Born For This: A New Musical
A story of family, love and forgiveness.
Created by six-time GRAMMY® Award-winning icon BeBe Winans and director Charles Randolph-Wright (Motown the Musical), Born For This: A New Musical celebrates the incredible true story of BeBe Winans – a young man who follows his heart and finds his destiny.
Detroit teenagers BeBe and Cece Winans experience the ultimate in culture shock when they leave the comfort and safety of their already-famous family to join Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker’s Praise The Lord Network in Pineville, North Carolina. The televangelist couple becomes an unlikely surrogate family as the siblings rapidly rise to television stardom. Eventually crossing over to mainstream fame, BeBe must learn to reconcile the temptations of stardom and fortune with the things he ultimately values more.
Born For This brings the legendary artist’s story to life with acclaimed new music and lyrics by BeBe Winans that will have audiences on their feet. A wildly funny yet deeply emotional journey toward self-discovery, Born For This is the family-friendly and universal story for anyone who has ever yearned for something – for anyone who is looking to find their purpose in life.
“I haven’t heard singing this divinely inspired since Cynthia Erivo, Danielle Brooks and Jennifer Hudson tore it up in the Tony-winning revival of The Color Purple.”
