About Mary Mary - Erica and Tina Atkins

The name evokes an appeal to above, a spiritual call, a joyful noise. Which is why singer, songwriter, sisters Erica and Tina Atkins chose "Mary Mary" as their performance moniker. Mary Mary's music -- sometimes co-written and all produced by hot R&B/hip-hop producer Warryn Campbell (whose work has appeared on albums by Brandy, Boyz II Men, Shanice, Dru Hill, and others) -- is contemporary and caring, funky and faithful, surprising, soulful and deeply spiritual. Thankful, the group's debut album is pure gospel, made for those who may not yet have been touched by The Word but will be moved by the beat.

With voices steeped in soulful intensity, melodies that soar engagingly above the beats, and affirming lyrics that combine traditional gospel concepts with rhythmic immediacy. These young women have created a glorious package that delivers the straightforward message of God's love consistently through every bumping track, starting with the guitar-driven "I Sings," in which Tina and Erica raise their voices in praise of all their blessings.

At a time when other gospel artists have already made strides into secular arenas with ever-more contemporary R&B tracks, Mary Mary have carried the art of creating modern praise music into a new category of creativity, honesty, originality, and soulfulness. It's these qualities that have made the sisters sought after as songwriters by such other artists as Yolanda Adams, Woody of Dru Hill, and 702.



About their "Shackles" song ...... I also love that one song from Mary Mary. "Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance, I just wanna praise you" that song always gets me going . It's too expensive for the whole cd when I just want the whole song, but I guess it's worth it. Anyhow christian music is the best, sometimes well, 65% of the time It looses my attention cuz it's all mixed but when I do hear a good song, you can bet I'm singin it loud. I attend Celebration Christian Church in Fresno, CA. I'm 21, our youth and college kids love the music, it's good and it feeds us the word, without us even knowing it. Thanks and we'll always be listening.

I love Mary Mary

Hi, I'm 15, my name is Kirsty and I'm from England (GB) I love Mary Mary. Those sisters have helped me believe in myself with their song "Little Girl" on their new album. I have praised through "Shackles", I have beeen blessed by "Incredible" and "Witnessed Through 1 Minute". I think it is a great encouragement to christian artists in the charts as a few of my friends went straight out and bought shckles unaware of the content until they heard the truth. Now one friend is coming to my youth group and has stopped reading her starsigns and swearing,and, even watching Buffy!

Praise God! God bless and keep the faith.

Hi, my name is Kalei , I'm 14 years old, and I'm from Hawaii. One day I was listening to the radio and all of a sudden your song "Shackles" came on and I really liked the beat to it. I let all my friends listen to the song the next day and they all thought that you guys were an outside group like Destiny's Child and 3LW, but I told them that you guys were a christian group and they were really amazed from that day on. I listen your song "Shackles" and thankful everyday now. I listen to "Thankful" everyday when I wake up for school. I'm so thankful that God has blessed me with your music. I'm very thankful for you both.

Much love and ALOHA, God bless you both...
