During the Gospel industry’s biggest weekend, The Stellar Awards, it’s no surprise that amidst performances, appearances and events, announcements of all kinds are made!

The award-winning duo and now reality television stars Mary Mary (Erica & Tina) spoke to media representatives backstage after hosting the 28th Stellar Awards with Kirk Franklin. When asked what we could expect next from the ladies, Erica responded that we can expect for them to do some things apart from one another. Erica shared that she will indeed release a solo project. Tina explained that she will be doing some of her own things as well, though no detail was given on what those things might be. The sisters were smiling and chatty, excited about changes on the horizon. “Mary Mary isn’t going anywhere. We aren’t breaking up and you will definitely hear more from Mary Mary in the future.” This didn’t seem to be the result of dispute or disagreement. Both sisters appeared pleased and hopeful.

Erica went on to say, that the ladies have been seen and promoted as sisters for so long. While they’ve enjoyed and appreciated that, they look forward to being able to do some things that allow them to express their individuality. “People sometimes call me ‘Mary.’ They don’t even know that my name is Erica,” Campbell said.

When asked if her husband (super producer Warryn Campbell) would work on her record, Erica smiled and said, “Well, of course!”

This news also comes on the heels of mounting speculation and rumors that the sisters might be headed for “spilitsville” when previews from their reality show hit the Internet. The teasers showed the sisters engaged in a few heated scenes hinting at some major discord.

I’m excited for these ladies getting a chance to switch it up a bit and do some things they’d like to enjoy! What do you guys think? Will it work with Erica going solo or do you prefer them as a duo?? WEIGH IN NOW!
