Gospel mainstays the Winans, one of the many groups spawned from the Winans family of inspirational performers, will be anthologized April 16 with Rhino's "The Very Best of the Winans." The single-disc retrospective features tracks from seven albums recorded by the brotherly quartet, from 1981's "Introducing the Winans" (Light) to 1993's Grammy-winning "All Out" (Qwest).

The Winans -- Detroit brothers Marvin, Carvin, Michael, and Ronald -- have won five Grammy awards over their 21-year-career, and form the cornerstone of a multi-faceted gospel music family along with their parents, Mom & Pop Winans, and younger brother and sister tandem BeBe and CeCe.

"The Very Best of the Winans" features greatest hits and highlights from the vocal group's career, including the title tracks from the 1985 Light album "Long Time Comin'" and 1984's "Tomorrow." The group's many collaborations are represented by "Ain't No Need To Worry" with Anita Baker -- a No. 18 hit on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart in 1987 -- "Everyday The Same" featuring Stevie Wonder, "When You Cry" with Kenny G, and 1993's "Payday," featuring R. Kelly.

As previously reported, the extended Winans family will come together beginning April 17 for a 38-city tour featuring the Winans, Mom & Pop Winans, BeBe & CeCe, Daniel Winans, Angie and Debbie Winans, and others.
