Product Description

Amazon.com

In the same year that Amy Grant achieved household-name status with her crossover album Heart in Motion, Bebe and CeCe Winans rocked out in celebration of Jesus' light with the amazing Mavis Staples on the duo's remake of the gospel-soul monster hit "I'll Take You There." Certified platinum, Different Lifestyles generated a chunk of No. 1 hits, placed at the top of both Billboard's gospel and R&B charts, and resulted in a slew of awards from the NAACP and the Dove and Grammy folks. Pal M.C. Hammer raps up something fierce, BeBe wails lead, and backing singers on the powerful booty-shaking "The Blood" include Whitney Houston and the original singing Winans: Marvin, Carvin, Ronald, and Michael. A major milestone in not only the group's career, the high-spirited Different Lifestyles marks a not-so-subtle shift and a generous achievement in the genre. --Paige La Grone

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By John Jones on December 1, 1999
Format: Audio CD
On the CD "Different Lifestyles," the writing, production and vocals of BeBe & CeCe Winans reached a new plateau. Their third collaboration with producer Keith Thomas (of Amy Grant's "Heart in Motion" and "House of Love" fame) was filled to the rim with catchy hooks, spotless arrangements and soaring, soulful vocals. It even worked as a crossover of sorts: singles like "Depend on You" and "Addictive Love," while intended to sing the praises of God, could certainly be played from friend to friend or even lover to lover; with this album BeBe & CeCe gave new meaning to the concept that music should be universal. The title track is an eloquent musing of a humble, flawed human trying to meet God's expectations in a modern world, and a remake of the Staple Singers' hit "I'll Take You There" (featuring a cameo by Mavis Staples) is nothing short of breathtaking. Even when BeBe & CeCe sing about trying times (on "It's Ok" and the stunning "You Know and I Know") the lyrics convey a bright ray of hope amidst drop-dead gorgeous musical arrangements. And for instant sunshine and optimism, look no further than the happy pop shuffle of "Can't Take This Away," a song whose spirit is boosted with a full-bodied testament by the Calvary Choir. Throughout all of its production strengths BeBe & CeCe give some of the most soulful and joyous performances of their careers. This is one of those rare albums that succeeds within its genre and still invites fans from outside of it. Recorded in 1991, the only sign of dating itself is a guest rap by MC Hammer (on the funkfest "The Blood"); otherwise this immaculate and moving album -at once a portrait of a duo at the height of their artistry and a textbook for incomparable pop/soul production- is a timeless classic.

1991's "Different Lifestyles" comes as close as one can get in bridging the gap between secular and religious music. Like the other reviewers has stated, many of the selections here can be interpreted differently by the respective ear and inclination. This makes the album work for every interest.
The hits "Addictive Love" and "It's O.K." were revolutionary upon their original release. Now contemporary artists such as Yolanda Adams and Donnie McClurkin commonly do songs of their types. Such is Bebe and CeCe's legacy.
While together they are magic, it is on two particular "solo" efforts where each gets a chance to show his/her unique interpretive skills. CeCe illuminates "Supposed to Be", a truly uplifting lyric extolling the virtues of giving one's life to the Lord. BeBe's solo offering, "Searching for Love", allows him to pull out all the passion of his vocal instrument in a song about the power of real, uncompromising love. The latter also features background backing and arrangement from a certain Luther Vandross.
And in homage to one of their musical foremothers, BeBe and CeCe are joined by Mavis Staples on a cover of The Staple Family's "I'll Take You There".
"Different Lifestyles" is one of the best from the 90's and deserves greater recognition AND increased sales.

A friend of mine told me to buy the CD. Since I already liked a couple of the tracks heard on the radio, I decided to buy it. Boy, was I surprised. The songs on the album were so great. As it turned out, I ended up listening to it every, single morning so that my day got started on a "positive note". This is an album for anyone who isn't particularly spiritual (if you aren't, then this album will make you think and feel otherwise). The track, "The Blood" featuring MC Hammer and in the background vocals, Whitney Houston, is so awesome, so powerful.

Probably has the most crossover appeal of any of their work. The urban-soul flavored "Addictive Love" and the tender "It's Ok" are both indicative of how mainstream this team really could have been. "I'll Take You There" had also been covered around the same time by Starleana (formerly of Aurra and Deja), so Bebe and Cece's version may have charted even higher had that not been the case. This is honestly an album more for fans of the soul of the early 90s than for gospel fans. It's too bad that so many of the religious snobs of the day couldn't embrace this duo and album the way they should have. In the midst of their great talent and sound, this team was too snubbed for being religious while at the same time too snubbed by the overly religious. Bebe and Cece were pivotal to me during my conversion and their music really helped me through, even though nasty religious sects were too worried about the "beat". If some of these groups which still exist today weren't so obsessed with whether or not women can wear pants and make-up, they'd wake up and realize there was no such thing as mass choirs in Christ's day. And upon waking they just may find themselves tapping their feet (Heaven forbid!!!!) to the great music of Bebe and Cece Winans.

I purchased the cassette when this first came out back in 1993 and loved it so much. I listened to it constantly. The cassette was lost, so i repurchased the cd through amazon and still enjoy it to this day. The songs, different lifestyles, addictive love, The staples i'll take you there, its ok, searching for love, and you know and i know really touches me and stirs my spirit everytime i hear them. Overall, the whole cd is great. If you're looking for a cd to put a smile on your face, a lift in your spirit, love and joy in your heart, compassion and happy tears in your eyes, this cd will do all that and more for you. Get it, you wont be dissappointed and you will truely see that Bebe and Cece are singing from their heart and they were put on this earth to sing Gods praise to help themselves as well as all of us in whatever we're going thru in life. 5 stars all the way!!
