The weekend was one Tamela Mann will not soon forget. In a trifecta of honors, Gospel Music’s “IT” Girl took home her first Grammy® Award for Best Gospel Performance Song for “God Provides” from her Billboard No. 1 album One Way, nabbed her second NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Gospel Album for One Way, and joined fellow Grammy® Award winners Chance the Rapper and Kirk Franklin on the Grammy® Awards CBS telecast for an electric performance that has fans abuzz. The trio took the stage by storm, performing the “How Great” / “All We Got” medley, two songs from Chance The Rapper’s Grammy® Award winning album, Coloring Book.
“I want to thank my husband – he’s the best producer, baby daddy and my everything. Thank you to everyone that’s been a part of this album, thank you for believing in me. To God be the glory,” said Tamela following the acceptance of her Grammy® Award.
Tamela’s husband, manager, label business partner, comedian David Mann said, “For the first time, tonight I get to make love to a Grammy Award winner!”
Tamela owned the Grammy® red carpet wearing a custom Red Village Design and wowed viewers during her performance in one-of-a-kind Maria Harper dress.
