EXCLUSIVE - Inspiration Behind "Walking"

Biography

Fearless. That one word eloquently captures the creative spirit of groundbreaking duo Mary Mary. Ever since siblings Erica Campbell and Tina Campbell broke through in 2000 with the pioneering crossover hit “Shackles (Praise You),” the chart-topping sister act has never wavered from defying convention to fulfill its mission: sending uplifting messages through music and words that ...

Editorial Reviews

The Sound album released in 2008 shows Mary Mary are not ones to shy away from in-your-face declarations of faith, the girls are now more intentional than ever about whom they adore, without for a moment compromising their call to innovation and growth. The introspective 'Seattle' is a prime example, a pensive prayer that asks the Lord to descend upon the soul the same way rain falls on the Emerald City. In the vein of Mary Mary standards 'Can't Give Up Now' and 'Yesterday,' a couple of ballads on The Sound stand out for their passionate delivery: 'I Trust You' (feat. Marvin Winans) and 'I Worship You' are easily the sonic and spiritual plateaus of the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting grab-bag of sounds from Mary Mary. October 14, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When Mary Mary released their debut album, Thankful, in 2000, they took the gospel world by storm and flipped it upside down. Never had an artist or group so masterfully combined the sounds of contemporary rhythm and blues and the message of traditional gospel. Thankful went on to become a huge success, with a top 10 R&B single ("Shackles") and a platinum plaque. Their sophomore album, Incredible, was certified gold. Since Mary Mary was so successful, their main prodcucer Warryn "Baby Dubb" Campbell became very in-demand in the contemporary gospel--and even plain R&B--world. Soon, there were many songs that were crafted after the original sound of Mary Mary. Being wise, Erica and Tina refused to keep on with the same sound, so on their self-titled third album, they explored new genres, such as club and even big band.

With this album, they chose to broaden their sound even more, making the title extremely appropriate. Throughout the first half of The Sound, Mary Mary tries their hand at some of the musical trends of the past (and the present) and they of course add their wonderful messages atop the wonderfully produced tracks. "The Sound" is a surprising mix of a 60's girl group tune and surfer pop/rock. The first single, "Get Up," is an inspirational dance track which switches tempos and volumes to excite the listener. "Superfriend" with David Banner is a triumphant hip-hop anthem and "God In Me" utilizes--but doesn't rely one--the vocoder, recently popularized by T-Pain. (But actually... they used it way before him on tracks like "Shackles.") It features Kierra "KiKi" Sheard, whose voice has become much more mature and incredible over the past few years. "Boom" is a R&B up-tempo with a catchy chorus.

5.0 out of 5 stars FOR THOSE WHO THINK THE CD IS TOO SECULAR March 3, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Let's try an experiment. Take the music you listen to and give a copy of it to a hardened up heathen that has no interest in serving GOD and then give them the option of choosing between that or this cd. Wait for it. Even if they take your cd out of sheer niceness (and wow if they do), go back a week later and see weather or not your music has started collecting dust yet. The world is made up of many different types of people-MANY. Great chance is that your music or means of ministering will never reach a certain majority and weather you like it or not, THIS MUSIC WILL GET WHERE IT NEEDS TO AND REACH WHO IT NEEDS TO. It reached me! I am a "recovering backslider" who even before hearing this music and being influenced to write this review, was actively trying to stay in the fight. But I was depressed-deeply. My ears told me that this is music that doesn't continue digging the depressing hole I am in- because it is not S_L_O_W (and "christiany" as is your opinion) so excuse me if the music causes me to tap my feet and it doesn't include expletives and it includes a loving, GOD serving, positive message. I actually started out judging this music but tried it out anyway and what do you know- I started to feel it in my depression! As human beings, it is our flaw that we only see things from our perspective. Leave the judging to GOD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent Mary Mary CD! October 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Every song on this CD is excellent. I love the radio station format and the mix of musical styles. When I first saw that David Banner was featured on one of the songs, I rolled my eyes...but then I listened to the track. His verse on Superfriend comes across as sincere. Each track has a great beat, but the words are so meaningful. Seattle is one of my favorites on the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars not your moms christian music December 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I like this CD. It sounds like your listening to the radio because between each song the announcer comes on and says your listening to the sound. You can't beat the songs on this CD. They are not your moms christian music. It has a upbeat popular music sound and is very uplifting and real.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite the Sound! December 26, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This CD definitely brings a different "sound" from Mary Mary. The music is wonderful and varied - it catches your attention from the very first track. You definitely notice it is something different from the everyday gospel album, but it is not at all short on Godly lyrics. My personal favorite "God in Me", though with a hip-hop/R&B feel, the message in the lyrics are so strong and so reflective of the daily walk of so many Christian young women that it nearly brought me to tears.

It is absolutely excellent, and I highly recommend it not only for Mary Mary fans and other fans of gospel music but for music lovers in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can only say good things about this CD... February 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My daughters both highly recommended this CD by Mary, Mary. But it wasn't until I saw a video of "I Worship You" that I decided to check it out. I listened to the sample tracks, and despite some of the negative reviews here, I bought it.

Thank God I did not listen to the bad press! This is THE most praise and worship-filled Christian CD I have bought in a long time. The songs lift my spirits and send me to a place of worship and adoration of my Lord that I never want to come down from.

I am of the belief that Believers don't have to say "Jesus" or "God" or "Praise the Lord" every other word for the act of worship and adoration to be realized. Mary, Mary has hit that place with this CD. There is no mistaking Who these ladies are devoted to. God has given them a versatility in their music that helps deliver His message to a wide audience.

What I learned from this particular purchase is to listen for myself and let the Spirit speak to my heart about what praise and worship is and what it is not.

I like the whole CD, and the songs that bring tears to my eyes especially are: God in Me, I'm Running (includes Psalm 42, one of my favorites), Forgiven Me, Seattle, I Worship You, and It Will All Be Worth It. I think that is almost the entire CD! :-)

Full of positive energy! This cd was produced to give the listener the feel of a dj spinning records on the radio. This is how you get the secular world's attention. Read more

When Gospel music is no longer ministry but an Industry...
I can understand what you're saying and don't disagree but some people just want a good gospel song with a cool beat you can dance to. I don't think you should expect every song to necessarily be praise and worship. Some might just be a testimony. Maybe you can categorize this under praise or... Read more
