Vickie Winans may well command the most fervent fan base of the gifted Winans family. With her boisterous performance style of shouting "hallelujah," growling out low notes, and careening into upper-register nasal-toned squeals in a sultry soprano--as big and tumultuous as a raging river--Vickie and the white-hot Straight Gate Mass Choir bring the audience to their feet on Live in Detroit. Exemplary of her rousing approach is her Pentecostal-flavored preaching in the introduction to the uptempo "Long As I Got King Jesus (Don't Need No One Else)": "I want you to know so long as I got King Jesus, I don't need nobody else. Do you hear me when I say it? ...I feel like havin' a little church this evenin.'" While Vickie's star has shone brightly since her 1985 debut, here the exuberant essence of her ministry is felt most strongly. --Paige La Grone
