Gospel sister duo Mary Mary have canceled their highly anticipated “Have A Mary Mary Christmas Tour.” The upcoming trek was cut short due to member Erica Campbell’s pregnancy with her third child. Doctors advised the mother to be that her current nonstop schedule and performances would set the risk of premature delivery.
“This was a very hard decision for me,” says Erica. “I’m accustomed to pushing myself beyond my doctor recommendations during my pregnancies, but after having seen my sister, Tina, deal with a premature birth as a direct result of an exhaustive pace, I recognize how real this is.”
Erica added: “Although my passion told me to push on as usual in these past months, my wisdom, as of my last week’s doctor’s visit, told me to take care of myself and my new baby-to-be. Just know that I have the greatest passion for whom I sing about and a great love and respect for whom I sing to, so I’ll be back to what I live for as soon as I take care of mommy business.”
Though fans cannot attend a show, they can watch the group on their new WE television series scheduled to begin airing in March 2012.
