Christmas is a 'coming!
Multi-Grammy Award-winning My Block/Columbia recording artists Mary Mary have had an amazing whirlwind 2011 thus far. This year saw the release of their critically acclaimed sixth studio album, Something Big; they garnered the prestigious ASCAP Golden Note Award, a top BET Award, and were recently nominated for double Soul Train Awards for their chart topping single "Walking;" they completed a highly successful tour with co-headliners BeBe & CeCe Winans; and announced exciting new partnerships with The American Red Cross and Pillsbury; all in addition to several high-profile national television appearances. To add yet another dash of excitement to this year's major successes, the inspirational duo has just announced their "Have a Mary Mary Christmas" Tour, kicking off Dec. 8 in Austin, Texas.
Mary Mary's Christmas album, A Mary Mary Christmas, was released back in 2006 to rave reviews. The album boasts a beautiful blend of traditional Christmas classics along with original material, including songs highlighting the uniqueness of Christmas on the West Coast, such as "California Christmas." The album quickly became a seasonal favorite, but fan appreciation will be taken to another level with the live performance element, showcasing how sisters Erica and Tina Campbell celebrate the Christmas season.
The "Have a Mary Mary Christmas" Tour will focus primarily on the Southwest and the West Coast, hitting major cities such as Austin, Houston, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Oakland, and Seattle. The tour's Dec. 8 kick-off comes right on the heels of the Do Something Big initiative – a contest hosted by Mary Mary, encouraging churches across the U.S. to "do something big" in and for their communities. The contest winners will be announced on Dec. 6. The winners will be treated to a full Mary Mary concert at their church and a special breakfast for their community. The contest was created in conjunction with Mary Mary's recent partnership with Pillsbury to launch new frozen breakfast products, and their new role as the voices behind the catchy Pillsbury jingle, "Rhythm of a New Morning."
This tour is sure to embody the joy, spirit and excitement that families all over the world experience during the Christmas season. Don't miss the opportunity to catch Mary Mary singing classic holiday favorites and exciting new material live. The tour dates will range from Dec. through 18.
