GRAMMY winner Mandisa’s awaited fifth album, Out Of The Dark (Capitol CMG), will arrive on May 19, her first in four years. With 1 million+ records sold, Mandisa is back with a renewed passion for her music, after spending much of the past few years suffering from depression. She is emerging from the pit of depression with a willingness to be totally transparent and vulnerable about her journey. ABC's Good Morning America will broadcast the exclusive first television interview and performance with Mandisa on April 26, her first in over three years.
“My hope is that people will be on this journey with me,” explains Mandisa. “When I began, I was in a really dark place, but where I am today is so much better and so much lighter!”

The Overcomer Is Still Here| Posted May 19, 2017 THIS REVIEW IS ADAPTED FROM A REVIEW I POSTED ON MY WEBSITE. TO CHECK OUT MY SONG-BY-SONG REVIEW OF MANDISA'S ALBUM (AND TO WIN A FREE COPY), CLICK HERE!
It’s been four years since GRAMMY winner and American Idol alum has released any music, and I’m sure fans were excited when they heard that she’s back.
Mandisa has spent the last few years deep in the pit. But her friends helped her see the light, and now she is “Out Of The Dark.”
This album features the single "Unfinished." I groaned because I was afraid of a typical pop song. While it is a pop song, they lyrics are great! The message of this song has been speaking to me a lot lately. God is not finished with me yet!
"I'm Still Here" is a bouncy and cheery songand is an anthem song that I wanna sing out to! I will say that "Prove Me Wrong" is one of the best songs on the album. This album also features amazing collaborations with tobyMac ("Bleed The Same"), Britt Nicole ("What You're Worth"), and Jeremy Camp ("My First Love").
Overall, I did enjoy the album. While there were a few songs that I didn’t enjoy stylistically and a couple that I didn’t enjoy too much because how poppy they felt, there were some amazing songs on this album. These songs carry the banner of triumph and should encourage those who are down and those who are fine. I would recommend that you do purchase this album.
My favorite tracks:
Back To Life
The One He Speaks Through
Prove Me Wrong
