Erica Campbell brings light on a daily basis to the Get Up! church, and we couldn’t thank her enough — you too, GRIFF! — for sharing her love for God with the loyal listeners every morning.
This weekend, coinciding with her Mary Mary Easter Special VERZUZ celebration with BeBe & CeCe Winans, EC will also be the subject of TV One’s latest episode of UNCENSORED.
The gospel icon shares some personal details in her upcoming episode of UNCENSORED, including early days of growing up in California and having to actually be forced as a child to become a singer as she describes in the clip above.
