Let Them Fall in Love (2017)

Updated: Nov 21, 2023


Let Them Fall in Love is the ninth studio album by Christian gospel singer CeCe Winans, released on February 3, 2017 by PureSpring Gospel with a new marketing and distribution agreement with Thirty Tigers. The album is produced by CeCe's son Alvin Love III and musician Tommy Sims.


It is CeCe's first album of new material in nearly a decade since 2008's Thy Kingdom Come, and the first time Let Them Fall in Love is released independently. The album's sound is a throwback of sorts paying tribute to 1960s and 1970s R&B soul. The album was preceded by the singles "Never Have to be Alone" and "Hey Devil!" featuring the American gospel vocal group The Clark Sisters. Both singles were released in the fall of 2016. CeCe covers the 1973 Kris Kristofferson country gospel classic "Why Me" (#1 Billboard Hot Country Singles, #16 Billboard Hot 100, #28 Billboard AC). Hezekiah Walker and The Love Fellowship Choir are the featured vocalists on the track "Dancing in the Spirit."


Let Them Fall in Love topped the Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart. The album also placed in the Independent Albums chart debuting and peaking at number 6 and at number 103 on the Top 200 Albums chart. In the fall of 2017, CeCe won two Dove Awards for Gospel Artist of the Year and Contemporary Gospel/Urban Album of the Year at the 48th GMA Dove Awards and in 2018 has won two Grammy Awards for Best Gospel Album and Best Gospel Performance/Song for the single "Never Have to be Alone" at the 53rd Grammy Awards.
