Los Angeles, Calf. — Husband and wife comedy duo DAVID MANN and TAMELA MANN of the top-rated sitcom Tyler Perry’s “Meet The Browns,” re-released two of their best-selling CDs – David’s comedy CD “Mr. Brown’s Good Ol’ Time Church” and TAMELA’s Gospel CD “Gotta Keep Movin’” – exclusively at TARGET July 27th.
“Mr. Brown’s Good Ol’ Time Church” featuring DAVID MANN’s beloved character “Deacon Leroy Brown” a.k.a. “Mr. Brown,” is a comedy classic that includes the hysterically funny sketch “This Is Yo Grand Daddy!” Recently nominated at the 10th Annual BET Awards for the “Best Gospel” award for her latest CD “The Master Plan,” TAMELA MANN’s first-ever solo project “Gotta Keep Movin’” features the anointed anthem “Speak Lord,” and spawned a Top 20 Billboard Gospel chart hit and 2008 Stellar Award nominations for Female Vocalist of the Year and Contemporary Female Artist of the Year. Both titles, bestsellers when they were initially released, have since been unavailable until the re-release through TARGET stores. TARGET will heavily support these two titles with advertising in their summer circular and in-store presence.
TAMELA and DAVID currently co-star on the #1 rated television show for African American audiences, Tyler Perry’s “Meet The Browns” as father-daughter duo “Mr. Brown” and “Cora.” They both originated these roles in the hit movie of the same title, and co-starred in the roles in other Tyler Perry films including “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” and “Madea Goes To Jail”; and his plays “I Can Do Bad All By Myself, “ “Madea’s Family Reunion” and “Madea’s Class Reunion.”
