Erica Campbell Holds BET “Twitterview” With Fans

Erica Campbell

In preparation for Sunday’s big BET “Celebration of Gospel” broadcast, an well-known artist gave followers a peek inside her world.

Grammy Award-winning gospel singer Erica Campbell got up close and personal with fans during a BET “Twitterview.”

Here are 8 things EEW Magazine learned about the 43-year-old chart-topper from her Jan. 29 Q&A, hosted on Twitter.

 1. She had a blast collaborating with “Empire” star Bryshere Yazz Gray for her “Celebration of Gospel” performance of “I Luh God.”

BET wanted collaborations and I heard he was a fan of the song so we agreed to perform together,” Erica told fans on Twitter. Even though the actor’s character can be a bit difficult and wayward on the show, that’s not the case in real life.

“[It was] great working with him. He’s super nice! Behind the scenes he was laid back relaxed & a lot of fun [while] working out our performance,” she said.

2. Erica wishes she wouldn’t have wasted so much time worrying when she first went solo.

“[I] wish I would not have worried about how things would turn out! God had me then [and] He has me now,” tweeted Erica. She has spoken frequently about her past fear of temporarily breaking away from her sister Tina Campbell of the award-winning duo “Mary Mary” to step out on her own.

But now, after such tremendous success—even winning a Grammy award—Erica’s new motto is, “No fear just faith.”

3. Erica is using non-music related projects to connect the gospel to the masses.

During her Twitterview, the entrepreneurial vocalist plugged her new hair line, “Erica By Erica Campbell,” “I Luh God” t-shirts and her “More Than Pretty” empowerment conferences. “Trying to reach as many people as possible,” she wrote, explaining the reason behind each separate venture.

4. The new season of Mary Mary may not be as drama-filled as the previous ones.

If you’ve been praying for peace and love for the Campbells, your prayers haven’t been bouncing off the sky. Although previously, Tina and Erica have yelled, attacked, broken up with management and each other on their hit WE tv reality show, “Mary Mary,” Season 5, according to Erica, has a different focus.

It’s “about decisions, changes, forgiveness and acceptance! It’s all family and all Love,” she said.
