(June 13th, 2012 - New York, NY) My Block/Columbia Records inspirational duo and WE tv reality stars Mary Mary participated in one of the largest celebrity studded surprise events this decade, Friday, June 8th. Faith-based entertainment mogul, Bishop T.D. Jakes was honored by worldwide dignitaries, leaders, and celebrities in a surprise gala commemorating his 35 years of ministry and service. Hosted by CNN's Soledad O'Brien and director/writer/producer, Tyler Perry - friends of the mogul descended into Dallas, TX to showcase their support and admiration for his flourishing career and global impact and influence.

Mary Mary gave a riveting performance of their beloved song, Yesterday, and were joined by the company of entertainments' finest such as: Oprah Winfrey, Emmitt Smith, Gayle King, BeBe Winans, Chaka Khan, Kelly Price, Derek Luke, Megan Good, Bernice King, Ledisi, Jordin Sparks, and more. Additionally - video presentations were given by luminaries such as former President Bill Clinton, Dr. Phil McGraw, and the Mandela family among others.

The gala took place just a few days after a whirlwind week for the ladies where they attended the 7th Annual Cinderella Ball in Washington DC (a fundraiser seeking to improve the quality of life for children with disabilities and life-threatening diseases) and performed at NYC's Apollo Theater's Hall of Fame induction for Lionel Richie and Etta James before making their way to Dallas, TX to perform in the gala for Bishop Jakes.
