Deborah Joy Winans Parents

Deborah Joy Winans is the talented actress who plays Charity Greenleaf-Satterlee.  She graduated from Wayne State University and has been pursuing her acting career ever since.  On the show, she plays the daughter of Bishop James (Keith David) Greenleaf.  Charity and her husband, Kevin (Tye White) are expecting a baby but he’s attracted to men!

Greenleaf is not the only project that the Detroit-native has been featured in lately.  Atlanta Magazine explains that the actress and her brother, Juan, played their aunt and uncle, CeCe and BeBe in “Born For This” at the Alliance Theatre earlier this year.  While we’re sure CeCe and BeBe are proud of their niece and nephew, no one’s prouder than their parents, Carvin and Cherie.
