We are sad to having found out that the father of gospel singing sister duo Mary Mary has lost his battle to cancer.
Eddie Atkins is the father of eight, including Mary Mary and has made an appearance on their WE TV reality show Mary Mary. Eddie was on the episode where they conversed about marriage and family over the course of the show and he made an appearance at one of his daughter’s weddings.
Sadly, Mary Mary lost their father on Tuesday. Although their hearts are heavy, they tweeted out their support to fans
