Tina Campbell teams up with her husband, Teddy Campbell, to get church attendees on their feet to praise God 1920s-style in her new music video, “Speak The Word.”
The 41-year-old Mary Mary singer released her latest music video from her debut solo album It’s Personal Thursday. The five minute music video set in the 1920s era features the husband-and-wife duo singing and praising God while encouraging church congregants to do the same.
The video, directed by Derek Blanks, starts off focusing on the image of a Bible before turning into a church party backed by a live band. Tina’s sister and fellow Mary Mary group member Erica Campbell also makes a cameo in the music video, along with their mother, Honey Atkins.
The song is special to Tina because it represents the singer sharing her story with the world.
“It’s autobiographical for me. A few years ago, my life was so bad that the only true therapy I could find was in reading the Bible,” Campbell told EBONY.com, where the video premiered. “I began singing and speaking those truths. Now I’m grateful to be living those truths. It all comes to life in my new single and video ‘Speak The Word.'”
