Born in Detroit, Michigan, CeCe Winans was the eighth of ten children in the Winans family, one of gospel music's most renowned musical families. Her first solo album, Alone In His Presence, is platinum certified and took home a Grammy for Best Contemporary Soul Gospel Album in 1995. CeCe's next solo outing, 1998's Everlasting Love, became the nation's #1 Top Gospel Album, a feat repeated with 1999's Alabaster Box and 2004's Throne Room, both certified gold.
Thy Kingdom Come features CeCe back to worship. The music is praise and worship and was produced by Tommy Sims & Mano "Luther Hanes" with several songs written by CeCe.

CECE’S SEMINAL QUALITIES SHINE| Posted September 29, 2008
Though rumors have persisted of a BeBe & CeCe Winans reunion, the latter of the powerful pair remains in solo ranks (at least for the time being). Thy Kingdom Come marks the vocal diva’s first new collection in three years, though the time off seems to only have refined her already sterling pipes. Within seconds of the lead track. “Holy Father God,” it’s apparent why Winans is such a seminal force within the R&B and gospel communities, which not only stems from her ability to flawlessly interpret timeless messages of truth, but to also soothe with her soul radiant charisma. The lively “Forever” continues in that tradition, combing her stunning voice with several spoken word segments, all wrapped around an exuberant choir.
As the disc continues, CeCe shifts seamlessly between vibrant congregational moments (“The Coast is Clear,” “Waging War”) and personal moments of prayer (the title track, “Bless His Holy Name”). However, she’s equally capable of meeting non-believers wherever they may be, oftentimes bearing resemblance to her dear friend Whitney Houston throughout the Waiting To Exhale-worthy ballad “The Test of Time” to the joyous urban pop of “A Million Miles”—songs that reinforce her already reputable reach.
