In this edition of the Ericaism, Erica Campbell recalls a time before she was a gospel artist, at 14-years-old, when she realized that she was very blessed. Later on, while she was going to hair school and hustling to be a gospel singer, she didn’t give up because she had gospel music to keep her going! She talks about sitting in her car listening to Donnie McClurkin to keep her going even in the face of being told “no,” or not seeing any tangible evidence that she would ever make it.
Erica says, as someone who relied so heavily on gospel music to stay encouraged, she is grateful to be that artist for some people today since she knows what that’s like. Click on the audio player to hear more in this exclusive clip from “Get Up! Mornings With Erica Campbell.”
