In a time when the music industry is in the decline where fewer and fewer records are being sold, it's a rare fleet for any album to be certified gold, such as selling over 500,000 copies. Thus, congratulations are in order to Tamela Mann. Her 'Best Days' (CD/ Deluxe Edition) is certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for the achievement of selling more than 500,000 copies.
Tillymann Music Group label head and Tamela's manager and husband, David Mann, presented Tamela with her RIAA Certified Gold plaque at a pre-screening of Bounce TV's 'Mann & Wife' during the Stellar Awards weekend in Las Vegas. A presentation was also made to Tillymann Music Group distribution partner Central South Distribution.
"God continues to bless me, my family and my music in 2015," said Tamela. "Learning 'Best Days' went Gold is a wonderful surprise in addition to kicking off a great weekend where we previewed our new show 'Mann & Wife' and co-hosted the Stellar Awards with my husband David, and our friend Rickey Smiley. I'm feeling overwhelmed with thankfulness, and to God be the glory."
'Best Days' includes the RIAA Certified Gold and No. 1 track "Take Me To The King," the No. 1 track "I Can Only Imagine," and the current chart-climbing, top ten hit "This Place." The album won Special Event CD of the Year at the 30th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards.
