According to the Jasmine Brand, Gabrielle Union, who is married to retired basketball player Dwyane Wade, once advised Christian couple Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors & his wife Ayesha to break up and have sex with other people! Gabrielle revealed she gave this explosive and frankly bad advice during the funny Instagram conversation she and Dwyane recently had with the Currys, who have been married since they were in their early 20s.
But Gabrielle also complimented the Currys on their faith. See the statement below:
“Literally, there are very few people I have met who have been consistent. I mean, sh*t, I’ve known you guys for well over a decade. And there’s a lot of people who talk about faith, and there’s a lot of people who talk about moving the culture forward but something isn’t real somewhere, right? When people are like, ‘Are they real?’ And I’m like, ‘Yes. They’re some of the only people I’ve met who have been consistent from the first time I saw them to every time I speak to you guys…me and Ayesha just text each other [with] encouragement randomly. Like, ‘Girl, keep your head up. You got this.’ And…I wish people understood that it is possible to be people of faith…”
Kudos to the Currys for sticking together AND being an example of faith within the basketball community and the world!
Juan Winans is the brother of Deborah Joy Winans, 'Charity' from OWN's 'Greenleaf'
Dare Records celebrates the release of gospel music’s premiere millennial GRAMMY-nominated couple, Juan and Lisa Winans’, official debut single, “It Belongs To Me,” featuring 6X GRAMMY-Award winner Marvin Winans, who is Juan’s uncle. Following the success of their 2018 Holiday EP, A Little Soul for Christmas, “It Belongs To Me” encourages all that the good news and promises of God are for them and will come to pass. It’s a beautifully rendered and timely message as the world faces a global health crisis and rising social and political unrest. “It Belongs To Me” will be available on all major digital retail outlets on Friday, May 8, 2020.
Juan Winans began his career with the Billboard #1 Gospel Album, “Winans Phase 2: We Got Next.” Juan and his sister Deborah Joy Winans (“Greenleaf”) toured in the original musical “Born For This: The BeBe Winans Story,” for which Juan won Best Male Lead at the 2019 NAACP Theater Awards. Lisa Winans (formerly Lisa Kimmey) is best known as one third of the Dove Award winning, Contemporary Christian Music trio, Out of Eden. The group was active from 1994 to 2006, producing seven albums. During Lisa’s tenure with Out of Eden, she appeared on the 90’s sitcom “Moesha,” and hosted original programming for the Gospel Music Channel. In 2006, Out of Eden retired and released a greatest hits compilation. The trio reunited in 2014 for a special Gotee Records compilation album with a cover of House of Heroes’ single “Constant.”
“Our single, (“It Belongs To Me”) is more than a song to us, it’s the way we are aspiring to live. Jesus said that He came to give us abundant life. That’s a big, bold statement and just one of many promises offered to us as children of God. This song is a declaration of our desire and dedication to living in those promises; to possessing every gift and blessing that God makes available to us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. ‘It Belongs To Me’ is our anthem of grace and faith,” says Juan Winans.
Check out the single below!
