Legendary gospel singer Vickie Winans has added another element to her already busy singing career! “The Comedianna” (her trademarked definition of a hilarious story-telling Queen), is hitting the road to promote 2 newly recorded Comedy DVDs, entitled, “Hilarious And Unplugged” Volumes 1 and 2. The stand-up comedy projects will be available in stores, on her website and at every stop along the projected 40-city tour that will take the charismatic singer into churches, theaters, and other venues. The tour kicks off on Easter Sunday, April 8, 2012 at the 10,000-seater, House of Hope/Salem Baptist Church Worship Center, in Chicago where Rev. James Meeks is the Pastor, and continues throughout the summer.
Both DVDs were recorded on December 7, 2011 to multiple standing-room-only audiences at Detroit’s Upper Room Complex. During nearly four hours of stage time, Winans told one sidesplitting story after another, from her life’s experiences to growing up with 11 siblings. She had everybody from dignified Bishops to the city’s fire marshal doubled over with laughter. During the evening, Winans performed a live version of her smash hits, “Shake Yourself Loose” and “How I Got Over” with her nephew, Tim Bowman Jr., and she also shot a live music video of her son Mario Winans’ “Overcomer” remix. These songs are included on the DVDs that are rated “E” for Everybody.
