In a day and age when it seems some celebrities will do anything to keep their names circulating in the news, “Mary Mary” star/singer Erica Campbell said she’s not compromising.
“I would never sacrifice my destiny for a dollar sign, and I think far too often in entertainment, we do that,” Erica told Sister 2 Sister.
The gospel artist said she and her sister have been approached several times about expanding their repertoire to include R&B music, but Erica said they refused.
“They absolutely told us that there would be another million dollars on top of the offer if we sang R&B. They offered us that several times, even after the first record came out,” she said. “We were never tempted by that because I think serving your purpose in life and knowing your place and your position and living out your destiny is much more important than a dollar sign.”
