My Block Inc. founder and multi-Grammy winning producer, Warryn Campbell, takes home a Grammy for Best Gospel Song for the record breaking single, “God In Me,” co-written and performed by Mary Mary.
According to Billboard Magazine, “God In Me” earned the highest ranking for a song, spending 52 weeks on a chart and breaking R. Kelly‘s record for “Step In the Name of Love.” Among the multitude of chart-topping accolades and award recognition he received for his work with Mary Mary, The Sound, also produced by Campbell, held the #1 position on the Billboard Gospel Album chart for more than six months and was named Top Gospel Album by Billboard Magazine.
