    One of the most commercially successful contemporary Christian and gospel vocalists of the late 2000s and early 2010s, Mandisa, born Mandisa Lynn Hundley in 1976, grew up in Sacramento, California. She sang in her church and eventually studied vocal performance at American River College. Later, she continued her musical studies at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee, where she was a member of the Fisk Jubilee Singers. After college, Mandisa found work as a session and backup vocalist for such name artists as Trisha Yearwood and Shania Twain. In 2006, she competed during the fifth season of American Idol and gained a following through her performances.

    After her elimination from American Idol, Mandisa quickly plugged herself into the contemporary Christian and gospel markets. In early 2007, she appeared with Kirk Franklin on TobyMac's Portable Sounds. Later that year, she released her debut album, True Beauty, on which she was joined by the Fisk Jubilee Singers and TobyMac. It topped Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart. She followed it with a holiday recording, It's Christmas, and released her second proper studio album, the Grammy-nominated Freedom, in 2009. Her output became less gospel-oriented, rooted more in straight-ahead CCM. What If We Were Real, released in 2011, was also nominated for a Grammy, while 2013's Overcomer took the award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. Out of the Dark arrived four years later, following a deep depression precipitated by the death of a close friend.

    we can all overcome and feel redemded when God does something great in our lives and we the struggle finally end at the end of a hard road. thank you for letting me know that there is a end to the hurt and pain if you turn it over to God and let him handle everything in your life because we can never know what is best for us and what great plans he has for all of our futures.

    She is great musically as well as a role model! We need more American Idol winners and finalists like her and Carrie Underwood that can reach out to both the secular and non secular world in hopes that non-Christians will see them and want to get to know the Lord as well and have that relationship with him!

    I love love love her music. It's so obvious in her life (that although her life is not perfect) she's going to serve God anyway and every way that she can. What a testimony! And her songs have awesome messages and just make you want to sing!I hope more people check out her music, cause it's just that awesome.
