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!
