Gospel artist, Tamela Mann had a twitter question and answer session a couple of days ago, and when asked about her struggles getting into the Gospel Music Industry, her weight came up.
Tamela, who just debuted her new single, One Way was asked by a Twitter follower “What are some of the struggles you faced when entering the gospel music genre?”
Mann was candid in her response, saying that her powerhouse voice almost took a backseat to her weight.
“One of the main struggles is my weight! I’ve always been good enough to be heard but not seen,” she revealed.
Back in 2014, Tamela told the Tom Joyner Morning show that she had lost over 100 lbs.
“I’ve lost over 100 pounds. I used to be a 30/32 and now I’m at an 18/20,” she said on the show.
Back in 2013, Tamela was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, and that’s one of the biggest reasons that she and husband David decided that it was time to get rid of the weight for health reasons.
Tamela is prepping for the return of It’s A Mann’s World on BET, Tuesday, February 23rd and promoting her new single, One Way which is available on iTunes.
