Bruno Mars may be a king of the pop charts while Mary Mary have reigned on the Gospel charts, but in this week’s Mashup Monday the soulful voices of the Mary Mary sisters turn Mars’ hit “Just The Way You Are” into an ode of parental love.
“I want [my daughter] to know she’s beautiful just the way she is,” Mary Mary’s Erika Atkins-Campbell says of why the duo decided to flip the focus of the song. “Sorry Bruno, I know you were singing it to a chick, but I’m singing it to my baby girl”
“I remember the first time hearing that song in my car on the radio,” Tina Atkins-Campbell says, adding that she immediately felt “you could sing this song to your daughter, you could sing this song to your mama, your grandma, your auntie, any woman that’s special in your life.”
