"We couldn't be more thankful to God for this year's Tillymann Entertainment blessings," said Tamela Mann. "Our company is very much all in the family, with our kids taking on roles in the touring, music and acting business. We love working together and enjoy each other's company. The success is just icing on the cake!" adds David Mann.
Earlier this year, Tamela scored her first Grammy® Award win for Best Gospel Performance/Song, a coveted performance slot on the Grammy® stage with Chance the Rapper, and her first Billboard Music Award. Her current release, the Billboard chart topper One Way, spawned two No. 1 hits on the Gospel radio chart in 2017 including "Change Me," which spent 14 weeks at No. 1 and "God Provides," which notched 12 weeks atop the chart.
Leading Billboard's year-end chart honors in Gospel, Tamela reigns as the Top Gospel Artist of 2017 and holds four more chart No. 1's including Top Female and Top Album for One Way. In July, Tamela broke the record for the most No. 1's in the history of Billboard's Gospel Airplay chart when "Change Me" became her sixth leader.
