Mary Mary Celebrates in Dallas as Part of a Surprise Gala Hosted By CNN’s Soledad O’Brien and Tyler Perry Honoring Bishop T.D. Jakes

 

Dropping in for a quick Mary Mary update!

Thank you so much for all the kind tweets, comments and posts supporting our show, new album and inspiring us everyday. We had a blast on Friday at the star studded surprise event for Faith-based entertainment mogul, Bishop T.D. Jakes. He  was honored by worldwide dignitaries, leaders, and celebrities in a surprise gala commemorating his 35 years of ministry and service. Hosted by CNN’s Soledad O’Brien and director/writer/producer, Tyler Perry – we all came together  in Dallas, TX to showcase our support and admiration for his flourishing career and global impact and influence.

 We performed, Yesterday, and were joined by Oprah Winfrey, Emmit Smith, Gayle King, BeBe Winans, Chaka Khan, Kelly Price, Derek Luke, Megan Good, Bernice King, Ledisi, Jordin Sparks, and more. Additionally – video presentations were given by luminaries such as former President Bill Clinton, Dr. Phil McGraw, and the Mandela family among others.  

 The gala took place just a few days after a whirlwind week for us where we attended the 7th Annual Cinderella Ball in Washington DC (a fundraiser seeking to improve the quality of life for children with disabilities and life-threatening diseases) and performed at NYC’s Apollo Theater’s Hall of Fame induction for Lionel Richie and Etta James.

We’re also tapping the show as we speak so stay tuned for Season Two of Mary Mary!

Tina & Teddy Campbell Are Expecting Their 5th Child!

Tina Campbell, half of the multi-Grammy Award-winning sister duo, Mary Mary, has just announced that she and husband, Teddy Campbell are expecting. The proud and devoted parents of four children are thrilled to welcome a new addition to their family.

Tina’s announcement comes on the heels of sister and duo mate Erica and husband Warryn Campbell’s arrival of their new baby girl Zaya Monique. The sisters Campbell are no strangers to delivering their children in close proximity to each other. In years’past, both couples have had children within months of the other.

The news also arrives in the midst of the duo’s promotion for their new reality series on WE tv, premiering on March 29, 2012, along with yesterday’s news of a Dove Award nomination for Urban Album of the Year for their highly successful 2011 album, Something Big. The nomination arrives in close proximity to the release of anew My Block/Columbia Records single, “Go Get It,” the title track to the upcoming May album.

Next month, America will have a first glimpse of how the couple, along with sister Erica and producer/husband Warryn Campbell, balance their relationship, family life, individual careers – Teddy Campbell is the drummer of the famous Ricky Minor Band and plays nightly on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and the day-to-day moments in the life of Mary Mary, when the self-titled reality series launches. Mary Marypremiers on WE tv Thursday, March 29th at 10pm ET/PT, then continues each week at 9pm ET/PT with ten, hour-long episodes.
