Tamela Mann: “I Was Good Enough To Be Heard, But Not Seen”
Actress and gospel singer Tamela Mann has been having a great time lately. With an award-winning song in 2013, “Take Me To The King” off an award-winning album, tours and a successful family reality show, her star continues to rise.
But it wasn’t always like that.
When asked what some of the hurdles were to get into the industry, Tamela candidly said, “One of the main struggles was my weight! I’ve always been good enough to be heard but not seen,” she revealed.
The vocalist who got her start singing in Kirk Franklin’s choir previously spoke more about her weight loss.
“I’ve lost over 140 pounds. I used to be a 30/32 and now I’m at an 18/20,” she said proudly
Her husband, co-star and collaborator, actor David Mann was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2007, and now the couple is working with the American Diabetes Association to help others live a healthier lifestyle.
