Watch this video to see the story behind her album.
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 week here: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/mandisa-opens-overcoming-depression-47020463
Sharing from my heart:
Wow, I don't even know what to say about this new CD by Mandisa except that it's POWERFUL and beautiful! She starts off with a voicemail intro which I was not expecting and from that point I was hooked. I've always loved Mandisa and didn't realize that she was struggling with depression and was in tears as I listened to her. I've known many people including family and friends that have struggled with depression and it's a long, hard road but God can lift you out of that pit! Mandisa is victorious and didn't let Satan win this battle! This would be a great CD to share with someone you know that struggles with depression, it could be the key that encourages them to seek the Lord and cast that depression on Him. I highly recommend Out of the Dark.
