About Marvin Winans
Yet another member of the first family of contemporary black gospel music, Marvin Winans, the fourth of 10 children, grew up singing in the church with his twin brother, Carvin. His other brothers, Ronald and Michael, performed throughout the Detroit area and earned an opening slot for gospel godfather Andrae Crouch in 1979, who later signed them to Light Records as the Winans. Having lent his talents as a vocalist, songwriter and producer to a number of projects over the years, Marvin Winans chose to devote his efforts to the ministry in 1989, founding the Perfecting Church, a congregation that has since grown to over 3,000 members. The 2007 album Alone But Not Alone was his latest project since the last Winans recording (Heart & Soul) over a decade ago.
