Mary Mary broke onto the music scene with their popular song "Shackles (Praise You)"—which is considered one of the pioneering songs of urban contemporary gospel music. The group's name, as stated in an interview is inspired by the two famous Mary's from the Bible; Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, and Mary Magdelene.

In addition, the duo has released two Gold albums: Incredible (2002), and Mary Mary (2005), which both charted No. 1 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums. They have also received three Grammys, among other awards. Price: $42.50 - $57.50 Address: The Auditorium Theatre, 885 East Main Street, Rochester, NY 14605
