Natives of Inglewood, Calif., sisters Erica and Tina Campbell began developing their crystalline harmonies as children in their local church choir. In 2000 Mary Mary released their debut album, Thankful, which topped Billboard's Gospel Albums chart and earned the duo their first GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Soul Gospel Album. Incredible followed in 2002, which topped the Gospel Albums chart again and featured a cover of Stevie Wonder's "You Will Know." In 2005 Mary Mary earned a nomination for Best Contemporary Soul Gospel Album for their self-titled release, which shot to No. 8 on the Billboard 200. Produced by Erica's husband, Warryn Campbell, 2008's The Sound peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200, their highest-charting album to date.
