Have Yourself A Mary Mary Christmas

California sisters Erica and Tina Atkins-Campbell are a contemporary gospel duo called Mary Mary. Despite their moniker the girls are not in the least bit contrary, they do however do a great line in Christmas music as evidenced by their 2006 album 'A Mary Mary Christmas'. The album's promo single was 'Carol of The Bells', an age old sacred Christmas song that requires plenty of ingenuity to pull it off. Thankfully the girls were up for the challenge and in its near unrecognisable guise 'Carol of The Bells' became one of the many highlights on an album that is overwhelmingly religious in tone. Whereas there is a big temptation for artists to change their outlook to fit the traditional template of how a Christmas song should sound like Mary Mary just stick to how their songs sound so 'A Mary Mary Christmas' was a boon for their fans and those looking for a festive soundtrack that deviated from the norm.

Of the 11 tracks on 'A Mary Mary Christmas' you'll know a good handful as they've been cosying up alongside your festive experience for the longest time. That said there are an equal amount of tracks that are not at all well known. New song 'California Christmas' appears twice, once in its original format and as a remix and it is a nice departure to hear how those who live in a yearlong hot clime celebrate the holidays when it's normally a diet of snow and open fires that we feast upon. This slick urban song is blessed with a lovely chorus that might remind one of Destiny’s Child yet on the remix which featured Damani on guest vocals as it took a distinct hip-hop slant.

'A Mary Mary Christmas' opens in dramatic fashion with 'Tis The Season' intent on pushing the sitting room furniture to the side to make way for an impromtu dancefloor. It has a real party vibe that in drenched in flashes from a disco past as well as displaying the girls’ up-tempo Gospel template. Mary Mary take ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ to the lush plains of Africa and in the process give it the potential to pick up airings outside of the holidays. ‘Hark The Herald Angels Sing’ is much more what you’d expect as Tina and Erica take this cherished old carol and give it an R&B sheen.

Mary Mary have had their own eponymously titled TV series that began in 2012 with the December editions stocked high with Christmas numbers.
