Tia is a fashionista and loves to showcase the latest in looks and styles. She sang in the choir with him. She was kind of bragging on me at her school. Basically what her friend said was, "You guys think ya'll can sing, but I'm going to bring somebody here that will blow ya'll out. She said that, I didn't say that.
I went and sang for them. She really blew us away. We just grew from there.
The group that we had, she started singing with us. One day I kissed her, and she fell in love. That was really one of my prayers.

He has a show that's about to come out called "I Can Do Bad. Brown's part in the show was just a small walk-on part. Mine was even smaller. Nobody could have ever imagined that these roles would turn into a movie, a television show and even our own stage play.
Nobody could have ever imagined that. We started building on the character. We started building on the clothes and then we started with the antics, the physical comedy. We started building on all of that and it stuck, thank God.
I guess the people were liking it, and it just kind of stuck. Many, many times I've thought you were going to steal the show from Madea played by a cross-dressing Perry.
It's kind of give-and-take as to who's doing what.

I genuinely enjoy seeing people having a good time. To see people laugh. This would be my equivalent to a high. I just like to bring joy to people. That laughter, it's so healing, it's medicine. It really is medicine for the soul. We look at different anointings. People are anointed to preach. She's anointed to sing. I believe I'm anointed to just bring joy to people and make people laugh. Did you both starting singing in the church? That's all we know.
You started with Kirk Franklin and the Family. That's where we got our national start. You both have powerful voices. It's nothing but a blessing because we get to be in each other's things.
I told her it's cool that we get to do this together. Everything was built together. I thank God for that. He really pushes me.
