On March 27th, 2012 Gospel duo Mary Mary (Erica & Tina Campbell) hosted a pre-screening event of their new reality TV series “Mary Mary” is set to premiere on Thursday March 29th, 2012 at 10pm on the WETv cable network. The event included a cocktail hour, screening of the first episode, and a Q&A session after the screening. Some major and smaller media outlets were in attendance, and there was a broad scope of media entities–not just Gospel. Mary Mary are the first Gospel artists to have a feature reality TV series on a non-faith based network. This is groundbreaking and exciting. The event was a wonderful coming together of mediums to celebrate and get a sneak peak into the lives of the ladies behind the dynamic group, Mary Mary. WEtv executives were present and very excited about this new show. The show definitely supports the mantra of WEtv, whose slogan states “life as WE know it”. Tina and Erica Campbell both serve as executive producers of the show. The ladies are opening up their lives, homes, hearts, and families to America through this platform. We have seen some of this with the recent success of “The Braxton Family Values” series. Tina and Erica Campbell are representative of the Gospel music world on television through this series, and WEtv seems committed to be apart of introducing the world to this difference.

During the Q&A session the ladies talked about a myriad of topics. They discussed their commitment to their families and their craft. This also shines through on the series. They talked about the importance of supporting, loving, and esteeming their husbands in what is considered the traditional Christian way– as the head of their households. Their goal is to bring a different perspectives of marriage, business, and family. They hope to inspire with their lives. Below are some photos from the event:
