Mary Mary's Erica Campbell may have taken some heat for the tight-fitting dress she wore on the cover of her latest album, but the Christian pop singer says she refuses to sell out to the world.

"I would never sacrifice my destiny for a dollar sign, and I think far too often in entertainment, we do that," Erica told Sister 2 Sister in an exclusive interview in the magazine's June/July issue.

Campbell told the magazine she and her sister, Tina, have had plenty of opportunities to move into R&B music. The duo turned down the temptation every time.

"They absolutely told us that there would be another million dollars on top of the offer if we sang R&B. They offered us that several times, even after the first record came out," she said. "We were never tempted by that because I think serving your purpose in life and knowing your place and your position and living out your destiny is much more important than a dollar sign."

For a limited time, we are extending our celebration of the 40th anniversary of Charisma. As a special offer, you can get 40 issues of Charisma magazine for only $40!
