Gospel music superstar sibling acts, Mary Mary, were honored at the Broadcast Music, Inc. ® (BMI®) Trailblazers of Gospel Music Honors at the Rialto Center for the Arts last night in Atlanta, GA. The night was hosted by previous Trailblazer recipient and renowned gospel singer-songwriter, Yolanda Adams, this special night paid tribute to the best in the Gospel music community.
Erica Campbell and Tina Campbell, the history-making, Gospel megastars who, as solo artists, and together, as the multi-Grammy® and multi-award winning superstar sister duo Mary Mary, have launched 2016 with no less thunder than in previous years, as they prepare for a packed January and history-making 2016!
I talked with the ladies before they hit the BMI show and they expressed utter excitement and graciousness.
Listen to what Tina told me:
Erica says, “It is an amazing honor and I’m grateful.”
Mary Mary have conquered the world of television with their own self-titled series on WE tv, and as judges for more than five seasons on BET’s gospel singing competition show, Sunday’s Best.
