Gospel Singer CeCe Winans Responds Graciously After Recording Academy Mistakes Her For Shirley Caesar


Shirley Caesar and CeCe Winans, both award-winning gospel singers with distinctly anointed voices and beautiful smiles, have fallen victim to a huge Grammy Awards flub.

During the pre-edited Lifetime Achievement Awards segment, which aired during the live televised event, Winans was mistaken for Caesar in the video montage—a huge blunder the “Alabaster Box” singer is taking in stride.

“You can’t mistake Shirley Caesar's beauty or voice!” tweeted Winans, 52, paying homage to the legendary Caesar, 78, who received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys this year.

Unfortunately, her shining moment was overshadowed by the poorly edited visual tribute, which, also spelled the honoree’s  last name wrong—mistakenly typing out Caeser instead of Caesar.


Many Internet users and fans of gospel music blasted the Recording Academy for both errors.

But the always classy and sweet 10-time Grammy-winning Winans, whose latest album Let Them Fall In Love just debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart, is spreading positivity by taking this opportunity to pour love on Caesar.

“Thank you for a lifetime of blessings! I adore you,” she wrote, acknowledging the 11-time Grammy winner whose career spans decades.

Caesar’s hit "Hold My Mule," featuring Albertina Walker and Milton Brunson, which was first released in 1988, got new life in 2016 when a remix of it sparked the viral #UNameIt Challenge.

It soared to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart and was streamedmillions of times according to Nielsen music.

Despite the uproar and backlash over the mix-up, Caesar still received her special award, about which Winans said, “Congrats on the well-deserved Grammy!”
