Mary Mary Gospel Music Duo

Gospel Music Concert: Mary Mary, comprising sisters Erica Atkins-Campbell and Trecina Atkins-Campbell, crossed boundaries and helped establish urban contemporary gospel with its first single, “Shackles (Praise You),” which not only went to No. 1 on U.S. Gospel charts, but also soared up R&B, pop and dance lists worldwide.

With Kirk Franklin, who performed in Tuscaloosa earlier this month for the 2017 Realizing the Dream concert, Mary Mary was among forerunners blending soul, jazz, hip hop, funk and more with gospel. The band name was inspired by two Marys from the Christian Bible: the mother of Jesus, and Mary Magdalene.

Tasha Cobbs, born Natasha Tameika Cobbs in Jesup, Ga., hit the top of gospel album charts with her 2013 EP “Grace” and 2015’s “One Place Live.” She won the Grammy for Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance in 2014 for a live version of her No. 1 hit “Break Every Chain.” Cobbs’ “For Your Glory” also went to No. 1, and her single “Put a Praise on It” hit No. 2.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 3 for the 7 p.m. April 8 show.  Read more… tuscaloosanews.com
