Mandisa wrote her song “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend
Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed
that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in
2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. She
fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her
friends, family and the rest of the world. Mandisa believes if she had kept
going down that road she was on, she would not be here today… but God
stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to
communicate their love for her and God’s love for her. This album is
Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called 'Out Of The
Dark' because that is exactly where God lifted her out of!
You can watch her talk openly about this on Good Morning America last
I am LOVING this album! This is different than previous Mandisa music in my opinion. I feel like there is a lot more heart and just great songs. Of course it has been on repeat in my car every day. I love I'm Still Here, Bleed the Same ( gave me goosebumps the first time I listened to it VERY good!), and the One He Speaks Through. They are all great but these are my favorites right now.She deals with so many issues in this album and so many of the songs spoke to my heart. If you haven't heard these songs or of Mandisa, you need to check out this album ASAP.
