CeCe Winans began her musical career at the impressionable age of 16 years old and her path has taken her around the world sharing the good news of the gospel in song. Along the way she has managed to rack up 15 Grammy Awards, 31 Grammy nominations, 23 Dove Awards and 15 Stellar Awards, but with the impressive stats of her latest album, Believe For It, the multi-award winning singer may have to consider making room for another trophy case.

The song continues to generate steam at gospel radio and has a new music video set to premiere this fall. Directed by Calvin Nowell of Cmon Creative, the “Goodness of God” video celebrates the legacy of Winans’ career and the importance of healthy generational connections.
