Detroit's gospel family the Winans will stage a 40-city tour this summer -- reportedly the first time the household will perform together in a decade -- dubbed Together We Stand: The Winans Family Tour. Young tykes the Winans Phase 2 will share the stage with such relatives as the brother/sister duo of BeBe and CeCe, and the appropriately titled quartet of brothers the Winans. The jaunt kicks off April 17 in Charleston, S.C., and concludes the tour in the Winans' hometown on an unspecified date in August.

Also confirmed for the tour is the traditional gospel of Mom & Pop Winans, and the adult contemporary stylings of Daniel Winans. Car manufacturer Chrysler will sponsor, and plans to display the Winans' family vehicles from throughout the years. Details on how the revue will be staged, which relatives will be collaborating, and what venues the tour will hit have yet to be announced.

BeBe and CeCe own the distinction of having the family's lone No. 1 album; their 1991 Capitol set "Different Lifestyles" reached the pinnacle of Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Albums tally. Older brothers the Winans peaked at No. 12 on that chart with "Return" on Qwest in 1990. More recently, Winans Phase 2, a sort of boy-band amalgam of Winans grandchildren and nephews, reached No. 93 with its "We Got Next" (Sony) in 1999. BeBe's "Live and Up Close" (Motown) is currently at No. 83 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
