Fast-forward to September, 2006, and America will again experience the thrill of a very special Donnie McClurkin & CeCe Winans concert tour. Beginning September 7, in Buffalo, New York, “An Evening with Donnie & CeCe” kicks off an ambitious multi-city tour that will capture the celebratory music this dynamic duo has generated for millions of fans.
Sponsored by World Vision, L’Oreal’s Soft Sheen Carson Division, and Feed the Children, An Evening with Donnie & CeCe features music from each artist’s vast catalogue. McClurkin’s current CD, Psalm, Hymns and Spiritual Songs (Zomba/Verity) was recently certified platinum by the RIAA. Winans’ Purified CD (Sony/Pure Springs Gospel/INO) continues to be a favorite and remains on the Billboard Top 20 after 40 weeks on the Gospel charts.
Some of the perks concert attendees can expect is a giant screen that will allow full viewing of the concert, coupled with ample seating at all stops. Also, McClurkin is sponsoring a contest that will allow a lucky fan at each stop in the tour to sing with him on stage. Fans will be directed to his www.donnieradio.com site to submit, in writing , why they should win that spot on stage. “The Donnie McClurkin Show” recently launched in over 30 markets, five of which were top ten markets and is distributed by Superadio. “We’re going to have a night of continual worship, like you’ve never had before”, says McClurkin.
CeCe Winans is in for an intense 4th quarter as she not only preps for the multi-city tour, but also gears up for her 2nd annual Always Sisters Conference on August 4th & 5th at The Curb Event Center on the Belmont University Campus in Nashville, TN.

As for the Donnie & CeCe tour Winans says, “we’re excited about this tour, we want you to bring your family and friends out and enjoy a night with us.”
