Entertainers, actors and musicians David and Tamela Mann, known as stars of Tyler Perry’s “Meet the Browns,” talked to The Christian Post recently about their new show as well as their take on how broadcast media could and should be utilized for spreading the Christian message.
David Mann is an actor who has also written, directed, and produced numerous plays, including “I Can Do Bad All By Myself,” which gave birth to the nosey, wisecracking character of Mr. Brown. Mann later impersonated that character in the TBS show, Tyler Perry’s “Meet The Browns,” in which he starred alongside his wife, Tamela (who plays Cora Simmons). Acting is something that David Mann used to get in trouble for, he revealed. “I was always acting somewhere,” he said. “It’s just something I always loved. I like to see people laugh, have a good time. I like to bring joy to people.”
Tamela Mann is an actress and singer, as well as a 2011 NAACP Image Award nominee and 2011 Dove Award winner for Traditional Gospel Album of the Year. She has performed alongside artists like Yolanda Adams, Mary J. Blige, Al Green, Celine Dion, Bono, R. Kelly and Fred Hammond. Mann went on to join the gospel musical cast of David E. Talbert as he directed the stage play “He Say…She Say…But What Does God Say?” In 2005, Mann released her solo album titled “Gotta Keep Movin” and in 2007 she released “The Live Experience.” Her primary career is singing, and acting is something she “tripped into,” she told CP.
“Singing is my first love but acting is something that I stumbled upon,” she said. “I guess you can say Tyler Perry saw something in me that I didn’t see in myself.” Mann is currently working on a new CD titled “Best Days.”
