Erica Campbell has another reason to "luh God." She has officially become the first gospel singer to reach 1 million followers on Instagram.

The 43-year-old "I Luh God" gospel singer took to Instagram to show her fans appreciation for helping her expand her reach.

"I love you and I appreciate your kindness, love and support," she wrote. "You've poured into my life and my ministry."

This week, Campbell will show her fans how much they mean by providing a sneak peak of her hit WEtv show, "Mary Mary" and her upcoming music video "God You Are," which was created from fan submissions.

"In celebration of 1 Million IG followers, I'm giving it right back to you," she wrote.

Campbell's reach has expanded beyond the Mary Mary group that she started close to two decades ago with her sister, Tina Campbell. After embarking on her solo music career in 2013, Erica released her luxury hair extension line last year.

These days Campbell is beyond busy with her Mary Mary reality television show, solo career and responsibility as first lady of the California Worship Center church. She previously spoke to The Christian Post about balancing her multiple ventures.

"You just take one day at a time. It is a lot, but I don't feel overwhelmed," the "Help" singer revealed to CP last year. "I feel like I'm busy, but if God gives you the vision, He will give you the provision to handle it. So I have a great staff of people. I don't do anything in my own strength or by myself."

"I just say thank you for the support, I believe there are people that pray for me and lift me up so I say thank you so much. I couldn't do this without the power of prayer, so I'm very grateful for everyone who's been supportive up until this point," Campbell previously told CP. "There's still much more to come. Erica Campbell stays busy."

While there is no simple explanation for how Campbell keeps all of her ventures together, she does make sure to prioritize her family.

"At some point you shut it all off and I'm just a mommy and Warren's wife. I make the best of it and take it one day at a time," she said. "I don't think there's a specific ABC or 1,2,3 for how to manage my life.

"You literally have to make sure that peace is always present. And peace is not the absence of trouble, it's the presence of Jesus Christ," she revealed. "So I wake up in the morning and I go, 'Jesus be with me today in every phone call, in every issue, in every problem, in every triumph ... be with me in every moment so I handle it right.'"
