Gospel music star Erica Campbell took home the Best Gospel and/or Inspirational Song award at the Soul Train awards in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Campbell, one half of Grammy-award winning duo Mary Mary, won the category for her number one single "Help" feat. Lecrae. She took to social networking site Instagram to thank the acclaimed rapper for lending his vocals to the track.

"@lecrae thanks so much for blessing this song with your lyrics. #Help #soultrainawards2014 #wewon Thanks Brother!!" Campbell captioned alongside a photo of herself and Lecrae.

Earlier this year the single claimed the number one spot on the Billboard Gospel Albums charts. Campbell, who continues to succeed with her music even as a solo artist, previously spoke about her desire to touch people with her debut solo album which was released in March.

"Everybody needs help whether you are in jail, whether you are a single mom who doesn't know God and thinks that you're in it alone, 'Help' can help you," she previously told The Christian Post. "There's something for everybody. I think sometimes even nonbelievers have to acknowledge there has to be somebody greater than me that's helping me, because there are blessings all around us and if we open our eyes and pay attention we'll see it whether we grew up in church or not."

The married mother of three shared her hopes to reach a broad spectrum of people, religious or otherwise, with her gospel album.

"I am really hoping it reaches the unchurched people," said Campbell. "I'm so grateful for the believers who support and listen but I'm so excited for the people who are learning about Jesus through my music. Wanting to know who he is because of my music. That is just such a huge blessing."

In May Campbell co-hosted the McDonald's Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour, which supports Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).

The singer performed alongside other gospel greats, such as Stellar Award-winners Anthony Brown & Group TherAPy and hip-hop sensation Uncle Reece, as part of a free Summer concert series across 12 cities.

The event raised more than $108,000 for RMHC, setting a new record for the third consecutive year in a row.
