Tina Campbell from Mary Mary just gave birth to a newborn baby boy. The baby was born Saturday in Los Angeles. Earlier this year, her sister Erica brought a girl into the world.
Tina and Erica are credited for building a platform for urban contemporary gospel music. Their breakout hit “Shackles” practically created a new genre and it’s been nothing but success ever since. The sisters were born Erica Monique Atkins and Tina Evette Atkins in Inglewood, California.
Coming from a family of nine, both Tina and Erica appreciate the value of family. Because their ages were close in proximity, the two sisters were very close to one another. They even both married men with the last name Campbell, with both men being unrelated.
The sisters have been criticized by some for their willingness to work with secular artists. For example, they worked with the artist T-Pain when creating their song “God in Me.” They’ve also said that they would like to work with even more secular artists, including the rapper TI.
