Mary Mary’s Erica Campbell: 'it just takes a health scare and you change'

On the personal side Erica is the loving wife of the group's award winning and platinum selling producer – Warryn Campbell, II. Erica & Warryn will be celebrating 11 amazing years of marriage this May. Together this dynamic duo not only racked up hits on the charts and awards galore, but all of that pales in comparison to their greatest productions; their 3 beautiful children; 7 year old Krista Nicole, almost 2 year old Warryn III and their newest arrival in January, little Ms. Zaya Monique. These two make beautiful music and beautiful babies together.

Erica is the big sister of the group; the ladies are 2 years and 2 days apart; and have spent their lives in parallel to one another. They both often reflect on the fact that either one of them couldn't see themselves paired up with anyone else.

At the end of Season 2, Erica embraced the start of a solo career and break from the duo. Mary Mary was renewed for a third season.

Gospel star James Fortune brings good fortune

James Fortune and Vashawn Mitchell took the light of Christ to St. Jude.

If anyone knows what it means to survive, it is James Fortune. Having lived through a situation of despair, Fortune has overcome the impossible and is a true testimony of faith and perseverance. This is the message he wants to share with the rest of the world.

Having been a supporter since 2010, the award-winning gospel star has visited St. Jude Children's Hospital several times and performed a benefit concert, continuing to give support and love to the children there who suffer from all types and stages of cancer and other life threatening diseases. He is intimately invested in the work of the hospital and is rallying for others to do the same.

On February 8th, while currently headlining the United As One Tour, Fortune visited St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Memphis with fellow artist and brother in Christ VaShawn Mitchell. The visit was a much welcomed surprise – especially for a special 4-year old boy, diagnosed with pineoblastoma. Visits like these are what Fortune encourages his family and celebrity friends to do to continue to raise awareness and the funds to keep St. Jude's operating on a regular basis. With the generosity of Fortune, and other countless donors, St. Jude's is able to treat the world's sickest children at no cost or additional stress to their families.

"When St. Jude's was established, there was only a 4% survival rate for kids with cancer. Now it's up over 90%!!!

That shows you how important that St. Jude's work is for our children. My prayer is that everyone would become a partner in hope. Visit for more information." says Fortune.
