One of Gospel music’s most dynamic duos has grabbed top spots in the Gospel Song and Gospel Album categories. Mary Mary’s latest CD “The Sound” holds the top spot in part because of the success of the disc’s #1 hit single “God In Me.”
The Sound has occupied the #1 slot on the Billboard Gospel Album chart for more than six months since its release in October 2008 and has been #1 for 15 consecutive weeks beginning April 19. The Sound has also spent four weeks at #1 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart.
This latest single features Kierra “Kiki” Sheard on the track with the visionary blending of urban, hip-hop and pop elements that is the signature sound of Mary Mary.
Mary Mary performed “God In Me,” with guest artist Queen Latifah, at the 2009 BET Awards, where the pair was named this year’s Best Gospel Artist.
The sister duo also took this year’s NAACP Image Award for Best Gospel Artist (Traditional or Contemporary).
