When it comes to urban gospel superstars Mary Mary, everything is done on a big scale. All of their pursuits-musical, spiritual, or otherwise-are larger-than-life: not a single thing is left to chance. For them, there’s simply no room for halfway, half-done, half-baked efforts. No matter the venture, the bar is always sky-high. Absolutely everything must be handled with an utmost sense of excellence.
This commitment to greatness isn’t novel for them. As far back as their breakout, career-defining first single, “Shackles (Praise You)” in 2000, Mary Mary have time and again gone for broke. Their landmark fifth album for Columbia Records, THE SOUND, is no different. Hands down, the project is their boldest, most complete work yet-a remarkable milestone in their now decade-long trajectory in music.
“We represent a great, big God who is excellent, so we like to think that our work represents that, too,” says Tina Campbell, one-half of the best-selling duo. “God’s blessings are new every day. He’s blowing our minds every day. We should be able to speak to a new day in a new way.” Her sister Erica Campbell can’t help but concur: “I wholeheartedly agree,” she says.
With nothing to prove, Mary Mary could very well rest on past successes and settle for the middle-of-the-road. After all, they are Grammy, Dove, Stellar, MOBO, and American Music Award winners, and all of their studio albums-2000′s Thankful, 2002′s Incredible, and 2005′s Mary Mary-are either platinum- or gold-certified. But independent of older glories, THE SOUND proves they go it all out, all the time.
Don’t miss Mary Mary this April 9th, it will be great show whether you’re a Church goer or not.
