Anyone who knows gospel megastar, Vickie Winans, knows that she is a natural comedienne. For years, she’s been booked for as many hilarious mistress of ceremonies gigs as concert dates and now she’s recording her first ever stand up comedy DVD. Back in the 1990s, CGI Records released a CD of Winans’ humorous stories about hair weaves and fad diets, “Share the Laughter.” However, this will be her first comedy DVD and the taping will feature all new material. “No one I know is spared,” Winans jokes. “Friends, family and the crazy hilarious things they do may show up in my shows.”
The DVD taping takes place Wednesday, December 7, 2011 @ 6:30 pm, 8:00 pm and 9:30 pm. Tickets for the tapings are free of charge and available at The Upper Room located at 23821 Grand River (Just one block east of Telegraph), Detroit, MI 48219. Tickets can be picked up everyday (except Sundays) from 4-10 pm at The Upper Room (only 4 tickets per person). Seating is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. Food is available for purchase. Phone: (313) 531-5100 for further information.
Winans burst on the gospel music scene in 1985 with her signature smash “We Shall Behold Him.” She’s remained one of gospel music’s Top 10 artists with appearances on NBC Today and Oprah. She has appeared on the cover of Jet magazine, served as celebrity spokesperson for Daimler-Chrysler and Quaker Oats. Other hits include #1 songs “As Long As I Got King Jesus,” “Shake Yourself Loose” and “The Rainbow.” Visit www.vickiewinans.com for further information on Vickie Winans and her up-coming ventures and activities.
