Vickie Winans Suing Atlanta Gospel Fest Promoter, Seeking at Least $75,000 in Damages


According to reports, Grammy-nominated gospel singer Vickie Winans is suing a Sandy Springs company, claiming the promoter refused to pay her for appearing recently at what she thought would be a benefit concert for underprivileged people in Cobb County.

Winans, a member of a prominent family of gospel singers, also claims Atlanta Gospel Fest Inc. defamed her as a “no-show” for the concert and demanded that she leave stage when she finally appeared at Cobb Galleria Center on Aug. 2 to perform, according to the suit filed a week ago in Fulton County Superior Court.

Winans is seeking at least $75,000 in damages and other costs.

The Stellar Award singer, who normally receives $15,000 to $20,000 for festivals, said she and Atlanta Gospel Fest signed an agreement in March for her to perform at the Cobb Galleria event earlier this month. The agreement called for a $7,500 performance fee, a first-class round-trip ticket and hotel accommodations, according to the suit.
