Something Big Contest Winner: True Holy Chruch: City of Refuge

On Saturday May 19th, we came down to visit the congregation of True Holy Church: City of Refuge in Brooklyn New York. True Holy Church submitted a heart warming video for our Something Big Contests awhile back  and with fan votes and determination, won the entire contest and received a private concert and breakfast provided by Pillsbury’s delicious Egg Scrambles and Grands! Biscuits.

 

True Holy Church’s community service initiative captured the essence of the contest. The 100 member church has been serving their community through their Kitchen Pantry and Clothing Bank since 1988. The church’s members volunteer every Saturday morning preparing and giving out bags containing food for those in need and simultaneously run a clothing drive where the community can obtain as many articles of clothing as they need without limitations. The Kitchen Pantry project donates an average of 275 bags to the community a week and reported 10,000 bags given to the community, roughly equaling 33, 000 recipients in 2010.

Photos from the event coming soon!

Thanks again to everyone at True Holy Church for doing Something Big!

Erica Welcomed Zaya Monique to the World Yesterday!

 AMDIST THE MY BLOCK/COLUMBIA RECORDING DUO’S WHIRLWIND SCHEDULE, DOUBLE GRAMMY NOMINATIONS, AN NAACP IMAGE AWARD NOMINATION AND A NEW REALITY SERIES ON WE tv, THE COUPLE PAUSES TO GIVE THANKS FOR THE NEWEST ADDITION TO THEIR FAMILY

Erica Campbell, half of the multi-Grammy Award-winning sister duo, Mary Mary, has given birth to her new daughter. Campbell and husband, producer/songwriter Warryn Campbell welcomed their third child, Zaya Monique Campbell, on Tuesday, January 24th, 2012. Both mother and daughter are resting comfortably.

 The glowing mom was elated upon the arrival of her new baby girl. In a statement Erica said that she and her husband were “feeling so thankful and so blessed to have our sweet Zaya finally make her grand entrance into the world! God is awesome, our family couldn’t be more happy than we are today!” Zaya Monique was born at a healthy 6lbs, 12 oz.

 The singer will take a few weeks to spend with her newborn before gearing up to promote Mary Mary’s new self titled WE tv reality series. The highly anticipated series premiers on Thursday, March 29th at 10pm ET/PT, then continues each week at 9pm ET/PT with ten, hour-long episodes.

 Erica Campbell worked throughout the bulk of her pregnancy with sister and duo mate, Tina Campbell, performing on nationally televised award shows such as BET’s Black Girls Rock and Centric’s Soul Train Music Awards along with performances at Macy’s Great Tree Lighting in Atlanta and Chicago’s Magnificent Mile of Lights Festival. Mary Mary also made appearances on television shows such as The Wendy Williams Show, and Good Morning America, where Campbell officially announced her pregnancy.

 Proving her work ethic and dedication to the group, Campbell was ready to kick off the “Have a Mary Mary Christmas Tour” in December 2011, but at 7 months pregnant, was ordered by her doctor to slow down her pace to ensure a healthy pregnancy. The tour as a result was cancelled. Still Campbell found ways to work safely in her hometown of Los Angeles by filming the duo’s television series “Mary Mary”.

With all the accolades that Mary Mary’s current album Something Big has received including a BET Award, Soul Train Award, Two Stellar Awards, Double Grammy Nominations, and an NAACP Image Nomination, truly the greatest delight of the season has come from the arrival of little Zaya Monique.
