Did you know Tamela Mann got her big break singing for Kirk Franklin? Before the movies and before her solo albums, she was a part of Kirk Franklin’s group, The Family, and sang on five of his albums.

Tamela, who’s actually really big on family, has been able to juggle her acting/singing career with her family very close. Before she was married to him, David Mann also sang on Kirk Franklin’s choir, they both went on to star in Tyler Perry plays, movies and TV shows, and she also had a reality TV show on TV One with her entire family. It was the plays that accelerated her singing career though. Shortly after Perry’s productions began to settle, Tamela released her first solo album, Gotta Keep Movin’, under she and her husband’s own record label, Tillymann Music Group.

The rest was history! See five of her top songs below and vote for your favorite!
