Starring as Cora Simmons, the loving and churchgoing “but woe to those who cross me” daughter of beloved Deacon Leroy Brown on the hit TBS comedy Tyler Perry’s Meet The Browns, TAMELA MANN makes millions laugh every week while she enjoys a unique personal double blessing. Continuing the role she originated in Perry’s 2004 play and 2008 film of the same name, the sassy, high spirited multi-talented singer and actress plays a woman that, like her, is absolutely in love with Jesus—and is able to work on set every day with David Mann, her husband of 24 years who plays Leroy. Looking back on Tamela’s extraordinary career, which began in the early 90’s when she and David joined future gospel superstar Kirk Franklin & The Family, her success is truly part of The Master Plan, the name of her highly anticipated new gospel album. Ingeniously funny and extraordinarily talented are understatements when it comes to the multifaceted actor and singer, David Mann. A native of the "bible belt" state of Texas, David masterfully showcases his God given talents in today's most dynamic and distinguished genres. Like most young African-Americans, David was appropriately raised in church by his respectable and upright parents and grandparents. It was under their governing that little David learned-physically the meaning of "spare not the rod" when it came to misbehaving in God's house and grandmother Charlie Mae's house. As David grew weary from his grandma Charlie Mae's excruciating pinches and his mother's "Boy, you betta sit down somewhere look," (and we all know that look), he sought out an unassuming auxiliary at church. After observing his grandfather "Duke," a Pentecostal preacher who could sing you out of your seat, and listening to his mother serenade the congregation, David decided to join the youth choir.
