It seems like only yesterday that Mary Mary burst on the scene with “Shackles,” but that was over a decade ago. Since then, the sisterly duo ascended to the top tier of Gospel music artists thanks to a lot of hard work and sacrifices. It’s hard to be in a duo with your sister, and have a husband and several babies, AND to go out in front of huge crowds and be “on,” singing with all your heart. But Erica and Tina Campbell (aka Mary Mary) managed to have a very, very successful career not only in Gospel music, but in the entertainment industry in general.
Now, though, it’s time for the duo to take a break, and Erica is doing a solo record. Right now, you’ll be hearing her solo radio hit, “A Little More Jesus,” which goes on sale June 25th on iTunes, Amazon and other online retailers. It’s a hand-clapper with a back-in-the-day beat, full of energy and encouraging lyrics.
While her sister Tina takes some time off from the biz, Erica will be hitting the road this summer, including appearances at the legendary Essence Music Festival and New York City’s Central Park! You can visit http://www.myblockrecords.com for details.
Erica’s profile in the media has really gone up since she and her sister showed it all on their self-titled WEtv series, “Mary Mary,” which is now filming its third season. The reality show about the lives of these Gospel superstars show them in good times and bad, allowing the audience to see they’re “real people” who struggle with life issues just like everyone else. -Mark Weber
