Name: Mario Winans

The son of gospel recording artists Marvin Winans and Vickie Winans; R&B singer, songwriter, and music producer Mario Winans is best known for his production work which has sold over 100 million copies around the world. Mario Winans began learning piano, keyboards, and drums while still in grade school in Detroit, Michigan and learned how to work in a recording studio at an early age. He began producing gospel music professionally after graduating high school. Aside from working on recordings for his family and other gospel artists, including Fred Hammond, The Anointed, and The Clark Sisters, Winans has developed a reputation as a skilled drum programmer, percussionist, and composer. Before the age of 16, Winans received his first music award. In the mid-1990s, while in Atlanta, Georgia, Winans was signed to a production deal with Dallas Austin's Rowdy Records. One of his first major breakthroughs came as a songwriter, musician, and co-producer on R. Kelly's "I Can't Sleep Baby" and "You Remind Me of Something" from the R. Kelly album in 1995. He also worked with Pebbles and 98 Degrees. Winans released his debut album Story of My Heart on Motown in 1997. The song "Don't Know" reached the U.S. R&B top 50. Soon after, Winans teamed up with P. Diddy and his Bad Boy roster, playing drums on "Come with Me" by Diddy and Jimmy Page, based on the classic Led Zeppelin song "Kashmir" from their 1975 album Physical Graffiti. Over the next several years, Winans amassed a sizeable list of production credits for Bad Boy artists including Diddy, The Notorious B.I.G., Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, Loon, Black Rob, and 112. He has also worked with notable artists outside of Bad Boy including Destiny's Child, Mary J. Blige, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube, Tamia, and Brian McKnight. Winans co-wrote the two-part song "I Need a Girl" with P. Diddy and appeared on "I Need a Girl, Pt. 2" with Loon, Ginuwine, and Diddy, which became a hit recording in 2002. He also produced the Bad Boy remix compilation We Invented the Remix in 2002. Winans recorded his second album Hurt No More in 2001, 2002, and 2003, an album based on the stories of love and betrayal. The first single "I Don't Wanna Know," was released in early 2004 and became a worldwide hit, soaring to #1 in Germany and on the rhythmic top 40 chart in the United States; to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, on the U.S. R&B/Hip-Hop singles chart, and on the world internet download charts; and to #3 on a composite world R&B chart (based on the R&B charts in the U.S., UK, Germany, France, and Australia) and on both the Australian and Norwegian singles charts. It also reached the top ten on a composite European singles chart. Hurt No More was released on April 20, 2004 in the U.S. and by early June 2004 had reached #1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, #2 on the Billboard chart, #2 on the Billboard 200, and #3 on the UK's album chart. Winans appeared on Diddy's 2006 album, Press Play, producing, writing, and singing on "Through the Pain (She Told Me)" and the hit single "Last Night" with Keyshia Cole. The winner of two Grammy awards for his work with CeCe Winans, and over 26 BMI awards for his production and songwriting work and over 300 major placements, Winans continues to prove that he is a valuable asset to the music industry.
