This weekend we sat down with Erica Campbell, one half of the Gospel duo Mary Mary, who was in London as a special guest to support Britain’s own Annastasia Baker, a former The X-Factor UK contestant in concert, at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

 

The ‘A Little More Jesus’ singer was in the UK with a tight promo schedule for her new album Help 2.0, but we managed to catch-up with Erica at a press conference held at the Aloft Excel Hotel. Giving the meet ran over two hours behind time, we were allocated just one question per artist and with that in mind, we had to make sure that tea would be served from this opportunity.

 

 

 

We always reach out to our Team Mates (what we call our readers), for their question suggestions, through social media before interviewing stars & with a little bit of remixing we felt confident to ask the 43-year old WeTV reality star her thoughts on Transsexuals and Gays within the Gospel & Church.

This comes after the debate in which some say Gospel music in 2015 is merging into secular genres, the mass media coverage of Transgender stars who recognise themselves as believers of God, such as Laverne Cox, of the Netflix television series Orange Is The New Black & also this year’s legislation of Gay marriage in the U.S.

 

 

 

“I believe sin is sin and it exists and God forgives it just like everything else. I think our responsibility is to keep singing about Jesus. Keep telling the world he loves, saves, transforms and heals. I know there’s a lot of different conversations about the origins and the why’s and the how’s and I wish I had the answers to it, but I do not. But what I do know is that the Bible says that God so loved the world — it didn’t say the heterosexual or the homosexual; it didn’t say the Christian, the saved or the unsaved. It said for God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whosoever should believe in him, should not parish but have everlasting life. So that’s the only thing I can stay confident in. I rest on the word of God. I stand on the word of God. And we will all stand before him. And God won’t ask me my opinion. He won’t ask the people their opinion. We’ll have a one-on-one with the father.

 

Keep sharing, keep loving, keep opening the doors of our churches, keep embracing and let God do the changing. I think a lot of times we try to be God. We try to make the change. Everybody has an issue. Sometimes peoples [issue] is a little more flamboyant than others. Maybe yours is lying and we can’t see your issue. We all have something to work on…My job is to love, not to judge.”

Our second question – still to come.

 

 

Any thoughts on this?
