David “Pop” Winans, patriarch of The Winans family gospel group that earned six Grammy awards, has died, a spokesman for a Nashville hospice said on Thursday. Winans, 74, died of a heart attack on Wednesday with his wife, Delores, at his side, a spokesman said. He had suffered a heart attack and stroke last year. In 1999, Winans was nominated for a Grammy for his solo CD “Uncensored.” He and his wife Delores, known as Mom Winans, were nominated for their CD “Mom & Pop Winans” in 1989. She was at his bedside when he died, the statement said.
He was the father of BeBe and CeCe Winans, known for their hits “Addictive Love” and “I’ll Take You There.” Four other children — Michael, Marvin, Carvin and Ronald — performed as The Winans, recording such songs as “Ain’t No Need to Worry” featuring Anita Baker.
