Gospel legend Bebe Winans is bringing a new and exciting show to DC this summer. The world-premiere musical Born for This: The BeBe Winan’s Story follows the remarkable journey of six-time Grammy Award winner BeBe Winans, who rose to fame with sister CeCe.
“If it wasn’t for Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker you wouldn’t have Bebe and Cece. Later we recorded an album together and we met Whitney and became family. It’s a coming age of story. Nine years I’ve been writing this story,” he said. “We had our first run in Atlanta and it was unbelievable.”
BeBe and CeCe Winans will be played by the brother and sister duo’s real-life niece and nephew, siblings Deborah Joy Winans (OWN’s Greenleaf) and Juan Winans.
Arena Stage will present Born For This July 1–August 28. Click the link above to hear the interview.
