Tamela Mann has a powerful testimony. She and her husband, David, who starred with her on the Tyler Perry sitcom “Meet the Browns” came from impoverished childhoods in Texas to triumph in the entertainment industry. The couple, who has now been married for 24 years and have four children are now spokespersons for the American Diabetes Association. They are hoping to influence other African-Americans to be healthier and to that end, they are planning to host a cooking show for Bounce TV that will focus on tasty and healthy food.
But while Tamela is experiencing a great deal of success in other areas, music has always been her first love. She is releasing her fifth CD “Best Days” next week. The lead single is “Take Me To The King,” written for Mann by her one of her musical mentors, Kirk Franklin.
