Its been a humbling experience to reflect on our journey and realize that the love and support that we've experienced over the years is still with us to this day. We can't wait for everyone to hear this album."

Premiering 11 new BeBe & CeCe classics, Still also includes the heart wrenching second single "Grace," "Things" (featuring brother Marvin Winans), "Let It Be" (featuring Mary Mary) and "I Found Love" (Cindy's Song) which is destined to be the wedding song of the year.
