Mary Mary Cancel Christmas Tour On Doctors Advice

Dec 07 2011

Gospel sister duo Mary Mary have been forced to cancel their much anticipated first ever Christmas tour. Singer Erica Campbel has been advised by doctors that she cannot continue working at her current pace without risk to the delivery of her forthcoming baby, due in February 2012. After careful consideration, the ladies have determined it is best to cancel the entire 'Have A Mary Mary Christmas Tour', including their New Year's Eve show.

"Amidst an unprecedented run of award shows, nominations, non-stop travel for holiday performances and a television series taping underway, the star sister duo, Mary Mary's Erica and Tina Campbell, is regretfully forced to cancel their much anticipated first ever 'Have A Mary Mary Christmas Tour' as Erica's February due date draws near", said the group in an official announcement.

The duo's packed year has included numerous high-profile national television appearances, including performances on the NAACP Image Awards, The Talk, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno twice, The Mo'Nique Show, BET's 'Black Girls Rock,' The Soul Train Music Awards, ABC's Magnificent Mile Lights Festival, and Macy's Atlanta Thankgsiving Day Great Tree Lighting as well as an interview on Good Morning America.

Last week it was announced that Mary Mary's latest album 'Something Big', released in March 2011, has received two Grammy Award Nominations.

"We fully intend to return to our passion and our commitment to music in late spring and look forward to rescheduling the 'Have A Mary Mary Christmas Tour' in 2012" said Tina Campbell. Erica admitted, "This was a very hard decision for me. I'm accustomed to pushing myself beyond my doctor recommendations during my pregnancies, but after having seen my sister, Tina, deal with a premature birth as a direct result of an exhaustive pace, I recognize how real this is. Although my passion told me to push on as usual in these past months, my wisdom, as of my last week's doctor's visit, told me to take care of myself and my new baby-to-be. Just know that I have the greatest passion for whom I sing about and a great love and respect for whom I sing to, so I'll be back to what I live for as soon as I take care of mommy business."

Writing on Twitter, the sisters added "We have the best fans! Thx everyone for the love, support and understanding why we had to cancel our Christmas tour."
