Living the high life powered by hard work, Jesus, and family, David and Tamela Mann, often seen in our living rooms on television and on the big screen, now want to lift you up in more ways than one with a special project.
“Us Against the World” features three elements – a book, album, and tour. The couple told Lee Bailey, in a recent interview at the famous soul food eatery Dulan’s in Los Angeles, that everything they do is about supporting the family. The tour proves that even more.
“Our goal with this tour is to show unity and strength,” said David, who has been married to Tamela for 30 years. “We wanted to do something to encourage family and marriage. We weren’t really looking for a reason to tour but we already knew we were going to do a book tour, and we already had the album, and we were like, ‘Why not combine them? Why not a Mann Family Tour?’”
“I always teach my kids that family is all you have,” Tamela, also a gospel superstar,added. “You’re going to have disagreements but you’re going to have to learn how to agree to disagree instead of everybody trying to be right. Nowadays it’s hard to keep families together because many families are so torn apart.”
In addition to the family message on “Us Against the World – Mann Family Tour,” it will also highlight David’s NAACP Award winning comedy as seen in Tyler Perry productions. Shows/films, including “Meet the Browns,” “Mann and Wife,” and “Madea,” have made both David and Tamela stars.
Now with all of their performances together, their latest marks the first time the two have recorded together and fans will witness their duets onstage. David, who can throw down on the mic, admits competing with Tamela’s stellar gospel vocals, was a challenge.
