Mario Winans

Biography

A member of the pioneering gospel family the Winans, Mario got his start in the industry as a producer, at the young age of 14. After working extensively with his family's group, he branched off into less spiritual work in the mid-1990s, providing tracks for R. Kelly and releasing his own solo debut, Story Of My Heart, in 1997. He continued to produce for a variety of other artists, including Mr. Cheeks, Mary J Blige, and P. Diddy. In early 2004, he teamed up with Diddy for the single "I Don't Wanna Know," which revisits the haunting Enya melody in the Fugees' smash hit "Ready Or Not."
