This year has been nothing short of amazing for iconic gospel duo Mary Mary, from their outstanding performance of “Lift Every Voice” at Super Bowl LVI to their friendly Easter VERZUZ celebration a few weeks ago alongside BeBe & CeCe Winans.
It looks like celebration for the “Shackles” hitmakers won’t be slowing down anytime soon now that Black Music Honors is set to give the ladies their flowers along with a few other iconic Black musicians.
