The multiple award- winning singer CeCe Winans has emerged from the studio with a glorious arrangement of tracks just in time for the holiday season. Once again, Winans team up with son Alvin Love III to present, Something’s Happening! A Christmas Album (Puresprings/Thirty Tigers).
The mother-son team walked away with two Grammy awards for their collaboration on, Let Them Fall in Love earlier this year. The duo snagged Best Gospel Album and Best Gospel Performance/Song in top categories. Love penned five new songs for this spirit-filled Christmas album, incorporating five classic tunes with a distinctive musical twist. He went the extra mile and invited the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Tim Akers to make a guest appearance on the album recorded at Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall in Zagreb, Croatia.
The melodious sound of “This World Will Never Be the Same” written by Alvin Love III, reminds listeners how much the world has changed, but gives us hope for a better tomorrow. The whimsical, “Giving Season” paints a vivid picture of Christmastime and the spirit of giving. While the classic, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” delivers familiarity in the beginning, but midway through the song the tempo changes to flavorful and rhythmic percussions. In a festive contemporary seasonal carol, “It’s Christmas,” Alvin Love’s crafted tune will have you swaying and singing along.
