COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – February 15, 2021 – On February 21, Compassion International’s Compassion LIVE will host 12-time Grammy award winner CeCe Winans and fans to celebrate a season of gratitude as she brings music, joy, encouragement, and special guests Tauren Wells, Carrie Underwood, and Marvin Winans to the computer screen.

“I am so excited about partnering with Compassion for An Evening of Thanksgiving,” says Winans. “There is so much going on in the world, and I believe we could all use a night to forget about the chaos and focus on God and his faithfulness.”
