CeCe Winans part of Come Together concert lineup

CeCe Winans

Pastor Rhys Stenner and New Hope Baptist Church in Fayetteville Georgia are very excited to present their 2nd annual Come Together Benefit Concert for Wellspring Living. Last year’s sold out concert was a huge success and a great worship experience.

Wellspring Living has restorative programs for girls who had been devastated by trauma and forced prostitution designed to make a tangible difference in the lives of the hopeless and broken. Wellspring Living has seen God’s power change the lives of women who were thrown away by the world into new creations full of wholeness, beauty and devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ.

The 2011 Come Together Benefit Concert will feature a stellar list of renowned awarding winning gospel artists and the New Hope Baptist Church Choir & Orchestra.

All proceeds from ticket sales go to Wellspring Living.

The concert will feature CeCe Winans, Babbie Mason, Martha Munizzi, Martha Matthews, Marvin Sapp and The New Hope Baptist Church Choir and Orchestra.

Winans has had multiple GRAMMY, Stellar, and Dove awards and several gold and platinum albums plus those she nabbed with brother BeBe as part of the hit-making duo BeBe & CeCe Winans.

She has been on the cover of high-profile publications such as Essence, Jet, CCM, and Today’s Christian Woman, among countless others, and has been on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Oprah, Live with Regis & Kathie Lee, and even more.

“Singing for God and his people, It’s more home for me,” she says. “I’m most comfortable because I don’t even have to think hard. It’s something I love and I’ve been doing it for a long time. It comes from the heart. It touches the heart. I get lost in His will. I guess I have more fun shouting from the mountaintop.”

When all is said and done, CeCe’s heart lies someplace else. Thy Kingdom Come, her eighth solo album, is a reflection of where her heart resides: in the very inner court of the heavenly realms, where Christ Himself is enthroned.

Mason is a singer, songwriter, television talk-show host, and college professor. Babbie has had chart-topping singles such as ‘All Rise’, ‘Each One, Reach One’, ‘A World of Difference’, ‘With All My Heart’, and ‘Hallowed Be Thy Name’. Numerous Dove and Stellar Award nominations. 2 Dove Awards for Musical of the Year, ‘Make Us One’ and Gospel Recorded Song of the Year, ‘Stop By The Church’.

Babbie has performed for U.S. presidents, Carter, Bush, & Ford, sung in Billy Graham crusades, and appeared with Bill and Gloria Gaither and their ‘Homecoming Friends’. She has been part of the popular Women of Faith tour and hosts a television talk show, Babbie’s House, which is broadcast on WATC in Atlanta as well as nationally and throughout Europe and Africa.

Babbie adds yet another title to her list of talents with her second book, Faithful. She touches the deep places of the soul with heartwarming stories and real-life experiences to challenge you to rely on the truths of God’s word in spite of how you may feel.

Worship Leader Martha Munizzi’s breakthrough came in 2003, with the release of “The Best Is Yet to Come”. Recorded live at Pastor Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church catapulted Munizzi to the top rungs of the contemporary gospel world, yielding such hits as “Mighty God,” “Glorious,” and “God Is Here.” The project peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums in 2004, and stayed on the charts for more than a year. “The Best Is Yet to Come” earned Munizzi the Best New Artist trophy at the 2005 Stellar Awards—the first time a non-African American singer snagged the honor.

Among other accomplishments over the years, Munizzi has scored multiple GRAMMY, Dove, Stellar, and Soul Train Award nominations, as well as several radio hits and appearances on BET, TBN, Daystar, and the Sisters in the Spirit Tour.

Currently, Martha Munizzi has had a long list of ministry opportunities with Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, Benny Hinn, CeCe Winans, and many others. Of her heart’s passion for global worship expressions, Munizzi says, “My deepest desire is to transcend cultural, generational, and denominational boundaries, and to bring all people together through worship.”

Matthews has eight recordings to his credit and two video presentations. Marvin Matthews is the music industry’s best-kept secret. Marvin has worked with a host of popular artists including Debbie Boone, Andrae Crouch, Bob Hope, Mark Lowry, Little Richard, Karen Wheaton, Deniece Williams, and CeCe Winans.

Matthews has been featured on most major Christian networks, including The Word Network, TBN and CBN. God vigorously uses Marvin’s musical talent, but much more, he uses his heart;a heart that He has developed in this contemporary gospel artist over the years. Truly, the only thing greater than Marvin’s voice is his love for Jesus, his family and the body of Christ to which he ministers.

He is committed to inciting love in the Body of Christ. He sings because he’s happy. He sings because he’s free to be all God has called him to be.
Sapp is not a singer that happens to preach but a Preacher called by God who is gifted to sing. Singing since age four he has shared the stage with many gospel notables and his gift is celebrated across musical genres. While he has enjoyed a decorated music ministry receiving Stellar Awards, Gospel Music Excellence Award as well as Grammy, Soul Train Music and Dove Award Nominations.

Sapp is recognized for his professional and philanthropic efforts. He has received his hometown of Grand Rapids Michigan’s highest African American honor, a Giants Award , as well as the Frederick Douglas award from the National Association of Negro and Professional Women’s Club.

Sapp is the Founder and Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Full Life Center Church, one of the fastest growing churches in Western Michigan. When he is not spreading the word of God each year at 200 or more preaching and speaking engagements, Pastor Marvin Sapp ministers at his home church in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His ultimate goal: to encourage Believers to elevate their level of worship and praise.

This benefit concert promises to be another incredible worship experience. Don’t miss your opportunity for a wonderful night of worship and praise!

General admission tickets are still only $15 to see all of these famous gospel artists with all proceeds helping benefit this incredible worthy cause!
