Description of First Love by Daniel Winans
“I deemed it necessary to celebrate those relationships I have been blessed to have.”, says Daniel Winans, expressing the heart and spirit behind his first major release since 1997: First Love (VSR, EMI CMG Distribution). First Love is truly a celebration of life, friendship and family, but also a call to be mindful of He who first loved us. A member of the legendary, multiple Grammy winning Winans family (and a Grammy winner himself), Daniel brings soulful and heartfelt expression to every song on First Love.
Some outstanding moments on the album are: “Be With You”, a joyful and honest statement about longing to be with the Lord. “Forgive Me”, a deep heart-cry, showing what it takes to be a real man of God: asking for forgiveness and laying down your life for your bride. On the title track “First Love”, Daniel shares the lead with his son, Jeremy in a rousing up tempo fusion of R&B and Hip-Hop, that challenges the body of Christ to lean on our first and greatest love: our Lord! “So, to my darling wife for life, my sons, my daughter, my siblings, cousins, the VSR family and every friend, thank you much! Yet, more importantly it is due time that we all get back to our first love, our relationship with Christ, Jesus! First Love is dedicated to the legacy of Pop and Mom Winans.”
