Cece Winans and her husband Alvin Love II’s is sharing their love story
Cece Winans and her husband Alvin Love II crossed path when she was only 17-years-old and Alvin was 33. At first, she was not comfortable with the fact that he is abit way older than her. Notwithstanding, they both couldn’t deny the instant chemistry they sparked between them.
Yet at the time, Winans just began to push through with her passion for music together with her nine siblings, and even breaking out as a hit musical act with her brother BeBe. Being in a relationship was the last she needed at the time, meeting Alvin changed everything.
How they met and fell in love?
Cece Winans, a teenager in 1982, moved to North Carolina to minister at the Christian show The PTL Club with BeBe Winans while also attending beauty school.
She met Alvin Love II in a bowling alley in the company of a few friends. Even though they didn’t talk, they were both lovestruck. As Alvin told Today’s Christian Woman, “Ronald, Cece’s second-oldest brother, had befriended me at church… When you meet one of the Winanses, eventually you meet the rest.”
With the connection that existed in the both families and faith, Cece thought Alvin was “cute” but was too occupied with music. Alvin thought the singer was “really pretty” and later travelled to Charlotte to see her sing on PTL.
Meeting again in North Carolina was a whole lot of fun and happy memories; that fueled a new romance between them
In their testimonies, Cece describes “jumping up and down” that week as an expression of Joy, and Alvin feeling “strongly” that he had found his future wife. After regular hanging out and visitation, they took thing serious by getting married just 2 years later.
While Winans pursued her music career, Alvin backed her up every step of the way, leaving his job at Xerox to manage Cece’s career.
Today, they are the proud parents of two adult children, 36-year-old music producer Alvin Love III and 33-year-old Ashley Love, and live in Brentwood, Tennessee happily running their renown church.
