Gospel singer Bebe Winans revealed in an interview on SiriusXM’s The Joe Madison Show, that in addition to him, his mother and brother were affected by the Coronavirus.

He began by admitting that like most people even though we were warned about the virus, he didn’t think he would catch it so he decided to travel.  

“Sometimes, for some reason, we as a people when we look in and we look at television and various things that’s going on around us, we somehow say, that can’t happen to me for some reason,” he explained. “I don’t know why, but sometimes we believe that, and even myself being cautious, when the outbreak started, I did just a little travel.”


He says he was on the east coast but he needed to go back home Detroit for his friend’s funeral.

“I was actually in New York and I was like, well, I’m going to Detroit because I had a friend pass and we were having a funeral and just that little travel, I caught it,” 

Although he didn’t experience any symptoms before flying, after Winans returned home is when he started experiencing symptoms.

“I just started coughing out of nowhere, and then the fatigue came on, and the chills and my appetite went away.”

Winans experienced symptoms but called his doctor instead of going to the hospital.

Winans’s brother was admitted to the hospital after suffering a “seizure and pneumonia set in,” and his mother was affected by the virus for about four to five days. 

Winans says the lessons he learned is that God can heal but we also  need to use or common sense 

“I’m just concrete in the subject matter that God is greater than everything. Yet, and still, it’s so important for us to use common sense.”
