BeBe started his career with his sister CeCe, and the duo would release several albums. They would then join “The PTL Club” as background vocalists when the show found interest in their abilities. They stayed in the show for five years, and recorded “Lord Lift Us Up” as part of PTL’s label, the success of which would lead to a full-length album that charted well. This then led them to decide to leave PTL and pursue their own singing career. The duo released “BeBe & CeCe Winans”, “Different Lifestyles”, “Relationships”, “Heaven”, and “First Christmas” all of which helped increase his net worth. They then split up to pursue solo careers in 1995, only later recording the 2009 album “Still” which had the song “Close To You” that won a 2010 Dove Award.

BeBe’s solo career started long before he split with his sister. This was when he won his first Grammy in 1989, thanks to the track “Abundant Life” which was part of his brother Ronald’s Family & Friends Choir. In 1997 he signed with Atlantic Records, and released a self-titled solo album which contained the hit “I Wanna Be the Only One”. Three years later, he released “Love & Freedom” under Motown Records. The album featured several artists, and two years later he followed it up with the live album “Live & Up Close”; these consistent releases helped the continuing increase of BeBe’s net worth.

In 2003, Winans decided to create his own record label called The Movement Group, partnered with Still Waters. He released his first album under the new label called “My Christmas Prayer” which first appeared as an exclusive sale from Starbucks. Concurrently he also had a small role in the film “The Manchurian Candidate” which starred Denzel Washington.

In 2005, BeBe released his third album entitled “Dream”, featuring the song “I Have A Dream” which featured samples of Martin Luther King’s iconic speech. During the 2008 Alma Awards, he performed a duet with Eden Espinosa and then worked on his reunion album with CeCe Winans.

He also hosts his own radio program entitled “The Bebe Winans Radio Show”, and starred on Broadway in the production of “The Color Purple”. He was also a judge in the competition called “Sunday Best”, and one of his latest works is the memoir “The Whitney I Knew”, about his close friend Whitney Houston.

For his personal life, it is known that BeBe was married to Debra (1987-2003). He has had several legal issues throughout his career; one case was against his former business manager Eric Peterson whom he sued for breach of managerial contract. In 2009, he was arrested on charges of domestic assault, though they were later dismissed.
