Cedric ‘BIG CED’ Thornton (Black Enterprise) – Controversy has surrounded a famed gospel singer due to her participation in an ad campaign commissioned by the Department of Health and Human Services, according to Madame Noire.
CeCe Winans is slated to appear alongside celebrities such as Dennis Quaid, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and Garth Brooks in a Department of Health and Human Services ad campaign to speak about how the Trump administration has handled the coronavirus pandemic.
