David and Tamela Mann are back for season 2 of Bounce TV’s Mann & Wife, which also happens to be the networks most watched original series, the Christian power couple talked to the Huffington Post about the hit show as well as their faith and unconditional love.
The Texas natives say that they are grateful to be working with Bounce TV because they were able to create a show that was organic and true to who they were. Tamela says their journey to blossom through remarkable people such as Kirk Franklin and Tyler Perry embodies the definition of ‘true blessings.’ David and Tamela attribute their success to God, unconditional love and the connection they have with their fans.
“We touch homes and people feel like they know us. We remind people of their own family members and friends. Even when we meet our fans in person there is an instant connection. They relate to us. It’s like we’re their cousins” explained Tamela. “We never met a stranger no matter where we go,” adds David. “When we see our fans we talk to them and have full conversations. We’re as excited to meet and talk to people as they are to meet us so they really support us.” The Manns share that making God the center of all that they do has been the anchor of their personal and professional success.
“Faith has been everything in our lives, it hasn’t been just a minor role but THE role. We’ve been faithful to God and he’s been faithful to us. Without him we wouldn’t be where we are.” said David.
The Manns confess that along with faith, it is their undying commitment to one another that has kept their marriage strong. “Divorce was never an option,” Tamela shared. “We just threw that off the table from the beginning. They key to our union is that we really just love each other and I don’t just love him I like him. We like being together. I prayed for someone like him who did the same things I did…. from music, being in the church and… some of the things I like to do. The Lord actually heard my prayer and I got what I asked for. It’s really been a blessing because we’ve been together since our teens, twenties, thirties, forties and now going into our fifties. We’ve been married longer than we were single,” said Tamela.
