Gospel music artist Tamela Mann has been sparkling a lot lately!! She has certainly been busy.
Tamela recently interviewed in round table fashion on CNN’s Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien and several other journalists. She talked about her role in the highly popular movie Sparkle as Whitney Houston’s best friend.
“It was wonderful,” Mann says. “I mean it was nothing like I’ve heard. She didn’t come in acting like a diva. She was very professional, very pleasant to work with. I mean we had a lot of fun. We’d sit and talked about God a lot on the set and kids of course and singing.”
Mann who is also an award winning gospel singer talked about sharing some of her songs with Houston before they debuted on her new album “Best Days”. “She was actually like one of the first persons to hear a couple of my songs before they came out… I asked her ‘do you mind?’ and she was like ‘yea!’ So she was singing and she was like ‘yea baby get to this part and just ride it.’ But it was really wonderful working with her.”
Tamela also talked about her current CD, Best Days, and her upcoming cooking adventure show, Hanging With The Manns, with her husband actor David Mann.
