Actor and comedian David Mann along with Grammy-winning gospel singer Tamela Mann are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary in 2018, and the couple is sharing their tips to having a successful relationship in the book Us Against the World: Our Secrets to Love, Marriage, and Family. The book will be published by W Publishing/Harper Collins Christian on Nov. 13. Us Against the World, which the couple wrote with Shaun Sanders, had been announced earlier this year, but it now has a publication date. The Manns, who have six children, are hitting the road with two of their kids (David Jr. and Tia) for the Us Against the World Mann Family Tour, which begins Oct. 11 in Fresno, California, and ends Nov. 11 in Cincinnati. The concerts will be variety shows.
In addition to her singing career, Tamela Mann is an actress who has appeared in several plays and movies, mostly by Tyler Perry. The Manns starred in Perry's TBS sitcom "Met the Browns," which was on the air from 2009 to 2011. The couple then starred in the Bounce sitcom "Mann & Wife" which was on the air from 2015 to 2017. They've signed on for reality TV with "The Manns," which debuted on TV One in 2017.
David commented in a statement about the Us Against the World book: "We’ve always been transparent about our relationship and family with fans. In our first book, we’ll tell our whole story and share our secrets to a successful marriage."
Tamela added, "Our marriage is a top priority and our greatest accomplishment. We’re excited to share what we’ve learned about doing life together as a couple and how to fully love your spouse."
