ASCAP Golden Note Award and most recently the Lifetime Achievment Award it is safe to
say Mary Mary is a BIG deal.
Now solo, Erica Campbell has been going hard to promote her new album “Help”.
In a recent interview with HipHollywood Campbell talks about the difficulty of being a gospel artist when
churches want to pay you with "chicken dinners as payment".
Some fans feel as though gospel music should be free! But like other entertainers (and working folks)
Campbell and artists like her have to eat and feed their families too! So all of the REAL fans out there,
buy those tickets to the concerts and stop being cheap.
I don’t judge people because they don’t know, I’m just very willing to educate them on what it takes and what is required.”
But she’s confident in her new album as she said
“I put my heart in this album… my heart is on my sleeve.” Please “Help” save this talented artist from chicken dinners. Her album, of the same name as her single, is in stores now!
