Los Angeles, CA - April 8, 2009: After initially suffering a heart attack and stroke in October 2008, David Winans, Sr. the patriarch of the musical dynasty, The Winans Family, passed away quietly @ 4 p.m. CST on Wednesday, April 8, 2009 in Nashville, TN at the Alive Hospice with wife, Delores Winans at his bedside. The Winans Family wish to thank everyone for their prayers and continued support, but would appreciate privacy at this time. Memorial and homegoing services are being planned for Tuesday, April 14 and Wednesday, April 15 at Perfecting Church in Detroit, MI where Winans’ son, Marvin L. Winans, is the Sr. Pastor.

Marvin Winans takes center stage as he preps for his first solo debut, Alone But Not Alone. The multi-award winning tenor and his siblings Ronald, Carvin & Michael made up the quartet, The Winans. Their distinctive, contemporary sound was way ahead of its time and rocked many boats in the church world, but was well received by mainstream radio.
