Eddie JenkinsErica and Tina Campbell of the Gospel singing group Mary Mary are mourning the loss of their father, Eddie Atkins.

According to accounts on the Facebook and Twitter pages of various Adkins family members, Mr. Atkins, a church Elder is no longer with us. News reports say he died after a long battle with cancer.

Erica and Tina told me in an NPR interview that their father’s role as a street preacher during their younger years laid the foundation for their far-reaching style.

Mary Mary acknowledged their father’s passing in the following tweets:

Our hearts are heavy but we can rejoice knowing our father knew we Loved him RIP Elder Eddie A Atkins Jr. Rest in the arms of Jesus, Daddy

Thanks 4 all the kind words & prayers sent today. Our Dad was a great man, but he’s with Jesus now he taught us how to pray & trust God
