Gospel duo Mary Mary have cancelled a Christmas tour over concerns for pregnant star Erica Atkins-campbell.
The singing sisters have called off their Have A Mary Mary Christmas trek to allow Atkins-Campbell time to rest before she gives birth to her third child, which is due in February (12).
A statement from their representative reads, "The singer (Atkins-Campbell) has been advised by doctors that she cannot continue working at her current pace without risk of potential premature delivery. After careful consideration, the ladies have determined it is best to cancel the entire tour at this time, including their New Year's Eve show...
"The ladies have been on an exhaustive cross-country schedule of promotional activities, and, given the medical opinion, recognized what the priorities must be."
Tina Campbell has assured fans that Mary Mary will hit the road again next year (12) to play festive concerts.
She 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."
