    David "Pop" Winans Sr., the Grammy-nominated father of one of gospel's most well-known families, died in a Nashville hospice on Wednesday. Winans was admitted in January after continuing complications from a heart attack and stroke he'd suffered last October. He was 76.

    Winans was nominated for a Grammy twice: first for Mom & Pop Winans, a 1989 collaboration with his wife Delores, and then for his solo CD Uncensored in 1999. Winans' children were also very successful in the gospel realm. While BeBe & CeCe Winans scored hits with the singles "Addictive Love" and "I'll Take You There," The Winans (featuring his other children, Michael, Marvin, Carvin and Ronald) were known for such songs as the Anita Baker-backed "Ain't No Need to Worry."

    All and all, the David and Delores Winans had 10 children. Their son Ronald died in 2005. Memorial services for "Pop" are planned for next Tuesday and Wednesday at Detroit's Perfecting Church. Marvin Winans serves as the senior pastor there.
