Best Urban Gospel Artist: Mary Mary

Sony Music Entertainment
Sisters Erica and Tina Campbell hit the music scene running and they haven't slowed down since. Their fans reach beyond the Gospel music scope into the mainstream, so it's no surprise that they won the Best Urban Gospel Artist category with 42% of the vote.

Erica and Tina grew up as part of a large family of nine children in Inglewood, California. Church was always important to the family with their mom being a choir director and their dad a youth pastor. As they grew, they went from church choirs to being a duo and their 2000 debut album on Columbia Records won a Grammy and went RIAA platinum. Stellar awards have followed since, as has a book and even a clothing line.
