Singer and songwriter, CeCe Winans, is coming back to music after a ten year hiatus and providing her thoughts on how to “Make America Great Again.” And don’t worry, the 52-year-old’s solution has nothing to do with politics.
The 10 time award winning Grammy winner believes that faith is the ultimate answer to unifying America and dissolving the tensions left over from election 2016, a stressful and dividing life season for most, especially for millennials, a population of young people, that on average felt frustration towards both the Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton at high rates.
But to ease the hearts and minds of Generation Xers, Yers and baby boomers, the mother of two is calling on people to turn to their faith.
Winans told the Huffington Post,”I don’t think the role (of religion) is as big as it should be” now. And “I think if everybody would understand how important the church is to our society, I think we would experience peace a lot sooner.”
“One thing about God’s work is, when you’re dealing with truth and you’re dealing with love. It really can fix every situation, but we all have to be willing to do that.”
“We have to be able to humble ourselves, and prefer others more than ourselves, and when we do that it creates peace, it creates harmony.”

Winans advice should be taken to heart because the last five years she has been immersed in God’s words. Both Winans and her husband Alvine Love II founded and act as senior pastors of Nashville Life Christian Church. .
The award-winning vocalist explained in a recent interview with The Tennessean that the experience of opening a church, “…has required my husband and I to lay down our lives even more for people. I think we’ve tapped into true happiness. It’s a lot of work, but it’s the best way you could ever spend your life.”
Earlier this month, Winans released her first solo album in ten years titled “Let Them Fall in Love.”
