Something's Happening! A Christmas Album (2018)

Updated: Nov 23, 2023

Something's Happening! A Christmas Album is the tenth studio and second Christmas album by Christian gospel singer CeCe Winans, released on October 19, 2018 by PureSpring Gospel and distributed by Thirty Tigers.

The album is a departure from early Christmas albums First Christmas (with CeCe's brother BeBe Winans) (1993) and His Gift (1998), whereas those albums were more urban contemporary and this album is with a full symphony orchestra. It was an album, CeCe said, that she has always wanted to do to capture the Christmas spirit with a full orchestra. CeCe's son Alvin Love III produced and arranged Something's Happening! and has written five original songs including the single and music video "It's Christmas."

Something's Happening! peaked at number 12 on the Top Gospel Albums and number 42 on the Top Holiday Albums charts in Billboard magazine. In 2020, the album was nominated for a Grammy for Best Gospel Album.
