With a full band behind her, including backup singers, and a giant video screen projecting images throughout the night, a joyful Tina Campbell, along with husband Teddy, and members of the Campbell family including sister Goo Goo Atkins, all gathered to celebrate “An Evening With Tina Campbell,” a night arranged by the singer to share her personal journey with an audience of several hundred in attendance. The evening also marked the kick off of the upcoming “An Evening With Tina Campbell” tour. Dates to be announced shortly.
The evening was all the more special as Campbell’s release of her #1 solo debut cd, the independently released It’s Personal and single, “Destiny” stunned all with its powerful debut. On Friday, June 13th, at the much anticipated LA event, a radiant Tina and Teddy shared their private moments of deepest despair and subsequent healing. Tina performed songs from It’s Personal, read excerpts from her book, “I Need A Day To Pray,” and discussed her journey. During the day of the event, Tina engaged with fans via Yahoo’s popular Twitter Takeover feed: as she prepared for the evening, fans were treated to multiple inside images of the singer at various stages leading up to the event.
“I approach life courageously, I fight the good fight of faith to win,” the singer pronounced, adding, “ my heart is open and I am determined,” reflecting back on the recent past and the struggle she and Teddy faced in trying to hold on to their marriage.
Looking very much the image of peace and fulfillment, Campbell presented her “honest self” in an evening that was a combination sermon, book reading, concert performance and self-confession, providing an extraordinary, revealing, and completely memorable evening. Songs performed included “Destiny,” “I Call You Jesus,” “Speak the Word,” and “More.”
“An Evening with Tina Campbell” will tour this fall. Expect dates to be announced shortly. Go to www.iamtinacampbell.com to view the sizzle reel from the event.
