Item description for Transparent by Mary Mary, Erica Campbell & Tina Campbell...
Like any famous music group, Mary Mary has a significant fan base. While most celebrities' fans would be content knowing their group's favourite colours or fashion designers, the fans of Mary Mary look for more from this groundbreaking duo: they want to know how to live a creative, successful Christian life. In sharing Mary Mary's story, this is as much a guide to life as it is a biography. Many Christians, including musicians and other entertainers, have felt the push to sacrifice their morals or abandon their faith in exchange for commercial success. But legions of Christian fans hunger for artists who have 'made it' without compromising their walks with God. Mary Mary is one such group -- and with a Grammy, a Soul Train Award, and an NAACP Image Award nomination to prove it, they have been enormously successful. This book takes readers along on Erica and Tina Atkins' journey from growing up in Inglewood, California, with gospel-singing parents and six other siblings to singing with secular R&B and soul performers, to putting out platinum-selling Christian albums, all without selling out their beliefs.The sisters share how their faith in Jesus Christ helped them to overcome personal and professional obstacles. This book appeals not only to Christians, but also to anyone who appreciates strong music and a strong sense of integrity.

I love Mary Mary (Erica & Tina Campbell). So when I discovered they had written a book, I immediately ordered it. And it did not disappoint. The title "Transparent:Between the fire and the rain is the truth" is nothing but the truth! Full of honest, thought provoking stuff, the sisters are quite candid in sharing about their lives, their successes, trials & tests. The book left me with a real understanding that the stars, singers, actors, etc that we admire and adore are just everyday people like you and me, with hopes, dreams, love of family and all of that. I hope that Erica & Tina would write another book...maybe a sequel to this one!
