahit for a traditionally-styled album in 1997 titled Live In Detroit.
    More Details Hide Details Recorded live at Bishop Andrew Merrit's Straight Gate Church, Winans recorded simple arrangements of "Great Is Thy Faithfulness", Bill Gaither's "Because He Lives" and Candi Staton's "The Blood Rushes". Another James Cleveland classic, "No Cross, No Crown", was also a hit from the album. Intersound/CGI financed a video for "Long As I Got King Jesus", that boosted the sales of the album. It eventually sold 200,000 units. The album earned Winans a Grammy nomination for Best Soul Gospel Album and two Stellar Award nominations for Best Female Vocalist and Best Video ("Long As I Got King Jesus").
  • THIRTIES
  • 1992
    Age 38
    They were able to book Vickie on Queen Latifah, various BET shows and Jenny Jones, among other high-profile television programs and got her the most press coverage she'd had since she toured with the Winans Family Tour in 1992.
    More Details Hide Details Live in Detroit II was a major success, reaching #3 on the gospel charts, only failing to top the charts because of Kirk Franklin's success with The Nu Nation Project in the same year. Share the Laughter did not do as well, but for a standup comedy album, its sales were far from disappointing considering Intersound/CGI was on its last legs and soon closed.
  • 1991
    Age 37
    Her 1991 MCA release was The Lady which included production by R.
    More Details Hide Details Kelly, husband Marvin Winans, and her son Mario. The nine-song album was missing the name Jesus and controversially contained a rendition of West Side Storys "Somewhere". MCA then sent Vickie to that year's Stellar Awards television broadcast with dancers - a move that shocked the conservative Christian community, leading to the Winans having to issue a public apology. This controversy led to the Gospel community not backing the album, and after also failing to break through on contemporary R&B radio, MCA eventually dropped Winans from their roster. The Lady, also, netted a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Soul Gospel Album. After 3 years without a recording contract, former Word Records executive James Bullard signed Vickie to Intersound Records, an Atlanta-based classical recording label, for which he was forming a gospel music division. Her label debut Vickie Winans rose to #10 on the gospel charts, spawning the hits Work It Out and We Shall Behold Him. However, she developed nodes on her vocal cords, causing her to fail to hit all the right notes in her re-recording of We Shall Behold Him.
  • 1987
    Age 33
    The Winans became the best selling act on their record label, Light Records, and this enabled husband Marvin to secure her a recording contract. Her solo album, Be Encouraged was released in 1987 and became a major gospel hit.
    More Details Hide Details The LP included a cover of Dottie Rambo's, "We Shall Behold Him", as well as "First Trumpet Sound," a gospelized remake of Gladys Knight & The Pips' "Midnight Train To Georgia." Be Encouraged netted a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Soul Gospel Album, a Stellar Award for Album of the Year, and an Excellence Award for Best Female Contemporary Artist. Her follow-up album, Total Victory was markedly less successful, due in part to the financial floundering of Light Records after its flagship group, The Winans, left to join Quincy Jones' Qwest Records. In 1990, Vickie signed, not to a gospel recording company but to Geffen Records. Unfortunately, Geffen was bought by Universal Records and Vickie's contract was shifted to sister label MCA Records. Dealing with a company that hadn't signed her, she found herself being subtly pushed to tone down the Christian message in her music. "They don't tell you, but you get the vibe," she said in 1999. "I don't ever, ever, ever want to be in that predicament again. It's one thing when you just sing a song where you don't use the actual name of Jesus, but it's a whole 'nother thing when you TRY not to use the name. For me, the name of Jesus will never be distasteful in my mouth. He's always the answer".
  • TWENTIES
  • 1978
    Age 24
    After high school, she married Bishop Ronald Brown of Faith Tabernacle Deliverance Temple in Orangeburg, South Carolina. Together they had a son, Mario Brown, now known as Mario Winans. In June 1978, she married Marvin Winans of the popular gospel group, The Winans. With Marvin she had two sons, Josiah Winans, and Marvin Jr. (Coconut). At the end of 2003, Vickie married businessman, Joe McLemore. Vickie lost her mother, Evangelist Mattie Bowman, on December 12, 2006. In 1995 Vickie and Marvin Sr. divorced after almost 18 years of marriage.
    More Details Hide Details The stress of the divorce caused her to develop ulcers on her esophagus, diabetes and to gain weight. "I was sick from the stress of the divorce." Eventually, Vickie regained her health and re-energized her career. It was her marriage to Marvin that led Vickie to consider a career in music. She was asked to, and joined, Winans Part II, a group that included then in-laws BeBe and CeCe Winans and brother Daniel Winans. However, the group never took off as BeBe and CeCe left to join the PTL Singers of the long-running Christian television show, The PTL Club.
