Songfacts®:

  • Mary Mary is an American gospel music duo, consisting of sisters Erica Campbell and Tina Atkins. Campbell explained to Artist Direct the story behind this track from their multi-award winning 2008 album, The Sound: "Tina and I know where we come from. Even though we're singing gospel music, we don't try to be perfect. We know that we've made some pretty bad mistakes and we've done some pretty ugly things in our lives. I think that's why we're so confident when we talk about the ability to transform your life from inside out. When we think about all that we are—all the negative things that have taken place in our live—and who we are now, we feel so grateful. I just have to thank God. Changing the way you think is the biggest transformation. You're not negative, not fearful and you're not terrified of life and taking chances. You don't look at a problem as a sign that you're not doing something right. A problem is just a problem, and you're going to make it through and be stronger because of it. 'I Worship You' is about that. It's a really emotional song for my sister and I, because we can't help but look back."
