Mary Mary Implores You to ‘Get Up’

marymary_getup.jpgWhatever you want to call the great news that was delivered late last night — a blessing, an inevitability, a sign of good judgment — a giving of thanks is absolutely due. The news that Mary Mary will be releasing a new album, The Sound, clandestinely appeared on my computer screen at almost the same moment the BWA Awards list was posted. Be it a coincidence or something bigger, it was an exciting find.

In terms of contemporary Christian singing groups, sisters Erica and
Tina Campbell
are among the most talented. Not only does their music
have great cross-over appeal, their strong voices and empowering
message are always a welcome contrast to the often abysmal secular
music scene. If the lead single from the duo’s first new album since
2006, “Get Up,” is any indication of the rest of The Sound, then it will
definitely be worth a listen. “Get Up” starts off somewhat
underwhelmingly, but the first chorus comes in hard and by the end it’s
difficult not to nod along to the affirming message and danceable
beat. [ET]
