Brother-sister duo BeBe and CeCe Winans became one of the most successful Christian crossover acts of all time, garnering hit after hit with their ultra-smooth brand of contemporary R&B-style gospel. 2009's STILL is a slick, energetic, dancefloor-ready slice of funky positive message music that benefits from both modern and vintage approaches to production. The first single, "Close to You," is a hip-grinding hip-hop slow jam, while "Things" is driven by an old school disco/funk rhythm reminiscent of Cheryl Lynn's "To Be Real." The sweeping, sting-laden "Grace" showcases CeCe's powerful vocals, while "Reason to Dance" channels Michael Jackson's propulsive grooves. Of course, beneath all the fancy sounds and impassioned singing are deep faith and reverence, which makes STILL one of BeBe and CeCe's most satisfying efforts.
Billboard (p.32) - "The pair's smooth yet arresting blend of R&B, pop, soul and jazz carries a contemporary vibe..."
