Two-time NAACP Image Award-Winning Actor and Comedian David Mann and his wife, Grammy® Award-Winning, NAACP Image-Award Winning Actress Tamela Mann, are celebrating their 30-year love story with the release of their first joint album, Us Against The World: The Love Project (Tillymann Music/Orchard/Sony) today, November 9, 2018.
Inspired by David and Tamela’s new memoir, Us Against the World: Our Secrets to Love, Marriage, and Family(November 13), this soulful 10-song musical collaboration about resilient and enduring love is brimming with the couple’s vocal chemistry. The project is produced by David, Tamela and their son David Mann Jr. The Us Against the World albumis a candidly honest chronicle of defining moments in David and Tamela’s relationship. The two recreate an epic revelation from early on in their marriage that could have undone them on the heart-wrenching yet resolutely hopeful track by David, “I Love You.” On “Mason Jar” Tamela’s tender vocals pay tribute to her grandmother, mother and love of her life, David. The first single, now impacting Urban AC radio, is “Good Love,” a timeless romantic duet in the vein of a Motown classic featuring David and Tamela’s soulfully smooth harmonies. The album reconstructs other ‘big reveals’ in the couple’s relationship, ultimately leading to “Signs,” a love letter to each other.
“We made Us Against the World because we want people to be uplifted, spiritually encouraged, and feel hopeful about love, life, relationships, and family,” said David Mann. “This is our first joint project and it’s been a dream come true to record together. We hope these songs will inspire a renewed commitment to marriage and family,” said Tamela Mann.
