A Night With BeBe & Friends -VaShawn Mitchell Joins BeBe Winans’60th Birthday Concert Lineup

Benjamin “BeBe” Winans, six-time Grammy Award Winner, multi-platinum selling artist and
songwriter, is coming to perform in the UK for one night only on Friday 16th September 2022 to
celebrate his 60th birthday. We are pleased to announce an exciting addition to the already
impressive concert lineup – VaShawn Mitchell! Multiple Grammy, Dove and Stellar award nominee
and winner VaShawn may be the youngest member of this impressive group of artists but has already
achieved phenomenal success. His hit single “Nobody Greater”, which topped the Gospel Billboard
charts for nine weeks consecutively, made him the star of the 27th Stellar Awards where he walked
away with an incredible six statues and 11 nods, placing him firmly among gospel music giants.

Mitchell’s twenty year career has established him as writer and producer of inspiring power-filled
songs that are a fusion of pop, rock and gospel with that distinctive Chicago gospel sound. He most
recently released an album in 2019 entitled “Elements” and “Home for Christmas” EP at the end of
last year. In addition to VaShawn Mitchell, BeBe will also be joined by his talented sibling Marvin L
Winans. Other names gracing the line up on the night include musical legends such as Karen Clark
Sheard whose story was turned into biographical screenplay “The Clark Sisters: The First Ladies of
Gospel” (2020), charting the story of how Karen and her sisters rose from obscurity to become the
highest selling gospel music group in history.

And if your head isn’t already spinning from these prospects, there is yet more! Donnie McClurkin,
another Grammy award winning gospel artist known for his groundbreaking “Live in London” album,
will also be performing. London Community Gospel Choir, with whom BeBe has a long-standing
association, will join him on the night to perform a cover of Luther Vandross’ inspirational hit ‘Power of
Love/Love Power’ almost thirty years after it was first performed at the Royal Albert Hall. Not one to
be missed, the evening is truly set to provide an unparalleled musical experience.

BeBe has a history of celebrating his birthdays in grand style, holding concerts for his 45th and 50th in
New York, with star studded casts, filled with popular and gospel singing legends as well as
Hollywood A-listers. His previous birthday concerts have attracted iconic performers such as Stevie
Wonder, Glady Knight, Quincy Jones and Dionne Warwick to mention a few.

As a younger member of one of gospel music’s all time greatest musical families, BeBe formed a
successful duo with his sister Cece Winans. BeBe numbers among the first gospel artists to crossover
into mainstream recognition, releasing a total of five albums together with Cece and winning multiple
awards including Grammy’s and Dove Awards.

BeBe Winans is turning 60 on the 17th September 2022. He has stepped away from live shows in
recent years to focus on showcasing his wider repertoire working with Oprah Winfrey as executive
music producer for OWN Network hit series “Greenleaf” (2019-2020). BeBe also released his first solo
Billboard gospel number one hit with ‘He Promised Me’ (2018) and has become known as Heart &
Soul Channel radio show host for Sirius/XM Radio Networks. BeBe Winans also previously starred in
Broadway’s “The Color Purple” as Harpo (2008), alongside Chaka Khan who played his wife, Sofia.

Reaching the age of 60 is considered in some cultures as having completed a full life cycle, BeBe is
set to celebrate his diamond birthday in style as he looks to the next chapter. This may very well be
the biggest gospel celebration of recent times in the UK and you’re invited!
