Transparent takes readers on Erica and Tina's journey from growing up in Inglewood, California with gospel-singing parents and six other siblings, to singing with secular R & B and soul performers and putting out platinum-selling Christian albums, all without sacrificing their beliefs. The sisters share how their faith in Jesus Christ helped them overcome personal and professional obstacles. This book appeals not only to Christians, but to anyone who appreciates strong music and a strong sense of integrity. Mary Mary says their aim is to make music that the entire world, every age and nationality, can relate to. They want the world to be uplifted by their music. Transparent is a celebration of these values.
