St. Jude

Erica Campbell is giving up the Hollywood Secrets to St. Jude

Hey Cuties,

On Friday I chatted with Erica Campbell, one-half of gospel singing group Mary Mary on behalf of St. Jude.  It was like chatting with one of my girlfriends; we clicked and chatted like we’d known one another for years. I love a kindred spirit.  We talked about why she is supporting St. Jude, her new music and new Mary Mary music and more.

You know that I adore St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and they partner with dope people like me. However, they also partner with incredible celebrities that believe in their work and their mission.

Off the break, she asked me if I was still custom designing Converse because she has a four-year-old daughter. Hahaha, I love that she was a fan of my work, that is dope.  Celebrities seem to have the world at their feet; at the end of the day, they are people. They hurt like we hurt and they bleed like we bleed. She shared her truth and I’m honored that she shared that with me.

Q: What made you partner with St. Jude {0:15}

Q: Why is it so important to give back? {1:20}

Q: How do you juggle being a Mom, a wife, and giving back? In short, she takes one day at a time and enjoys just being the everyday Mom. She takes the kids to their doctor’s appointments, etc. {3:25}

Q: What is next for Erica Campbell? {5:54} Whispers: Her answer includes new music from Erica Campbell & Mary Mary and more…

Q: What do you love the most about the holiday season? {7:00}

Erica gave a word with this one, when all the fame and fortune is gone all we have is our family. I was already a fan, but now I love her more.

You still have time to do some shopping in the St. Jude Gift Book They have something for everyone in the family, at work, strangers, your favorite delivery persons. EVERYONE!!!

 Thanks for always supporting St. Jude.

    I love Mrs. Erica and St Jude! I was able to participate in the Grand Opening of the Target House years ago when it first opened when I was in high school. My high school sang at the grand opening.

    That public success and private failure, GURRRRL! That right there got me reevaluating my ENTIRE life. If that ain’t the truth!

    Nice to know that she’s just like the rest of us. I love it when artists use their celebrity status in profound ways.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Same here Michelle, to know that this value was instilled in her since she was a child. As an artist you should be responsible with your status.
