On this episode of Da Fixx, we had the pleasure of interviewing the power couple of the entertainment industry, David and Tamela Mann. This year they celebrated 35 years of marriage and they’re letting us in on the secretes to a successful partnership!
A Blessed Day on the Radio

Every day we get to do what we love on the radio is a blessed day. We’re grateful for the opportunity to share our thoughts on faith, marriage, mental health, and more. We believe that nothing can separate us from God’s love, a love that sustains and builds us. This understanding has been instrumental in maintaining our mental health and peace.
Dice shared a powerful insight she gained from a pastor’s sermon about how failure brings us closer to God. This wisdom has helped her overcome personal shortcomings. We were excited to have David and Tamela Mann on our show, and we encouraged our listeners to tune in for the enlightening conversation.
The Journey of David and Tamela Mann

David and Tamela Mann are not just known for their acting, singing, and entrepreneurship, but also for their enduring 35-year marriage. They shared with us how they navigate challenges, emphasizing the importance of friendship, love, and faith in Jesus. They acknowledged their moments of frustration but choose to work through their differences rather than considering divorce. Their love for each other and their friendship have been the foundation of their relationship.
Communication, they said, is key. They’ve had to learn how to effectively communicate with each other, handle disagreements, and still manage to fulfill their professional obligations. They sometimes use humor to diffuse tension and make each other laugh. They never intended to be famous; they just wanted to take care of their family. They’re grateful for the opportunities they’ve been given and desire to use their platform to bless and encourage others.

David and Tamela Mann have a mission to uplift and encourage people through their work in movies, plays, television, and concerts. They want to bring positivity and joy into people’s lives. They emphasize the importance of fighting for relationships and marriages, and they want to inspire others to do the same.
They shared their music journey, starting with Kirk Franklin and the Family and eventually branching out into their own solo projects. Tamela shared her initial fear of performing solo and acting, but she is grateful for the opportunities and growth she has experienced. They talked about their love project and the importance of clean love music. They expressed excitement about their upcoming tour and the opportunity to share their gifts and talents together.
Personal Growth and Future Projects

Tamela talked about how she used to feel like her words didn’t have value, but now she realizes it’s okay to tell her story. David shared that he used to be an angry child, but he has learned to control his anger. They both emphasized the importance of supporting and helping each other in their marriage.
