Erica And Tina Campbell’s Father Passes Away From Cancer

Erica and Tina Campbell of the popular gospel singing duo ‘Mary, Mary’ took to Twitter last night to confirm that their father Eddie Atkins, Jr. had lost his battle with Cancer and thank fans for their support.


WeTV, which is the home of Tina and Erica’s reality show “Mary Mary” also features a brief write up about the late Mr. Atkins on their webpage.

“Eddie Atkins, Erica and Tina’s loving father is considered the strongest male member of the family and patriarch. As their father and a community leader & youth minister, Mr. Eddie laid the foundation for Erica & Tina’s broad reaching musical platform that allows them to deliver their brand of gospel music not just to the church but to the masses regardless of their walk of life & spiritual understanding. Mr. Eddie still serves as a stable & loving force in the lives of his children and grandchildren. He has been married and divorced from their mother, (Thomasina “Honey” Atkins), three times and some think a fourth try at marriage isn’t out of the question.”

Our condolences go out to the family of Erica and Tina Campbell as they grieve the loss of their father.
