Grammy Award-winning songstress Erica Campbell may seem to have it all, but that is far from the truth. Just like the rest of us, her family has been through serious ups and downs but they have come out of them stronger. As she poses with her nearest and dearest, she takes the time to talk about forgiveness.
One half of world-renowned gospel group Mary Mary, Erica Campbell is opening up her family to the world. Erica, her husband, world-renowned music producer/pastor Warryn Campbell, their children and extended family, are the cast of a docu-series, "We're the Campbells," that debuts this June.
The 9-episode series will give fans of the artists and their three children Warryn, Zaya and teenager Krista a glimpse into their lives. They will tell it all including incidences of cheating and marital challenges.
Campbell, who has been on reality TV before with her sister, Tina, says viewers will see what happens behind the scenes and how the couple manages busy careers, a church, marriage, and a family.
"I know a lot of times you actually don't see the kids and the issues, but we're really tapping into what happens with kids — feeling accepted, colorism, self–acceptance — all the while trying to manage our faith, our family. I love my relationship with my kids and we know that it mirrors a lot of other people's relationships. A lot of other parents are trying to figure out how to deal with these things. We've been given a platform and a voice of influence and that's a blessing, so it allows us the opportunity to share our experience with other families giving them something to watch together."
The singer told Christian Post that love was what kept them going. "Truth does sting but when truth is wrapped in love, you can always at least listen to it. And it makes it open for conversation when the truth doesn't come with judgment or condemnation.”
In a 2017 clip aired on Own Network's "Black Love," Campbell and her award-winning husband opened up about his "selfish behavior" that led him to cheat. They have since forgiven and moved on and hope to convey the same to their viewers when the show airs.
