Grammy award-winning gospel artist Cece Winans has released a new gospel version of the song, “Beautifully Broken,” written by Jenny Slate Lee and pop artist Plumb. The moving song serves as title track for the upcoming feature film of the same name, Beautifully Broken, in theaters August 24th. There are three unique versions of the song with Dove award-winning pop singer Plumb, and Grammy award-winning country artist, John Berry, recording their own renditions to spread the uplifting track’s message across genres.
“I know a lot of broken people will be healed through this song and that inspires me,” says Cece Winans. “Once I heard it I felt it had a powerful message so I was honored to record it."
The song, released through Pure Springs Gospel/D3 Music Group, was produced by Winans’ son Alvin Love III and Grammy Award-winning producer Warryn Campbell, and co-produced by Rodney Jones Jr., and Clyde Duffie. The touching lyrics of “Beautifully Broken,” combined with the emotional delivery by CeCe Winans, creates a powerful experience that reflects the impactful nature of the film.
