For this weeks Mashup Mondays, Billboard had gospel duo Mary Mary cover pop star Bruno Mars hit single Just The Way You Are as a dedication to their daughters. Too cute! And they absolutely killed it!
Of the mashup, they told Billboard:
I want [my daughter] to know shes beautiful just the way she is, Mary Marys Erika Atkins-Campbell says of why the duo decided to flip the focus of the song. Sorry Bruno, I know you were singing it to a chick, but Im singing it to my baby girl
I remember the first time hearing that song in my car on the radio, Tina Atkins-Campbell says, adding that she immediately felt you could sing this song to your daughter, you could sing this song to your mama, your grandma, your auntie, any woman thats special in your life.
Along with performing their rendition of the track, they also perform their own song Walking and have a quick Q&A interview with Billboard. They talk about Walking, the message in their music, and their 6th studio album Something Big (which is in stores now).
