The Mann Family World Tour made a stop in Jacksonville at The Potter’s House on Friday, May 19th. This awesome family brought the party to the First Coast. In addition to David and Tamela Mann, the couples’ children Tia and David Jr. were also on hand to bring the crowd to their feet. The show opened with video clips and promos for their reality show, The Mann’s that airs Tuesday evenings on TV ONE. The next segment of the show involved David Jr. spinning music giving the audience a sample of his DJ skills, then he introduced his sister Tia, who performed a set that gave the audience a sampling of her vocal prowess.
Following Tia, David Mann hit the stage and the crowd rose to their feet, welcoming him to Jacksonville. He offered an awesome stand-up routine which included video clips of some of the iconic characters the public has loved. He also sang his classic “grand daddy” song which inspired the audience to break into side-splitting laughter. Tamela Mann brought the songs of praise and worship. She went from oldies in her earlier career which included her solo piece on Kirk Franklin’s “Now Behold the Lamb”, her staple song “Take Me To The King” and current titles on her new CD “God Provides”.
