Great news for one of Gospel music's favorite artists. Erica Campbell has been nominated for a BET Award in the Best Gospel Artist category. The announcement was made today, May 14, by BET.

This is her first nomination as a solo artist after having won three BET Awards previously as part of the dynamic Gospel duo Mary Mary. Campbell is being recognized for her solo debut "HELP." The album was released on MyBlock Inc / eOne earlier this year and was an immediate hit. The CD, heralded as one of the best gospel albums this year, debuted at Number 1 on the Top Gospel Chart and Number 6 on the Top 200 Chart.

"HELP" was the number one gospel album for 4 weeks in a row, and has maintained the number one slot for 6 weeks total. The title track, "Help," is number 6 on the Gospel BDS chart and continues to connect with audiences across the country.

Erica Campbell is headlining the McDonald's Inspiration Gospel Tour this summer. The multi-city tour will make stops in 11 markets, including: Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Jackson, Los Angeles, Memphis, Newark, Oakland, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Raleigh. The tour hits the D.C. area May 23 at Ebenezer A.M.E. Church.

The New York Times recently said "her [Erica's] performance, as a whole was something rare - poised, emphatic, nongrandiose, self-contained, empathetic, extravagant."

In its third season on WE tv, Erica's hit show, "Mary Mary," has garnered the best ratings to date. The season finale airs tomorrow May 15 at 9 p.m. EST/CST on WE tv.

The BET Awards will air live on Sunday, June 29 at 8 p.m. EST on BET Networks from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, CA.
