EEW Magazine reports:
Her exhilarated response was priceless.
Before the big reveal, in a hushed voice, Mr. Mann, known by many as funnyman, “Mr. Brown” said via Social Cam, “Tam don’t know, but she’s been nominated for a GRAMMY, so I’m about to go tell her.”
He then quietly walked down the hallway to find the missus, who had just finished singing their grandson to sleep.
“Hey dear, look,” he said, “I want you to see something.”
So Mrs. Mann walked over, dressed in a turquoise t-shirt, sporting eyeglasses.
“You’ve just been nominated for a GRAMMY,” Mann sprung on her.
Immediately, the singer’s mouth dropped open and she let out a scream of delight, and covered her mouth, as not to awaken the sleeping baby.
“I got chill bumps,” she said and then asked, “Why you have to get me on camera?”
Afterward, she broke down crying. “Oh my God that is so great… God is great,” she said emotionally, covering her face.
After a few moments passed, the proud husband admitted that he was getting choked up and needed to turn the camera off to truly enjoy the moment with his wife.
“Take Me to the King” written and produced by the one and only Kirk Franklin, landed at #1 on the Billboard Gospel radio chart where it remained for weeks, marking the very first #1 track of her career.
Additionally, Mann’s CD, “Best Days,” released in August of this year, debuted at #1 on multiple music sales charts, including #1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Album Chart, Billboard’s Top Christian/Gospel Chart, and the Christian Music Trade Association’s (CMTA) Current Gospel Overall Chart.
The GRAMMY nomination is well-deserved indeed.
