(February 11th 2013- New York, NY) My Block/Columbia Records artists, Mary Mary secured the Grammy® for Best Gospel Song at last night's awards bringing their career Grammy® count to four. The win comes on the heels of two Image Award wins along with five Stellar Award wins in 2013 alone - all for their hit single/album "Go Get It." The Urban and Gospel music superstar duo is currently enjoying the success of their originally scripted WE tv reality series, now in its second season which has just been ranked by Nielsen Media as the #1 TV show for African American women in their timeslot on cable.

The ladies have been on a fast track since the beginning of 2013; co-hosting and performing at January's Stellar Awards, taking home the Best Duo and Best Gospel Album awards at February's NAACP Image Awards, and securing their latest Grammy® win. In the midst of their award season activity, Mary Mary had the distinguished honor of being invited to New York City to perform just before former President Bill Clinton spoke at the annual Wall Street Project conference hosted by Reverend Jesse Jackson's Rainbow/PUSH organization. The conference honored former New York Governor David Patterson and music business legend, Berry Gordy.

Showing no signs of fatigue following recent births welcomed by Erica and Tina, their careers continue to blaze forward. In 2012, Mary Mary released their chart-topping cd and single of the same name, Go Get It, as WE tv launched their hit series in the spring, and Season 2 later in the year. The sisters gave birth within six months of each other, both welcoming healthy bouncing bundles of joy.

Billboard Magazine ranked Go Get It, the single and cd in the top 5 and top 10 respectively in the magazine's year-end 2012 issue, and also ranked the duo among the top Gospel Albums Artists Best of 2012 chart in the same issue.

"Mary Mary," the WE tv series which airs Thursdays at 9PM ET/PT, received a CableFAXAward in the faith-based category for Best Show or Series. Interactive One's Digital Gospel Music Awards listed "Go Get It" as Best Gospel Video of the Year.
