About Mandisa:
Mandisa was a voice of encouragement and truth to people facing life's challenges all around the world.. She performed her three RIAA Certified Gold hit singles "Overcomer," "Good Morning (feat. TobyMac)" and "Stronger" on ABC’s Good Morning America (GMA), with “Stronger” becoming an anthem and creating opportunities such as welcoming the emotional return of beloved morning host Robin Roberts back to GMA and an invitation to perform the national anthem during a Sunday night NFL Network game to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Her 2013 GRAMMY® award-winning album Overcomer debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Albums Chart. The album’s title track proved to be a smash at radio and earned the GRAMMY® for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song. Mandisa, also a 2-time K-LOVE Fan Awards co-host, debuted her latest chart-topping album Out Of The Dark alongside sharing the moving story of her fight with depression for the very first time on GMA as well. The latest 15 track collection includes notables such as the top 5 hits "Unfinished" and "Bleed The Same (feat. TobyMac, Kirk Franklin)." In 2021 she released "You Keep Hope Alive" with worship leader and Gotee Recording artist Jon Reddick, and when COVID-19 paused touring, Mandisa immediately took to YouTube to share what was on her heart during “Mornings with Mandisa” sessions, which morphed into “Mornings with Mandisa & Friends,” a round table discussion covering a myriad of topics that takes place via Zoom on the 24th of each month. That same year, Mandisa launched “What If We Were Real,” a candid talk show on YouTube hosted by the singer that featured a panel of guests and explored relevant subjects not often discussed in church circles. Mandisa passed away on April 18, 2024 at the age of 47.
