Meet David & Tamela Mann

David and Tamela Mann have been at the forefront of the contemporary gospel movement long before spirituality became cool in Hollywood.

The happily married couple – 20 years and counting – began their musical journey as members of Kirk Franklin & The Family.

It was their voices on songs like 'The Reason Why I Sing,' 'Now Behold The Lamb,' 'Lean on Me' and 'He's Able' that helped make Franklin into a household name.

After record company politics and other extenuating circumstances – read: lawsuit – caused the tumultuous end to The Family as a recording entity, The Mann's hit the road with an upstart playwright named Tyler Perry.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Though the Fort Worth, Texas-bred twosome have likely toured every city in the United States in Perry productions like 'I Can Do Bad All By Myself,' 'Diary of a Mad Black Woman,' 'Diary of a Mad Black Woman,' 'What's Done In The Dark;' the two are now enjoying delivering their message of inspiration, encouragement and humor both on the big screen in 'Madea Goes To Jail' and on television with 'Meet The Browns.'
