Gospel singer Yolanda Adams has come out to defend Erica Campbell after her photo received backlash from the Christian community with many deeming it ‘too sexy’.
"I know for a fact that Mary Mary-because I've known them for years-they don't try to be sexual," Adams told Think Positive Magazine recently. "Some of the things that they want to wear, they're in style."
The controversial photo was a taken for Erica’s forthcoming solo debut album, ‘Help’.
The singer, in a quote from an interview with Essence.com said that it was “about confidence and realizing that God made you and that you are beautiful just the way you are." She also added that “young girls shouldn't only get sexy images from people who are not proclaiming Jesus. But I am. And I'm cute too."
