I recently sat down with one of my favs, Tina Campbell. We all know she’s the multiple award winning soloist, multi Grammy® winning recording artist, author, WE tv original series star, and now web series star, who, with sister Erica is one-half of the iconic Gospel duo, Mary Mary.
In the coming weeks Tina returns with her newest solo album, It’s Still Personal, the follow-up to 2015’s solo debut, It’s Personal. A re-working of the NAACP Image Award winner for Outstanding Gospel Album in 2016, It’s Still Personal features three new original tracks—the heart felt new single, “Too Hard Not To,” plus a rousing soulful Southern Gospel tune, “Evidence,” and the rap/hip hop tinged “We Livin.” The singer also includes a re-production of the previously recorded track “Woh, Oh, Oh.”
Along with husband Teddy Campbell and Grammy® winning producer Warryn Campbell, among others, Tina set out to create a series of new songs representing multiple musical genres, from the pop sounding, inspirational ballad, “Too Hard Not To,” to World Music/Caribbean sounds and Southern Gospel to Hip Hop and Urban Soul, to Praise & Worship, and even Country/Rock, all while shining a white-hot spotlight on her inimitable and powerful vocal range, and her ongoing impact as a songwriter/producer.
The creation and recording of It’s Still Personal will be highlighted throughout the upcoming Season 6 of Tina’s original hit WE tv series, “Mary Mary.”
“It’s a tremendous blessing to write and sing songs, and author books, and produce shows, and share my life, and communicate my faith, and fully be who I am and have the platforms on which to do so. My sole desire is to inspire, with God as my source of inspiration. I believe this new single and upcoming album, my returning reality show and web series, and all my endeavors, afford me the opportunity to do just that,” the singer stated.
Along with her husband Teddy, Tina currently co-hosts the couple’s popular web series, 10 Minutes with Teddy and Tina, a bi-weekly series discussing life, love, family and faith. The series has reached over 200,000 views and counting. Watch it here.
While on her promo tour in Atlanta, we talked about her new music, her webseries, and the new season of Mary Mary airing this fall on WEtv. Watch us below!
