SORT BY Relevancy
Conquerors. That’s the best way to describe Mary Mary. The soul-stirring sister duo of Erica and Tina Campbell seemingly overcame it all in the last few years - winning yet another Grammy, inking a deal for season three of a groundbreaking originally scripted series, beating a vocal challenge, healing a marriage misstep, overseeing a change in management, launching a solo career for one sister and grieving the death of a parent. That’s enough to make anyone’s head spin. Yet, the sisters embraced each challenge and proclaim that this year is their best year yet.As Tina staunchly declares in her signature staccato: “Survive it. Persevere. Overcome it.”
Indeed. Mary Mary’s greatest story is that of overcoming. Thirteen years ago, no one could have predicted the far flung reach of the hit “Shackles (Praise You)” that went on to become a signature song and crossover smash. From there, Mary Mary would win four Grammy Awards, 2 NAACP Image Awards, four BET awards, two American Music Awards, one ASCAP award, and multiple Stellar & Dove Awards and release seven albums, the most recent being the multiple award winning compilation “Go Get It” ( 2012 Columbia Records, a Division of Sony Music Entertainment). Now a household name, the ladies are credited with ushering in a new generation of gospel stars solidly entrenched in the larger cultural milieu while also overtaking the pop charts.
I've always admired individuals that could express themselves whether it was through the written word, acting or art. I was never one of those people. Not until I started my podcasts did I understand or feel what that was like. Today's episode is about my thoughts on that. Thanks to @Che_Rollins, @Chabo101, @Fredreker. And welcome @drummerboyx24 to the podcasting family.
