(Los Angeles, CA - June 2005) --- The multi-award
winning musical dynasty, The Winans Family said good
bye to Ronald Winans, the second eldest of the ten
siblings, on the morning of June 17th Winans endured a
massive heart-attack in 1997, but because of much
prayer he experienced a miraculous recovery after the
doctors had given him up for dead. In recent weeks,
Ronald was admitted to the hospital for observation
after the doctors realized he was retaining an
abnormal amount of fluid in his body. On Thursday the
doctors announced that they didn't feel Winans would
make it through the night and he peacefully succumbed
due to heart complications early this morning. The
entire family gathered together at Harper Hospital in
Detroit, Michigan to be with Ronald until his final
moments. "The family wishes to thank everyone who
joined us in prayer and will continue to extend their
unwavering support during our time of loss", states
the seventh son, BeBe Winans.
Winans who was to turn 49 years old on the 30th of
June was part of the quartet, The Winans. The four
brothers Marvin, Carvin, Michael & Ronald were
discovered by contemporary gospel pioneer,
singer/songwriter/ producer, Andrae Crouch.. They
released their first album in 1981 titled, Introducing
The Winans. It was with this release that the world
would become familiar with the name, Winans, which is
now synonymous with gospel. In January 2005 Winans
released his final CD, Ron Winans Family & Friends V:
A Celebration which was recorded live at Greater Grace
in Detroit.
Brother and sister dynamic duo, Bebe & CeCe Winans
made a huge impact in the music world. Their
innovative, contemporary sound propelled gospel music
to new heights. Their mega- hit, "Addictive Love"
rested in the #1 spot on the Billboard R& B Charts for
several weeks. As a whole the family has made an
incredible mark in the music industry racking up a
myriad of awards and accolades. Often referred to as
the first family of gospel, their achievements include
31 Grammy Awards, over 20 Stellar and Dove Awards and
6 NAACP Image Awards. Ronald will be missed but not
forgotten and his contribution to the gospel music
world and the church will live on forever.
Arrangements are incomplete at this time.
