Fearless. That one word eloquently captures the creative spirit of groundbreaking duo Mary Mary. Ever since siblings Erica Campbell and Tina Campbell broke through in 2000 with the pioneering crossover hit “Shackles (Praise You),” the chart-topping sister act has never wavered from defying convention to fulfill its mission: sending uplifting messages through music and words that are relatable to everyone. “It’s about making music that touches both adults and young people,” says Erica.
An amazing 10 years later, having earned 3 Grammy Awards, 2 American Music Awards, an NAACP Image Award and a BET Award, the “Mary Mary way” sounds just as fresh and innovative on the duo’s sixth album, the aptly titled SOMETHING BIG(My Block/Columbia/Sony Music; March 29, 2011). This vibrant outing, once again produced by longtime collaborator Warryn Campbell, picks up where the group’s most recent mainstream success story, 2008’s The Soundand its Grammy Award-winning smash hit “God in Me,” left off. In March 2011 - Mary Mary burst on to the charts in the TOP 10 with SOMETHING BIG - the ladies 6th studio offering. Something Big turned out to be just that with 2 Grammy nominations and an NAACP Image Award Nomination and 2 Stellar Awards; once again Mary Mary did not disappoint.
On the personal side Erica is the loving wife of the group's award winning and platinum selling producer - Warryn Campbell, II. Erica & Warryn will be celebrating 11 amazing years of marriage this May. Together this dynamic duo not only racked up hits on the charts and awards galore, but all of that pales in comparison to their greatest productions; their 3 beautiful children; 7 year old Krista Nicole, almost 2 year old Warryn III and their newest arrival in January, little Ms. Zaya Monique. These two make beautiful music and beautiful babies together. Erica is the big sister of the group; the ladies are 2 years and 2 days apart; and have spent their lives in parallel to one another. They both often reflect on the fact that either one of them couldn't see themselves paired up with anyone else.
