*The power couple, David and Tamela Mann, are celebrating their 30-year marriage with the release of their new memoir, Us Against the World: Our Secrets to Love, Marriage, and Family available November 13, 2018 (W Publishing/Harper Collins). In their new memoir, the couple candidly shares an inspiring, funny, and up-close look at their lives while offering hope and practical advice for building a strong relationship, marriage and family.

Ever since the NAACP Image Award winners David and Grammy® Award winner Tamela Mann were key members of Kirk Franklin’s Platinum selling group, ‘The Family,’ fans have been clamoring for the duo to release a joint album. That time has finally come. David and Tamela plan to release, Us Against The World: The Love Project, a soulful 10-song musical collaboration (6 out of the 10 tracks are duets) on November 9.

Vaughn, this feel-good romantic comedy revolves around Kenni, who has avoided the annual holiday trip to her hometown of Columbia, South Carolina for years.

About the Album:


Us Against the World: The Love Project is a soulful 10-song R&B musical collaboration from the creative spouses about resilient and enduring love. All the songs were inspired by the stories they included in their new book. The album, brimming with David and Tamela’s vocal chemistry, features six duets, Tamela taking a solo spin on two tracks and David singing the remaining two. Each song shares a facet of the couple’s journey – from the most exhilarating happy moments to the challenges that inevitably test a long-standing union, and closes with a track about their three decades of love and commitment. Fans will get to hear new songs from the project on the Manns’ fall tour.

About the Book:




Despite their international fame and numerous awards, David and Tamela Mann still consider their greatest accomplishment to be their thirty years of a happy marriage.

When the two met as teenagers, they discovered a mutual passion for music and family. Three decades later, they have experienced financial struggles, personal brokenness, and life in the spotlight, but they are still loving and laughing out loud together every day.

From the days before they were Mann and wife to the glories of the empty nest, David and Tamela share it all in Us Against the World—a delightful glimpse into a family that is both blended and blessed. With refreshing and often outrageous honesty, this power couple of the entertainment industry lets us in on the day-to-day challenges and successes that make their career—and relationship—work.

So come listen in on the conversations between two imperfect people who have learned to love well—and to never stop laughing.
