Grammy Award nominated smooth jazz gospel artist/pianist Angie Winans will reveal her private grieving process after the death of her beloved brother Ronald Winans in a moving new book entitled “A Love that Heals: Letting God’s Love Give You Hope in Times of Grief” (Howard Books/Simon & Schuster).
The book helps readers connect with Angie’s personal journey through grief, while helping them deal with their own loss.
“I was not an author and never thought I would be,” Angie Winans confesses of her decision to write a book. “I received therapy in writing about what I was feeling when Ronald died. I was so hurt that I needed answers from God as to why Ronald had to leave us. Then, when I received the answers and the comfort of God, I wanted to share it with others so that they wouldn’t hurt like that.”
Love is a simple but powerful word, and in “A Love that Heals,” Angie Winans outlines common principles that will help any grieving heart understand that the love of God provides true resolution. The same love that causes so much pain in loss is also the same love that can heal, so long as readers let it.
Angie Winans uncovers the many facets of love, including celebration, hope, and healing power. Even for readers who feel like their heart will never beat again, Angie’s message provides comfort and a pulse.
Winans wants readers to come way with this truth: “Love is stronger than death. We no longer have to fear what is inevitable. God has a perfect plan and even in death, there is a certain beauty. It’s a transformation like the scripture that says to die is to gain. I want the believers who read the book to look at this process as gaining a blessing and to know that death will never separate them from the love they have for someone.”
One of the leading session vocalists in the 1990s, Winans has also arranged backing vocals for artists such as Destiny Child’s Michelle Williams and Gospel powerhouse Donnie McClurkin. As Angie and Debbie (with her sister), Winans released two best-selling CDs. The first featured their R&B smash “Light of Love” and the second shot to #3 on Billboard’s sales chart.
In 2001, she showed her gifts as a pianist and smooth jazz artist on her solo CD debut “Melodies of My Heart,” which was nominated for a Grammy award. She has since collaborated with Bishop T.D. Jakes and written R&B siren Brandy’s hit “A Love Shared.”
Angie Winans is married to Grammy-winning producer, Cedric Caldwell. They live in Brentwood, TN with their three children.
