Ben Patton Staff Media Lead Grammy nominated Gospel singer Erica Campbell, famously known her part of sister-sister duo Mary Mary, has come under fire in recent weeks for a promotional photo for her upcoming solo debut. The singer who is releasing her solo album titled Help on March 25th of next year, has come under fire from various religious groups for the promotional photo being used for her album. According to Clutch Magazine, a member of Impact Outreach Ministries, Inc. took aim at Campbell via Facebook saying,  “THIS IS NOT OKAY. Yes, you are a beautiful, curvy woman…but NO MA’AM YOU ARE SINGING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. Saints…smh COME ON.” Campbell has responded to critics in an interview with Essence.com saying,  "This is about confidence and realizing that God made you and that you are beautiful just the way you are," she said. "I think that young girls shouldn't only get sexy images from people who are not proclaiming Jesus. But I am. And I'm cute too." Erica also says she had the support of family during the shoot, which in my opinion yielded a pretty gorgeous photo! Erica’s lead single “A Little More Jesus” is nominated for Best Gospel song at the 56th Grammy Awards coming up in January on CBS. http://www.Twitter.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.tumblr.com http://www.SoundCloud.com/PopWrapped http://www.Facebook.com/PopWrapped http://www.Instagram.com/PopWrapped http://www.Pinterest.com/PopWrapped http://www.YouTube.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.wordpress.com http://www.PopWrapped.com
