MaryMary’s much anticipated Christmas tour has been cancelled due to Erica Campbell’s pregnancy. The singer has been advised by doctors to cut down on her work schedule so as to reduce the risk of having a premature baby.
Erica says of her decision to cancel the tour, “This was a very hard decision for me. I’m accustomed to pushing myself beyond my doctor recommendations during my pregnancies, but after having seen my sister, Tina, deal with a premature birth as a direct result of an exhaustive pace, I recognize how real this is. Although my passion told me to push on as usual in these past months, my wisdom, as of my last week’s doctor’s visit, told me to take care of myself and my new baby-to-be. Just know that I have the greatest passion for whom I sing about and a great love and respect for whom I sing to, so I’ll be back to what I live for as soon as I take care of mommy business.”
Her sister Tina Campbell adds, “Our commitment to our passion of music and our fans is without question, but allowing wisdom, common sense, and our commitment to family to take the lead at this point is necessary. We fully intend to return to our passion and our commitment to music in late spring and look forward to rescheduling the ‘Have A Mary Mary Christmas Tour’ in 2012.”
Campbell previously announced her pregnancy during a segment on Good morning America. She and husband Warryn are expecting a girl in February 2012. MaryMary initially broke the news on their website and eventually shared it with Facebook fans.
